Acadicus Update: New VR Medical Simulations, Live Patients

Sim labs may be closed, but our VR sim lab remains open 24/7 and is accessible from home.  If you have an Oculus Rift, there’s a lot to explore in this major Acadicus update. 

Every client partnership introduces new content that greatly enriches Acadicus for everyone using it.  We hope you will consider partnering with us to create your next VR simulation project.   

New VR Content to Explore

After installing and launching Acadicus, these simulations can be accessed from the Acadicus Commons. 

ECG lead placement

We’ve expanded the functionality of our interactive asset class and shared a preliminary demo of a 12 lead ECG lead placement simulation that features this capability.

Electrophysiology of the Heart

Dr. Nick Slamon uses a vitals monitor and animated heart to describe electrophysiology of the human heart in a 3D spatial recording.  

Post-Intubation Desaturation

Dr. Nick Slamon discusses the DOPE mnemonic for post-intubation desaturation.  This simulation is staged in the ICU and features a ventilated pediatric patient used in Dr. Slamon’s 3D spatial recording in this demonstration.

Live Patient Interactions

Instructors or standardized patient actors can now play the role of the patient in VR, manipulating their animations, vital signs, and other environmental variables. Create a lifelike and immersive learning experience and experiment with the feature in our demo.

Cardiac Anatomy

Dr. Nick Slamon discusses anatomy of the human heart.
