Linkfest - Like a Surgeon Edition


Video games have been getting a lot of love in the medical department recently. Being a virtual scalpel aficionado myself (of course Trauma Center's just like the real thing!), it makes my internal organs feel all warm and squishy when I read these articles:

"America's Army" Player Uses In-Game Medic Training Help Save Life
A man named Paxton Galvanek helped rescue two victims of a car crash with the medical training he learned from the PC game America's Army. It might be a good idea to give this game to your best PC-gaming buddy before your next road trip.

Study Finds Wii Beneficial for Surgeons
A recent study has shown that surgeons perform better on performing virtual surgical procedures after training on a program designed for the Wii. Maybe they should give Mario Galaxy's balance puzzles a try too?

Trauma Center Wii Accessory Kit
Many thanks to Gay Gamer for pointing out this (dare I say?) gut-busting accessory for the Wii-mote.

Check 'em out, and have a slice-happy weekend!
