A new approach to training in an aero-medical retrieval scenario.

When it comes to learning a life-saving skill or refreshing existing knowledge in an airframe, no product exists like VGH AeroVentilation. Our VR approach to training exploits the capabilities of immersive technology to put the participant in the most convincing aircraft environment without a single drop of AvGas.

Life support knowledge decays in 6 months to a year, skills decay faster.

VR simulation training offers the ability to teach technical competence in operation of equipment as well as clinical competence in the use of equipment whilst integrating elements of crisis resource management.

Data on metrics and learning outcomes can be interrogated provide feedback to learners and trainers that will assist design of future iterations of teaching. Remote access to training and flexible access options including ‘multiplayer’ scenarios are also facilitated by design of VR training as a platform.

Simulation has an established role in medical training however is limited by the need for highly specialized equipment, high time demands for staff trainers and is difficult to deliver in an easily accessible schedule for all staff. Simulation in VR overcomes many of these barriers and has the flexibility to simulate numerous and varied scenarios and outcomes, and to record participant progress and observe learning.


AeroVentilation is currently in development at valley General Hospital with availability 2019.
