What Will Trainees Experience in the Virtual Reality Training Program?According to a press release sent to ARPost, the Canadian developer company will use the CHEST curriculum to create the VR intubation training program. Trainees will be able to access it via Dark Slope ’s proprietary immersive learning platform, Involve XR.
Thus, the trainees will enter a virtual ICU environment and interact in a life-like dynamic teamwork to perform intubation on patients. Of course, team members will be able to collaborate remotely. Also, they will receive real-time guidance and advice from instructors, in order to improve their technique.
Virtual Reality Training – an Effective Solution for This PeriodDark Slope is a firm believer in teaching through direct, immersive experiences. Their current list of clients and partners include names such as AT&T, Magic Leap, Intel, Epic Games, Nickelodeon, and Ogilvy.Their immersive learning platform, Involve XR is already used for training licensed healthcare personnel and first responders, skilled labor employees working in field service and operations, as well as management staff for developing soft skills.
For Robert Musacchio, CEO and EVP of CHEST, virtual reality training on the Involve XR platform is the most efficient solution for the present circumstances.
Healthcare Is Big on Virtual Reality. From diagnostics to treatment to practicing difficult surgical procedures, healthcare institutions are incorporating virtual reality into many facets of the industry. By combining diagnostic images from CAT scans and ultrasounds, healthcare professionals are able to use software to create 3D virtual models to help surgeons decide the best locations for surgical incisions and prepare for surgery.
“COVID-19 has underlined the need to train pulmonary and critical care workers effectively on proper intubation techniques. VR allows trainees to practice a range of patient scenarios, visualize aerosolization and train without the need to travel to a simulation center or conference,” he stated in the press release.
Simulation Training Increases Skill Learning and Retention RateFor the CEO of Dark Slope, Raja Khanna, virtual reality training is the solution to reaching a uniform level of skill for the global workforce. Even when they do not meet in person, trainees can still learn together and get hands-on practice, under the supervision of instructors.
“Dark Slope’s approach to virtual learning is to partner with subject matter experts like CHEST to develop science-backed and accredited training programs that can be built once and then made available to learners globally,” Khanna explained in the press release. “Spatial skills are best learned through practice and live simulation training, both of which are enabled in virtual and augmented reality by our Involve XR platform”.
