“What better way to learn coronary angiography and PCI than with the Mentice simulator”....
Recently, VP visited Bradford Royal Infirmary to give four Cardiology Registrars and a group of dedicated cath lab AHPs an opportunity to learn and improve on their practical skills and proficiencies using VP's hands-on case simulator hardware, Mentice. Everyone in attendance had an opportunity to get involved with the cases, as well as being able to ask questions or test their abilities in a safe-yet-realistic cath lab environment.
One of the attending registrars commented “I am quite a beginner in angio(graphy), but found the simulator training fairly close to real time. It gives me confidence for engaging coronaries after practising in a safe environment”.
VP will be back at Bradford to deliver a further session of sim-based training, include overcoming intraoperative complications such as perforations and cardiac arrests.
