How Augmented Reality Helps Train Ultrasound Technicians

But even while still learning and training, up-and-coming medical professionals, especially ultrasound technicians, will be able to improve their skills. AR will allow them to examine 3D anatomy, which will make the learning process easier. And by practicing scanning holographic organs, they will be able to observe in real-time and understand how ultrasound beams work to generate an ultrasound image.

Clinical Tool Identifies A Pregnant Patient In Danger: Is It Helpful For EMS?

The nation's Emergency Medical System (EMS) infrastructure occupies a vital role in society where public health, public safety and individual patient needs converge.  In light of concerning maternal outcomes the EMS professional can benefit from greater awareness of issues in this special population. In a prior post the rising maternal mortality trend in the USA was explored and though current campaigns at reversing this troublesome trend are not directed at pre-hospital providers there may be a missed opportunity in not doing so.  

A vital tool called the Maternal Early Warning Signs (MEWS) is an evidence-based tool that has been used with success in some states to improve maternal outcomes.

A New Dawn of Simulation Captures the Imagination of Adult Learners & Better Prepares Trainees for Patient Care.

Training simulations have been used by various industries including the military, entertainment, aviation, and medicine. Aviation was the leading industry of modern simulators. In 1929, Edwin Link developed the first Link Trainer, or the “Blue Box”, for aviation training. The Link Trainer had a cockpit, controls, and motions simulating that of a real airplane. In 1934 pilots used the Link Trainer for flight simulations after twelve Army Air Corp pilots were killed in fewer than 3 months trying to deliver air mail. Army Air Corp bought six Link Trainers in order for pilots to become familiar with airplane controls and flying conditions. The Link Trainers gained popularity during World War II, when more than 10,000 Trainers were sold to combatant nations. Blue Boxes trained more than 500,000 US pilots. Today, flight simulators with advanced software and computer screens have become required components in aviation pilot training in the US.
