Speed, accuracy and teamwork are critical to providing lifesaving care during a cardiac emergency; training has to be top-quality for every person involved, individually and as a group. Conventional methods such as expensive mannequins cannot simulate the sense of urgency and teamwork of real-life BLS/ACLS – mixed reality adds both an incredible level of realism and collaboration to close critical training gaps. By partnering with GigXR, we’re allowing learners to practice real-time emergency care in the metaverse just as they would as a healthcare professional in the hospital or even as a family member at home.
For a non-medical professional practicing how to handle these scenarios, which can be incredibly intense and shocking, it is going to make life altering differences for those suffering a cardiac emergency outside of a hospital or clinical environment.
