PHS Students Observe Long-Distance Open-Knee Surgery

Pittsburg, Kan. (September 19, 2013) – Through Interactive Distance Learning technology from Greenbush, students at Pittsburg High School will be watching a live open-knee surgery being performed almost 725 miles away.

On Friday, September 20, 2013, at 10am, Pittsburg High School students in Mr. James Foresman’s Health Science I class will be viewing the surgery taking place in Columbus, Ohio from their classroom chairs.

“I think it provides an opportunity to see professional health care providers working with a patient, in this case surgery,” said Foresman. “HIPPA has really limited the kinds of exposures our students get access to, especially for the younger students.”

Health Science I is a prerequisite for Health Science II and Health Science III, which is where students currently begin certification for the school’s CAN and EMT training program.

“Perhaps seeing a surgery through IDL lights that spark in a student in which they think ‘yeah, I want to start thinking about being a nurse, or surgeon or someone in health care’," Foresman said. “One of my goals is to expose them to as many aspects of health care and health care professionals as possible.”

Instruction includes students constructing a knee joint, an interactive program to understand procedure and equipment and an activity related to creating a sterile operating environment.
