Nysmith School for the Gifted

The second semester 7th grade EMed students had the opportunity to tour INOVA Loudoun Hospital. Doctors Morgan and Virmani (both Nysmith parents) showed students around the pediatric ER, brand new trauma room, CAT scan department and the simulation training lab. Students learned first hand about intubation techniques, sonograms, and radio imaging. The highlight of the trip was being able to practice their CPR skills, listening to breath sounds and feeling for changes in pulse on the simulation manikins. We can't thank Dr. Morgan and Dr. Virmani enough for this opportunity! #WhyNysmith ... See MoreSee Less
