    So, Clio: were the 5 errors you made fatal? Or, did your patient in fact survive? And did you get to keep the gall bladder?

      Impressive time Clio! Did anyone faint in the simulated environment??

      Removing this patient’s gall baldder has proved to be a sisyphean task- it gets replaced each time as though nothing has happened! I’m not sure what the poor ‘person’ did to deserve this cruel treatment, but they survive to have the procedure repeated by anyone who’s willing.
      I didn’t hear of anyone fainting… Wouldn’t be surprised though, it’s fairly intense!

    Hi Clio
    In total, we taught 220 members of the public to perform keyhole surgery over 9 days!
    In that time, only one person fainted (when they saw some fake blood) and everyone’s patient survived the operation :)
    We are currently gathering more data on professionals and will let you know the final results…
