pioneering company in virtual reality development. Other terminology used to describe this technology includes artificial reality, virtual environments, cyberspace, visually coupled systems, telepresence and virtual presence. The multiplicity of different terms to describe this concept suggests that a single concise definition is difficult to obtain. Definitions which have been proposed include: virtual reality is an advanced human–computer interface that simulates a realistic environment and…

The state of the art in VR-based telemedicine applications is described, which includes virtual reality used in remote or augmented surgery as well as surgical training, which are critically dependent on eye-hand coordination.

A Simulator for Regional Anesthesia Training

The objective of the present work was the modeling of a computer based simulator for the training of interns in regional anesthesia with focus on epidural and spinal anesthesia and the implementation of the initial and monitoring steps.

Building the Computational Virtual Reality Environment for Anaesthetists' Training and Practice

A computational virtual reality environment to improve visualisation, understanding and prediction of the physical world and to guide action is built and a novel musical notes based anesthetic simulator is proposed to identify the abnormality and visualize the online medical time series.

Virtual, Augmented, and Alternate Reality in Medical Education: Socially Distanced but Fully Immersed

The evidence base for use of emerging technologies in SBE is explored as well as the strengths and limitations of each modality in a variety of settings, including differences in equipment requirements, cost, and scalability.

Basic Issues in the Application of Virtual Reality for the Assessment and Rehabilitation of Cognitive Impairments and Functional Disabilities

Several basic issues need to be considered for the rational and measured development of VR applications for the study, assessment, and rehabilitation of cognitive impairments and functional disabilities.

Building Computational Virtual Reality Environment for Anesthesia

A Computational Virtual Reality Environment for Anesthesia (CVREA), which can significantly improve the training and learning performance of trainee anaesthetists in an efficient way is proposed, which involves virtual reality, big data, data mining and machine learning techniques.

The Past, Present, and Future of Virtual Reality in Higher Education

This chapter focuses on how Virtual Reality (VR) can be used to educate students in a variety of disciplines and provides suggestions for future research and application of VR both inside and outside of the classroom.

Simulation and virtual reality in surgical education: real or unreal?

Ongoing improvements in this technology suggest an important future role for virtual reality and simulation in surgical education and training.



A conceptual virtual reality model

A three-tiered definition of VR is developed that addresses respectively what VR is, how it is accomplished, and its effect/spl minus/both of VR on the participant and of the participant on the environment.

The Anesthesia Simulator-Recorder: a device to train and evaluate anesthesiologists' responses to critical incidents.

The Anesthesia Simulator-Recorder was appraised as an excellent training device because it provides the ability to repeatedly practice the management of critical incidents and was judged to be a good evaluation device.

The Leiden anaesthesia simulator.

An anaesthesia simulator capable of simulating all possible situations during anaesthesia, currently being used for teaching and training of anaesthetists, trainees and anaesthesia personnel and for research.

Does training on an anaesthesia simulator lead to improvement in performance?

It is concluded that training on an anaesthesia simulator does improve the performance of anaesthetists in dealing with emergencies during anaesthesia.

Anesthesiologists' management of simulated critical incidents.

The time since the last ACLS training was found to be an important predictor of correct management of simulated cardiac arrest and subjects that gathered more information during simulated anaphylaxis made the correct diagnosis more often and made fewer treatment errors.

Anesthesia crisis resource management training: teaching anesthesiologists to handle critical incidents.

The authors have developed a course in Anesthesia Crisis Resource Management analogous to courses in Crew (Cock-pit) Resource Management (CRM) conducted in commercial and military aviation, and believe that ACRM training should become a regular part of the initial and continuing education of anesthesiologists.
