Combat Skills Decay. Improve Cardiac Arrest Survival Rates.
With in-hospital cardiac arrest survival rates averaging 26%, ACLS refresher training is a must. The problem? It can be difficult and expensive to scale across an entire healthcare system. You need an impactful solution that requires less equipment and overhead. It’s here. Introducing ACLS Virtual Reality Simulation.
ImmersivePlaces the learner in the role of the team lead and recreates the stress and team dynamics of a mega code situation.
ScalableProvide standardized practice, assessment and skills validation across an entire health care network without travel or facilitator overhead.
Self-DirectedCan be done at the convenience of the learner, from anywhere, with any Windows-based headset.
Developed in partnership with hospitals, the simulation includes all of the AHA core rhythms including ROSC.
Comparable to eLearning and 83% less than high-fidelity mannequin simulations.
Tracks and assesses core competencies and provides learner readiness reports to identify skills gaps across your organization.
Health Scholars’ virtual reality training prevents ACLS skills decay by enabling learners to physically engage in code situations at an appropriate frequency. It’s realistic, clinically accurate and can be completed at the convenience of the learner.
How ACLS Virtual Reality Works
Clinicians can use the CE-accredited VR training as a pre-learning application before physical simulation or as supplemental training to validate and refresh ACLS competencies. Designed in accordance with AHA guidelines to complement AHA’s HeartCode® training and RQI program, it leverages state-of-the-art voice recognition and motion capture technologies to deliver an immersive experience.
Learners play the role of the team lead running the mega code and are provided the core ACLS rhythms across stable, unstable and cardiac-arrest scenarios. They identify rhythms in the context of the patient’s stability and direct virtual team members to shock, give meds, and/or perform CPR as necessary. It helps learners:
- Address team members by name and make eye contact
- Practice situational awareness of team-member fatigue and task performance
- Engage closed-loop communications
- Reflect on areas of improvement with an in-app debrief
