VR is Revolutionizing Trauma Training at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles
AiSolve, the UK-based specialist in artificial intelligence (AI) powered virtual reality (VR), Bioflight VR, the Hollywood-based VFX specialist, and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles have collaborated to deliver breakthrough intelligent and responsive VR training for emergency pediatric trauma situations.
“The aim of this is to prepare medical staff with the most realistic environment possible so that they experience the fast-moving, life-and-death, decision-making process multiple times and create strategies to make fast and accurate decisions for when children’s lives are in the balance. Through our collaboration with Oculus, Facebook and BioflightVR, we feel we’ve created the most realistic and immersive educational tool for healthcare providers that’s ever been developed.”– Devi Kolli, CEO of AiSolve
“The true promise of VR is to solve problems, share knowledge and save lives and this Children’s Hospital Los Angeles pilot will deliver on all three. AiSolve’s participation was pivotal and its VR Sims platform was crucial to the success of the pilot.”– Shauna Heller, Executive Director
“On average we need one hour to prepare a 30 minute, mannequin-based simulation, and another 30 minutes to clean up. Our organisation pays around $430,000 annually to train staff on mannequins, despite it being very time consuming as it’s the only best simulated training solution up until now. Experiential learning is among the best way to practice paediatric emergencies. We had a rather aggressive timetable and the VR simulation literally improved week by week. VR allows for the first-time experiential learning where not all the people are in the same room at the same time. It is far more flexible and students can perform the training far more often.”– Dr. Todd Chang of the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles
