Using the defibrillator


When patients suffered from heart failure in Trauma Center: Under the Knife players would rub some antibiotic gel over the heart and “massage” it by following a bar up and down. Trauma Center: Second Opinion gives you the right tool for the job, a defibrillator. The nunchuck acts as one paddle and the remote is the other. By holding down buttons on the controllers and placing the paddles you can revive a patient from heart failure.


Repairing broken bones


Unlike the other operations, repairing fractures doesn’t require extra tools, it requires wit. Fixing broken bones are played out in a puzzle mini game where you reassemble the fracture by placing pieces of bone in order.
