As elective surgeries begin to reopen, it’s time to remind your residents and surgeons how important ‘warming up’ can be for patient safety.
This study, Warm-up in a VR Environment Improves Performance in the Operating Room , shows how warming up on VR simulators can have significant beneficial impacts in the OR, with the potential to:
- Improve procedural outcomes
- Increase patient safety
- Make better use of OR resources
The warm up can be short and easy to perform, perfect to fit into a busy day, in a busy surgical department.
So why not get your residents and surgeons back up to speed by virtual training on a LapSim simulator the most proven simulator on the market.
Dr. Ahlberg et al  successfully integrated laparoscopic VR simulation training and reduced resident errors in the OR by 40%.
Read the studies and see how LapSim simulation training can help your residents and surgeons.
