Introduction to Brochoscopy (Basic Training)

Bronchoscopy courses 1.1

Brief

This course permits trainees to acquire theoretical and technical skills through an interactive & immersive educational activity through recreation of clinical experience with the help of high fidelity virtual reality Bronchoscopic simulator without exposing patients to the associated risks. It helps the trainees develop muscle memory and hand-eye co-ordination.

These simulators incorporate a realistic simulation environment of virtual patients modeled on real cases with realistic responses including vital signs and potential complications such as hypoxia and hypotension, as well as simulation of awake sedation, topical anaesthesia, anatomy atlas, 3-D orientation, performance metrics, retrospective evaluation of performance and tutorials.

With the help of this course trainees gain new skills, knowledge in the safe environment of clinical skills laboratory including experience of maneuvering of the bronchoscope, learning bronchial anatomy using up-to-date graphic technology and physiological responses, and the psychomotor skills necessary to become competent in performing fiberoptic bronchoscopy which optimizes the learning curve of the trainee.
