19th Ave New York, NY 95822, USA

We are on the InterSystems Global Summit 5th floor - FHIR Incubator Startups

THE VIRTUAL ICU IS DESIGNED FOR

  • Medical students and graduates within their pre and post gradual training
  • Students of secondary medical schools to gain practical skills
  • Hospitals to continuously maintain skills and develop competencies of their health care staff, simulating emergency situations, improving the efficiency of new teams, mitigation human errors and risks for patients
  • Rescuers in pre-hospitalization emergency care for top quality training in intensive medicine practices
  • Manufacturers of health care equipment for training users more effectively, extended service and customer support, direct experience of potential clients with their products
  • VR ICU is currently tested in hospitals České Budějovice, MUNI SIMU Brno, Mladá Boleslav, Jindřichův Hradec, Tábor, Ostrava, Hradec Králové and we cooperate with manufacturers B.Braun, Fresenius, Hamilton a Linet.

VR JIP (ICU) –virtual training site for health care staff

Effect of the training in virtual reality

Virtual reality brings an experience where the user is fully present in the virtual world and can interact with it.

The effectiveness of the learning process is determined by two facts:

  1. Human brains learn from experience and repetition
  2. Human brains can’t distinguish between virtual and real situations

It means that anything you can do in a virtual environment gives you an identical experience the same as in the real world.

This ensures you get the practical skills faster and can retain them longer, thus improving your self-confidence in executing the given tasks in the future.

• Accelerates the learning process

• Deepens practical skills 

• Improves self-confidence in practice

• Reduces risk for the patient due to improper procedures

• Accelerates competent decision making in emergencies

• Enables substitutability of expert personnel

• Maintains the required level of skills in less frequently applied procedures

The purpose is to develop the right habits in setting up and operating health care devices and to practice actions in emergency situations that may occur during interactions with patients

How does it work?

After putting on the virtual reality goggles the user appears in a software developed environment simulating a real intensive medical care unit. The experience starts with the user controlling/ setting up the devices under defined conditions. The scenarios are developed in cooperation with experienced people. The users can choose from several modes from training with full help to testing individual work.. The users can also choose the time and place of their training sessions as they wish. They need a space of 2.5 x 2.5 m. They are taken to the training environment as soon as they put on the VR headset. The user can train alone or under supervision. The supervisor may be connected remotely.

Future: Integration of AI – artificial intelligence to develop scenarios with various patient responses and to assess behaviour of training participants
