Saint Louis University has unveiled a new lab with robotic patients that train military medics to handle injuries more serious than the medics typically see while working on real patients.

Saint Louis University has opened a new teaching laboratory that will give medical service men and women heading to Iraq and Afghanistan the chance to practice lifesaving procedures on several robotic patients with many injuries.

Students will show how they treat the kinds of injuries typically seen on battlegrounds and at busy trauma hospitals at the grand opening Tuesday of the new Saint Louis University School of Medicine Emergency Medicine Trauma Simulation Lab, the university said Monday.
