LabTutor for Nursing -- A New Tool for Anatomy & Physiology Laboratories

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwire - August 27, 2009) - ADInstruments is helping nursing students bridge the gap between the classroom and hospital ward with the latest version of LabTutor and three Nursing Experiment Collections. LabTutor 3.0 supports 19 new experiments (featuring over 100 exercises including patient case studies) that illustrate in practical terms the biological theory taught in nursing anatomy and physiology classrooms. The Nursing experiments involve students observing, recording and analyzing the physiology of their own bodies.

LabTutor breaks each experiment into a series of exercises and automatically adjusts the PowerLab hardware settings to optimize the signal being recorded. This makes it possible for students to perform experiments with minimal supervision. Each LabTutor Nursing experiment includes patient case studies and a report page covering scientific concepts and its clinical implications that can be completed and submitted electronically.

LabTutor Nursing experiments are available in three collections to suit different undergraduate/postgraduate laboratories. The basic Nursing Collection features ten commonly performed experiments including blood pressure, breathing and ECG. For institutions with wet labs, an alternative Nursing (with Dissection) Collection is available with anatomy dissection exercises. The Advanced Nursing Collection contains several patient cases and data for comparative analyses. Educators can customize or create new LabTutor experiments to suit their classroom using the LabAuthor software.

PowerLab Teaching Systems are supplied with LabTutor software, hardware, transducers and accessories for students to complete a wide range of experiments.
