·虚拟现实培训使导管实验室员工的学习参与度提高了45%,知识保留率提高了72%

·87%的研究表明,受过虚拟现实训练的人在医学实践中具有更高的医学准确性

2020年12月9日,伊利诺伊州阿伯特公园— 雅培 today announced the global release of its first virtual reality-based training program designed to change how interventional cardiologists are trained in using optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging technology. The comprehensive new training program incorporates virtual reality (VR) with traditional training techniques to increase experience 和 expertise in using 雅培’OCT成像并改善需要支架打开动脉阻塞的患者的预后。 

雅培 is expanding its training portfolio to help physicians gain experience with new therapy options, imaging 和 diagnostic tools to help improve patient outcomes. Virtual reality presents a promising approach to OCT training because it enables physicians to have the full experience of being in the catheterization laboratory by putting them in the "driver’s seat"与成像技术。 

OCT is an intracoronary imaging platform offered by 雅培 that helps physicians view 和 assess coronary arteries from  高精度的船只。该视图可以更好地了解患者的性质 ’改善冠状动脉疾病的治疗决策和支架部署质量。最近的数据显示 88%的经皮冠状动脉介入手术(PCI)[2]在OCT工作流程的管理下,与最初的血管造影指导策略相比,医生的决策发生了变化,这表明OCT成像可以帮助推动更好的临床结果。培训对于确保医生和医院能够最佳利用技术来优化患者至关重要’ results. 

"It’s undeniable that OCT imaging technology is unlocking new opportunities to improve outcomes for our patients. 雅培’全新的VR培训计划为我的团队提供了进入导管室并快速有效地了解OCT技术的经验,"塞顿海斯医学中心提升中心的医学博士Vamsi Krishna说。"通过创新的教育计划,OCT VR计划加强了对OCT成像技术的培训。虚拟现实是真正的下一波培训,它将最终改善患者的治疗效果,我’我很高兴成为新计划的一部分。"

虚拟现实消除了心脏病专家改善心血管健康和提高技术能力的障碍

雅培’由Oculus Go支持的新的基于OCT虚拟现实的培训计划™, will dramatically enhance decision-making for physicians who utilize OCT instead of angiography. The training is based on the comprehensive OCT experience 和 input of Dr. Richard A. Shlofmitz, MD, FACC, chairman of cardiology at St. Francis Hospital, The Heart Center, 和 the success he found in translating new training concepts into improvements in patient care. As a result, 雅培 is leveraging technology that has been found to increase training success dramatically. In fact, higher accuracy in medical practice was shown in 87%的学习[3] by those trained with virtual reality versus traditional techniques. According to 雅培 research, virtual reality techniques improved cath lab staff learning engagement by 45%[4] and知识保留率达72%[5]。 

"Abbott’全新的OCT培训使介入心脏病学家能够接受更深入的体验式培训,以鼓励更精确的诊断,而医疗保健系统将通过减少所需的人员培训课程数量来节省成本," said Harvinder Singh, vice president, global commercial operations of 雅培’的血管业务。"此外,虚拟现实培训计划不仅将提高准确性以改善患者的治疗效果,而且还将推动整个行业的发展。’在医疗保健领域采用创新技术。"

"基于虚拟现实的培训计划正在真正改变心脏介入医师学习和采用OCT等新技术的方式,这些技术可以帮助医生在导管实验室做出更好的决策," said Nick West, M.D., divisional vice president, medical affairs, 和 chief medical officer of 雅培’的血管业务。"The program is also furthering 雅培’使用技术和创新来提高患者预后的能力。"
