Presentation Abstract:

Preparing clinicians for treating emergency trauma patients can be challenging. Patient manikins are limited in versatility of clinical scenarios and patient anatomies covered, unable to track all trainee actions and require substantial investment. Training with existing immersive VR simulators lacks instrument operation realism and tactile feedback. Both types of simulators do not track instrument operation inside the patient’s body.
Surgical Science’s new TraumaVR simulator overcomes these challenges by combining a manikin and instruments with immersive VR simulation. This provides trainees with an unprecedented training opportunity of psychomotor (motor skills) and cognitive knowledge and skill acquisition in airway management. With the most realistic virtual reality environment, it embeds trainees in the stressful situation, unlike any other simulator.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the value of combining a manikin and instruments with immersive VR simulation, integrating cognitive learning and technical skills.
  2. Explore the versatility of the TraumaVR simulator which incorporates various scenarios, difficulty levels, patient anatomies, injuries & surroundings.
  3. Discover cost-effective solutions for simulators combining manikin with VR, allowing for changeable scenarios with no added people or materials needed.

Jeff Berkley, PhD

Chief Innovation Officer at Surgical Science
Jeff Berkley, PhD, was the Founder and CEO of Mimic Technologies, which was established in 2001 and acquired by Surgical Science in 2021. He is a pioneer of surgical robotic simulation with expertise in force feedback, soft tissue modeling and data science. Jeff is currently focused on far-forward research and development. Using his knowledge of haptics, continuum mechanic-based tissue modeling and artificial intelligence, he’s helping Surgical Science create the next generation of surgical simulators. One focus for his current research is trauma training, which leverages mixed reality. This approach combines immersive VR with tracked physical tools and a mannequin so trainees can feel what they see in simulation. Jeff has served as a reviewer and author for a variety of journals, including IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Modeling, Virtual Reality Medical Imaging, and the Electronic Journal of Haptics Research. He also served as a medical corpsman in the US Naval Reserves where he gained experience as an EMT and field medic.
