About the Course
This experiential VR training and assessment is designed to help learners acquire the necessary skills to perform an endotracheal intubation.
Endotracheal (ET) intubation is a common procedure performed before surgery or as an emergency measure to help secure a patient’s airway. In either case, it is a delicate process that involves passing a tube into a person’s trachea, and requires well-trained hands to perform the process swiftly and safely, especially in emergencies if a patient’s condition is deteriorating rapidly.
This interactive endotracheal intubation VR course takes place in a realistic, zero-risk virtual environment where learners can use physics-based interactions to practice the procedure on a virtual patient. In training mode, the step-by-step guides enable a scaffolded learning experience, while the assessment mode provides the user with immediate feedback as mistakes are made. The user can only pass the assessment if the entire procedure is performed in the correct sequence without mistakes. Learner performance can be tracked through an advanced analytics portal, empowering administrators to manage compliance, identify areas for improvement, and gain a deeper understanding of their learners.
- Ability to prepare the patient for an endotracheal intubation
- Ability to perform an endotracheal intubation
- Understanding the key equipment and tools required
To ensure a successful and smooth procedure, preparation must be fool-proof and every step should be performed meticulously. Patient preparation for an endotracheal intubation procedure involves steps like confirming the identity of the patient, inserting an oropharyngeal airway, premedication and more.
The process of endotracheal intubation involves inserting the laryngoscope, followed by the endotracheal tube and associated steps to successfully secure a patient’s airway. It is imperative to ensure the correct placement of the tube in the trachea and that each step is meticulously followed.
