Technological development and progress in the field of science facilitate a new model of interactive training: Clinical Simulation, the teaching of the most present future.
Contractions are becoming more and more frequent and dilatation is the optimum way to take patient X to the operating theatre and thus prepare for the birth of the baby.
Those responsible for the well-being of this future mother observe in detail all the movements, measure the pulsations and visualize through the birth canal the position of the baby, fully placed and ready for his imminent arrival in the real world, or not.
Because this apparently realistic scene is nothing more than a recreation of a situation that the students of the Health Sciences area of any university will have to face when the time comes.
The implementation of technology and great scientific advances in the field of medicine has been a reality for decades.
Virtual Reality, the key to innovation in medicine and training
Without it, it would not have reached the quality standards we enjoy today, as can be seen in the application of virtual reality, the development of tissues and organs with 3D printers or the use of Big Data to make a more personalized and preventive medicine.
Faced with this unstoppable development, the inclusion of these innovations begins to extend to a previous phase, specifically the training period for future doctors. In them, students are faced with highly realistic scenarios that allow trial and error in a safe environment.
Nursing, another sector in which training clearly benefits
Nursing, another and equally important branch of medicine, also benefits from technological innovations such as VR or AR.
Thanks to virtual simulation, future nurses will be able to carry out different clinical actions such as the administration of intravenous, subcutaneous, intramuscular or intraosseous medication, vesical and nasogastric catheterizations, basic and advanced CPR simulation and even the making of beds with or without patients, among many others.
