ACLS Certification Eyes Virtual Reality

ACLS Certification Eyes Virtual Reality
Posted by Max Gotlieb - Healthcare Reporter

Virtual reality has transcended the notion that it is solely for entertainment purposes. No longer is virtual reality only used in video games and remote laboratories. Recently, the new technology has been adopted for practical uses. The complex computer functions work to simulate and recreate human senses and real situations.  

Obviously, this technology would seem to be perfect for medical applications. Now that virtual reality programs and devices have been matured and fine-tuned, locations such as the Children's Hospital Los Angeles have started to use it. Teaming up with AiSolveBioflight VR, and Oculus, they have constructed a training simulation for emergency pediatric trauma situations to ensure readiness, quick reactions, and proper care.  

Traditional methods of training for medical situational readiness utilize mannequins and other basic equipment, yet virtual reality is more cost effective, reliable, and offers the trainees more realistic scenarios. Programmers have created life-like scenarios with virtual doctors, nurses, and patients responding to any input or action the trainee completes.  

The benefits of training in virtual reality simulations are endless. The environment is realistic, as it mimics the fast-paced, consequence-heavy reality, so that medical professionals are prepared to provide satisfactory care in real life. This will boost decision making and performance under pressure and it will only get more common as the benefits are observed. 

The team at has taken notice of just how revolutionary virtual reality will be for the future of medicine. We seek to ensure that the doctors who we train through online certification and skills testing are prepared to offer the best and most efficient care. We are seeking to incorporate virtual reality training and readiness into our ACLS online courses, whether it be through ACLS certification or ACLS renewal. 

We understand that medicine and patient care is rapidly changing with the advancement of revolutionary technologies; thus, our online certification courses must correspondingly change. We hope to incorporate virtual reality training into our curriculum to give our customers the necessary experience to perform well in both virtual reality simulations and real-life applications.  

Virtual reality holds an exciting new future and we hope to provide the necessary skills to help medical professionals keep up.
