About “Re-purposing Used ATLS Training Skins”:
“We had a request for an I & D of an abscess and lipoma model. We were able to create functional and cost effective models by re-purposing used ATLS skin that would have otherwise been recycled or discarded.”
At SimGHOSTS 2013, $1000 in prizes was distributed to contestants who entered short videos which demonstrate their “Do-It-Yourself projects” which increase lab efficiency or realism.
