by ARandVRTech

Dark Slope, Toronto based immersive learning and spatial software company collaborates with The American College of Chest Physicians for intubation techniques training in virtual reality.

Virtual reality is to play a crucial role in healthcare sector in coming years. Simulating real life conditions in a virtual reality environment will lead to accurate skill based training. This training will be offered via Involve XR, Dark Slope’s immersive learning platform. With use of VR headsets, participants will be able to collaborate with other participants and instructors remotely.

“COVID-19 has underlined the need to train pulmonary and critical care workers effectively on proper intubation techniques,” said Robert Musacchio, CEO and Executive Vice President of CHEST. “VR allows trainees to practice a range of patient scenarios, visualize aerosolization and train without the need to travel to a simulation center or conference. We see virtual simulation as a key pillar of the future of health care training for our more than 20,000 members and for the broader domestic and international clinical community.”

“Dark Slope’s approach to virtual learning is to partner with subject matter experts like CHEST to develop science-backed and accredited training programs that can be built once and then made available to learners globally,” said Raja Khanna, CEO of Dark Slope. “Spatial skills are best learned through practice and live simulation training, both of which are enabled in virtual and augmented reality by our Involve XR platform.”
