About this Article

Doctors, nurses and corpsmen at the Naval Hospital Bremerton in Bremerton, Wash., stay sharp by working on dummies. The hospital's 2½-year-old simulation lab recently got three of the most advanced mannequins available, increasing its population to eight. The new mannequins breathe, bleed, talk and mimic other human functions.
