Emergency Scenarios for All Relevant Complications
Training in virtual reality offers the chance to exercise not only general interventions but also very special cases and complications.
Emergency scenarios can either be triggered by an action of the trainee or remotely by the trainer on the controlling terminal. VirtaMed HystSim™ is able to simulate all relevant complications in hysteroscopy.
Establishing and maintaining clear view is an essential challenge in hysteroscopic surgery.
Perforation of the uterine cavity is one of the most common complications in hysteroscopy.
VirtaMed HystSim™ records dozens of important parameters during each virtual reality intervention. This allows to exactly measure the amount of fluid loss.
Objective Feedback for Best Learning Results
For the structured learning of surgical skills, objective feedback is crucial. Virtual reality simulators can be used for the assessment of surgical skills and have been reported to be superior to traditional methods such as direct observation, animal models, videotapes, and procedure logs in terms of reliability and validity.
The objective feedback including scores, images and movies is archived and therefore always accessible to both trainee and trainer.
