SELECTED EXHIBITS

Caring for Patients in Transit
Sponsored by the Air & Surface Transport Nurses Association, the Transport Nursing area features two emergency transport helicopters (including Boston MedFlight’s new Airbus H145, only the second such vehicle in operation in the United States) and an ambulance from Boston Children’s Hospital Critical Care Transport Team.

Animal-Assisted Therapy
Pawprints, supported by PetSmart Charities, is Boston Children’s Hospital’s animal assisted visitation program. Pawprints provides patients and their families with a healthy diversion from the usual hospital routine and an opportunity for social interaction.

Remote Care in TeleICUs
Experts will be on hand to show attendees through a working teleICU station. Remote monitoring of critically ill patients enables hospitals to increase patient safety and expand nursing staff capabilities.

The “Front Lines” of Healthcare
U.S. Army Nurse Recruiters use a full-size field operating room and field medical unit to simulate the challenges faced on the battlefield or during a disaster. Attendees can watch as U.S. Army physicians, nurses and medics demonstrate lifesaving surgical techniques used in the field.

Patient-Care Innovations
Healthcare and medical device companies, including sector leaders and start-ups, bring interactive demonstrations of the newest equipment, devices and technology to the showroom floor.
