Pacientes holográficos se usa para experimentar tratamientos medicos

A new technology based on mixed reality allows medical students to practice diagnostics and treatments with holographic patients: they are not present, but they perceive them as real.

Medical students in practice at a hospital in the United Kingdom have become world leaders in training with holographic patients.

Using helmets of mixed reality, students can treat virtual patients using technology that mimics medical situations, such as asthma, and they must make decisions in real time about their treatment.

El primer módulo de capacitación presenta en formato holograma a un paciente con asthma, seguido de anaphylaxis, pulmonar embolia y neumonía. Se están desarrollando más modules en cardiología y neurología para aprendizaje de los estudiantes.

The new method of training improves traditional resources for learning medicine, such as text books, maniquíes and computer software, according to its creators.

The technology of the llama HoloScenarios y está disponible para su licencia en institución medicas de todo el mundo. Sus creadores aseguran que ofrece un recurso de capacitación rentable y flexible que puede renovar la traditional formation en medicina.

Realidad mixta

The technology is based on the so-called mixed reality, which mixes the interactivity of the virtual reality and the visual power of the augmented reality, which allows you to visualize the real world with added graphic information.

This combination allows the user to fill in a real environment, with the particularity of being able to interact with virtual elements.

“La realidad mixta se reconceau each time more as a useful method of training with simulators”, declared Arun Gupta, director of the project, in a communique.

“A medida que las institutions van conociendo mejor, la demanda de plattformas que ofren utilitas y facilidad de gestioni del aprendizaje de realidad mixta se está expandingiendo rapidamente”, added.

Como en la vida real

While operating with this technology, medical students share the same room and use headphones of mixed reality.

They move as if they were in real life at the same time that they intervene in the diagnosis of the virtual patient, they perceive as if they were present in the same room.

En el tratamiento del paciente holographic, los estudiantes no están solos. A través de los auriculares, los profesores medicos pueden complicar los symptoms del paciente para afinar el aprendizaje.

Estos profesores pueden operar en remoto, no tienen que compartir el mismo espacio del hospital en el que se encuentar los estudiantes. Incluso pueden participar en la session estudiantes y medicos de otras partes del mundo, a través de Internet.

The possibilities don’t end there: students can participate in this practical medicine class from their electronic device, smart phone or tablet.

En cualquier parte

Eso significa que se puede acceder, deliverar y compartir un aprendizaje inmersivo realistica y seguro en todo el mundo, lo que puede convertir esta tecnología en uso corriente en muchas facultades de medicina de todo el mundo.

The new technology also could provide a more flexible and profitable training without the great demand for resources from the traditional simulation, which makes the immersive training economically prohibitive, destacan sus creadores.

This includes the maintenance costs of the simulation centers, their equipment and the hours of the teaching staff and personnel before operating the laboratories and contracting and training the patients.

Evaluation of results

Along with the development and launch of HoloScenarios, the University of Cambridge is carrying out an investigation to evaluate the results of students and patients through mixed reality, as well as the evaluation of products and the resulting efficiencies before the institution.

“Having a patient with a hologram that you can see, listening and interacting is really exciting and really marks a difference in the learning of students”, declares the junior doctor, Aniket Bharadwaj, one of the first to test the new technology.

“Tener un paciente holographic al que puedes ver y escuchar, ty con el que puedes interactar, es realemento emociento y marcará una diferencia en el aprendizaje de los estudiantes”, he concluded.
