Vascular catheterisation through simulated learning

Vascular catheterisation through simulated learning. As flight simulators enable pilots to gain and maintain their skills for aviation, the CATHI (catheter instruction system) supports clinical skills development for vascular interventions. Complementing traditional education, the simulator uses computed demonstration from real anatomies to enable doctors to practise vascular techniques. There is no real patient, thus learning is the unique focus for the clinician. The software, which is based on real vessel geometry acquired from routine angiographic films, allows for training of cases of various complexities. Simulated treatments can be performed using one or two wires. All used instruments (guidewires and balloons) can be manipulated fully independently from each other. The X-ray system is controlled by device operators; corresponding X-ray projections are generated without dose problem. The simulation environment is as close as possible to the patient environment. The basic version has a monoplane Xray device. It operates two monitors, one working monitor for fluoroscopic images and one monitor for recorded sequences and screen shots. The package consists of a simulation package, tracking unit, flow box, control panel, foot pedal, dummy and the computer hardware. An extended version is also available, offering in addition a biplane X-ray unit and adjusted software and hardware. The system will combine with other angiographic devices and full-scale simulators thereby facilitating training for dedicated emergency case procedures (e.g. defibrillation, intubation, or injection of pharmaceuticals).Vascular catheterisation through simulated learning
