dents and students can train, making it challenging to fit much-needed training into a short amount of time. At CESI, surgeons in training perform frequent, safe, realistic, hands-on surgeries using high-definition simulators. Training Tomorrow’s Doctors Today Future emergency doctors learn critical, lifesaving skills inside one of CESI’s replica ERs. There, realistic emergency scenarios come to life with a computer-driven, humanlike mannequin named Sim-Man. Doctors treat victims of car accidents, heart attacks, stroke and other traumas in this simulated environment, where they learn how to diagnose and treat patients quickly; a critical skill when time is of the essence. Pediatricians in training learn how to treat premature newborns in CESI’s simulated ICU. Using a special infant mannequin, doctors can perfect their skills – learning to treat and help save a tiny life.
Doctors at the Controls of a Robot As robotic surgery becomes more and more common, it’s more important than ever that doctors have a place to hone their skills. Because of that, cen- ters such as CESI will become increas- ingly important.
A PATIENT lies unconscious in a room prepped for emergency care. Doc- tors and nurses work diligently to revive the young victim, a car crash survivor, whose life is on the line. He has several internal injuries and the emergency team is doing everything it can to save him.
This could be a day in the life of the
emergency room at Hartford Hospital, but in reality, these are physicians in training who are inside a simulated emergency room, working on a robot, or Sim-Man. And it is part of a greater push to come up with innovative, new ways to train surgeons.
Right now, residency programs have tomorrow’s doctors shadow today’s. Eventually, new surgeons must perform hands-on operations themselves, so it’s important that they become experts in their field without “practicing” their skills on actual patients.
It is how this simulated emergency room came to be called the “Center for Education, Simulation and In- novation” (CESI). And it is part of one Connecticut hospital’s quest to revamp the future of medical educa- tion.

Coconut Oil's Secret
Half of the fat content in coconut oil is a fat rarely found in nature called lauric acid- a "miracle" ingredient because of its unique health promoting properties. Your body converts lauric acid into monolaurin, which has anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-protozoa properties. Lauric acid is a powerful virus and gram-negative bacteria destroyer, and coconut oil contains the most lauric acid of any substance on earth! Capric acid, another coconut fatty acid present in smaller amounts, has also been added to the list of coconut's antimicrobial components. This is one of the key reasons you should consider consuming coconut oil, because there aren't many sources of monolaurin in our diet. But the health benefits of coconut oil don't stop there. Many swear by it- a couple of scoops a day provides an excellent source of healthy food, good health and beautiful skin and hair. Some take it straight up. Others mix it with balsamic vinegar and pour it on their salad. Still others massage it on their hair for a good hot oil bath or on their skin to protect it from the ravages of time.
This product is amazingly versatile that wonderfully
effective applications just never cease. Talk about versatility in a jar! OK Virgin Coconut Oil is 100% pure, organic and helps provide a livelihood to less-advantaged Filipinos.
Coconut Oil Helps Fight Diabetes Your body
Through CESI, Hartford Hospi- tal is training surgeons the way the Federal Aviation Administration trains pilots: by using realistic, lifelike simu- lators.
Federal laws have – and continue – to limit the total number of hours resi-
Inside CESI, physicians who are just starting out can perfect their surgical skills at the controls of an actual surgical robot, and operate using a video game−like simulation. The simulator assesses the surgeon’s performance, offering individualized feedback and guidance, letting each person know what she or he needs to work on.
Planning for the Future “CESI is part of Hartford Hos-
pital’s efforts to expand its clinical education and training, and is a natural extension of our nationally acclaimed surgery, training and robotic programs,” said Dr. Steven Shichman, urologist at Hartford Hospi- tal. CESI does more than train future doctors. Renowned physicians like Dr. Shichman teach new procedures there, focusing on developing and demon- strating innovative techniques.

directly to your liver to use as energy. This makes coconut oil a powerful source of instant energy to your body, a function usually served in the diet by simple carbohydrates, but does not produce an insulin spike in
bloodstream. In fact, coconut oil added to the diets of diabetics and pre-diabetics has actually been shown to help stabilize weight gain, which can dramatically decrease your likelihood of getting adult onset type-2 Diabetes.
