Certified Dialysis Nurse Training AR
Augmented reality was initially conceived as a method to deliver real time information to surgeons during robotic surgery procedures. Probably its most mainstream application to date is the graphic imagery employed during NFL football or MLB baseball games, where first down markers and a virtual strike zone are layered into the scene. Pokemon Go is an online application that has introduced the mainstream to the compelling power of augmented reality in the landscape. By layering real-time, dynamically responsive virtual graphics onto a user's camera view, augmented reality enriches and enhances their experience, and serves to customize this experience for a wide range of applications.
Apple and Android have recently introduced their new AR development platforms, named ARKit and ARCore respectively. This exciting development opens up the opportunity for entrepreneurs and medical professionals to create AR applications that anyone with a smartphone or tablet can access. As a leader in augmented reality, AugmentedReality.health is responding to the advent of ARKit and ARCore with a number of new concepts that focus on the design and development of medical augmented reality applications. Certified Dialysis Nurse Training AR is an augmented reality medical concept AugmentedReality.health believes will provide immediate practical value for nurses, dialysis patients, and the regulatory bodies that oversee the certification process.
A CDN, or Certified Dialysis Nurse, is a specific nursing healthcare practice regulated by the Nephrology Nursing Certification Commission (NNCC). As one of the fastest growing types of specialty training for nurses, certified dialysis nurse training ensures that nurses are familiar with the challenges associated with the ongoing treatment required for dialysis patients. Certified Dialysis Nurse Training AR will use the curricular standards currently used for CDN and place them in an augmented reality context. Nurses can use the application to scan their environment, evaluate its fitness and readiness for the dialysis patient, and review the details of the dialysis equipment. Certified Dialysis Nurse Training AR will use augmented reality to introduce real time operational graphics for instruction, graphic flowchart data, and floating text with reminders and other information layered directly into their smartphone camera view.
Certified Dialysis Nurse Training AR has the potential to be used by the CDN as a significant addition to their certification process, and to establish new standards for the certification of nurses across the country. Current testing involves a multiple choice test; Certified Dialysis Nurse Training AR provides hands-on, real-world training, with detailed real time information delivery. Once established, Certified Dialysis Nurse Training AR could be used as a tool for dialysis nurses in the course of their treatment, and act as a method to coordinate and integrate nephrology wards nationwide.
Hemodialysis training involves proficiency in the maintenance and operation of hemodialysis equipment and the protocols specific to the treatment of a dialysis patient. Augmented reality will allow a nurse to review the machine and obtain real-time information about setting up the venous line, the arterial line, and the saline line. Different protocols may indicate a different order for setting up the lines. Reminders about the color-coded clips facilitate accuracy. The patient end (with the clamp) and the filter or dialyser ends will be captioned with floating text in real time. The pod with its pump segment and the connector that links directly to the machine will be labeled, with operational graphics to indicate how the line is connected. Once the line is connected, real time pressure information will appear as a flowchart graph. Certified Dialysis Nurse Training AR will offer instructions for each line in succession, including the heparin line. Details about the draining bucket and the preferred method of attachment with tips to control and prevent infection, can all be indicated by Certified Dialysis Nurse Training AR in an immersive and interactive augmented reality format.
DDA created AugmentedReality.health as a full-service interactive multimedia company with a specific focus on the design and development of augmented reality applications. DDA has been an innovator in medical software for decades, with extensive experience in virtual medical simulations, or VMS. AugmentedReality.health launched its first augmented reality application in 2009, and garnered Tabby Awards in both 2012 and 2014 for two of its own original tablet applications. By employing a logical and iterative approach to software development, a team of experienced professional designers, programmers, and multimedia specialists apply a comprehensive skill set to handle all aspects of the project in house, without resorting to third-party contractors. Maintaining full control of the project allows AugmentedReality.health to interact closely with their clients during each phase of the process, resulting in a fully integrated and tested end user experience across every platform and every device. Whether the project requires continuing medical education (CME) and other eLearning platforms to videos, animations, mobile apps, and more, AugmentedReality.health is ready to meet and exceed your expectations.
