Many people are trained in Basic Life Support techniques, such as CPR, which are designed to maintain life until help is available. Hospital clinicians are trained in Advanced Life Support (ALS) techniques, which maintain life and also identify and resolve the cause of the cardiac arrest, so that a normal rhythm is restored.
Cardiac arrests don’t happen very often but are life or death events. Because the standard of care in hospitals is constantly improving, cardiac arrests are occurring less often. As a result, hospital clinicians are receiving less exposure to managing cardiac arrests but are still required to perform effectively as a team when they do occur.
The ALS-SimVR application is designed to provide leader training for clinicians managing a patient in a cardiac arrest., which allows a clinician to take the headset home and practice managing a patient in a cardiac arrest in the location and time of their choosing.
They do this by directing a virtual team in all the tasks required of a team managing a patient in this state. Rhythm interpretation, drug doses, pathology results, ABG results are all randomised to increase replicability for the user. Key skills of ALS management are also available as skills trainers within the application including handover practice, defibrillation, cardioversion and pacing and more in development.
