Siemens Healthineers donates portable diagnostic device to improve learning opportunities in remote nursing care
For years Siemens Healthineers have been innovation experts in health technology, developing new ways to support the future of health care delivery. On November 30, 2022, Siemens Healthineers generously donated their epoc Blood Gas Analysis System to the Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing’s Simulation Lab. This portable device which measures blood samples from patients at the bedside and provides remote, instant results, will be used as part of Bloomberg Nursing’s simulation curriculum for undergraduate and graduate students.
“The Siemens Healthineers epoc Blood Analysis System provides our students with a chance to learn about the ways in which technology is enhancing our ability as nurses to care for patients outside of acute care settings,” says Erica Cambly, Assistant Professor Teaching Stream who oversees much of Bloomberg Nursing’s simulation learning. “As the health care system and the needs of our population shifts in the coming years, simulation learning will need to adapt to focus on new technologies that can assist nurses in their practice.”
