Advocate Christ Medical Center links a conference center to its cardiac operating room by Wendy L. Ellis, AV Technology Magazine Everyone is listening for a heartbeat. They are listening in the operating room, in the auditorium, in the lunchroom. They are listening miles away in the museum and in high school classrooms across North America. They are all listening for the same heartbeat. As the skilled hands of a cardiac surgeon bring the live videoconference of open heart surgery to a close, everyone is waiting for the familiar beep-beep-beep of the monitor that means the heart is beating on its own again.

Trinity Christian College installs AV systems

For small private colleges with big dreams, taking that first unfamiliar step into the world of audio/visual technology can be a leap of faith. At Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, Illinois, that leap came with the construction of a brand new building, the Heritage Science Center, in 2002. Although computers have been a staple on the campus for years, science instructors were still sharing roll-around audio-visual carts as they taught in two science labs on the second floor of the classroom building. With the construction of the new $8 million science center and some timely intervention by the people at Media Resources, students now enjoy a sleek, modern, technologically-smooth environment that puts everything they need at their fingertips.

Smart System Programming brings Security to Classrooms

Any absent minded professor who puts the remote in his pocket and walks out of one of the library class rooms at Lake Forest College won't get far with his forgotten memento. Just seconds after the AMX Modero 7500 touch panel leaves the room, an email message pops up on the computer of Academic Technologist Karen Blocker. "The wireless panel has gone off line." A similar message speeds its way to Brian Maksa at Media Resources Inc., of Lisle, IL, and before long, one of the two has tracked down the errant professor and retrieved the touchpad.

Museum/Hospital Partnership takes Health Education to a New Level

Have you ever wished you could see what goes on inside an operating room? You can, at least if you're a student participating in the Museum of Science and Industry's Live… from the Heart program. According to Elory Rozner, K-12 and E-Learning Manager for the Chicago-based museum, the program provides a "very dramatic and very moving" look into an operating room where open-heart surgery is taking place. Connected via videoconferencing equipment, students can watch a coronary bypass procedure live and ask questions of surgeons and nurses as they work.
