BodyWorks COVID-19 Ultrasound Simulator installed at the NHS Nightingale Excel Hospital
Intelligent Ultrasound Group, the ultrasound artificial intelligence (AI) software and simulation company has made available its BodyWorks Point-of-Care (PoCUS) Ultrasound Simulator, with its newly released free COVID-19 lung ultrasound module, in the emergency simulation centre that has been set up at the NHS Nightingale Hospital at London’s Excel centre.
To help in the fight against COVID-19 the BodyWorks training simulator combined with our our staff operating on-site at The Nightingale, are helping train clinicians to rapidly acquire and practice lung ultrasound skills.
Lung ultrasound has major utility for the management of respiratory related COVID-19 infection due to its safety, repeatability, absence of radiation, low cost and point of care use. It is also relatively easy to disinfect compared to alternative imaging modalities.
As well as the NHS Nightingale, the company has also remotely upgraded over 30 of its BodyWorks PoCUS training simulators with the new training module in hospitals in the UK, USA, Europe and Asia since the module’s launch last week, with very positive feedback from clinicians.
Hannah Conway, an Advanced Critical Care Practitioner at Glenfield Hospital Leicester, said:
“We’ve had our BodyWorks system upgraded today to include the wonderful new COVID-19 lung ultrasound module which will come in incredibly handy when upskilling our Intensive Care Unit teams in lung ultrasound.”
We hope this initiative will help with the training of healthcare professionals working in the front line of this global emergency.
The BodyWorks COVID-19 module is provided free of charge for all existing and new BodyWorks PoCUS customers and was made available to the market last week.
