M*A*S*H Camp returns for crash course at Cox Monett

Friday, July 14, 2017
One of the activities on Thursday at the M*A*S*H Camp focused on reading an EEG printout of irregular heart activity. Faithlynn Jung, left, from Aurora, and Erin Smith, of Mt. Vernon, viewed a video of a dancer waving arms and bending his legs, simulating the top and bottom portions of the heart in motion, then adding a kick or a wave. Students then looked through different printouts to identify the matching pattern. Shannon Hobson, time critical diagnosis nurse at Cox Monett, led the session. M*A*S*H Camp at Cox Monett was again booked to capacity this year. Murray Bishoff/times-news@monett-times.com

For the third year, the Southwest Missouri Area Health Education Center is holding its annual M*A*S*H (Missouri AHEC Science and Health) day camp to Cox Monett Hospital. The summer day camp is open to students entering grades six through nine who are interested in health careers or who have a particular interest in science. On Wednesday, Meagan Strong, staff educator at Cox Monett, led campers in an exercise in how to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation, using chest compressions and a mouth protector. Emilee Rowe, left, from Branson, took her turn on chest compressions while Michelle James and Rebeque Robinson, right, both from Aurora, waited for their turn. Students from as far away as Lockwood and Nevada participated. Murray Bishoff/times-news@monett-times.com
