NYUVA PoCUS training
Having these COVID-19 specific cases available on the BodyWorks Eve ultrasound simulator in the early days of the pandemic has had a significant effect on our ability to quickly train clinicians on lung ultrasound in order to provide better patient care.

Intelligent Ultrasound Group, the ultrasound artificial intelligence (AI) software and simulation company, announces it has produced a case study based on feedback from the Veteran’s Administration NY Harbor Healthcare Simulation Center in New York, USA. New York is currently the epicentre of the US pandemic and, facing a mounting number of patients, the centre has recently introduced critical care simulation based training sessions utilising the BodyWorks Point-of-Care (PoCUS) Ultrasound Simulator with the newly installed COVID-19 lung module. These sessions have prepared non critical care health care professionals including surgery, anaesthesiology, paediatrics and acute care nurse practitioners for roles as bedside ICU providers. The simulation sessions have been made available to all providers scheduled to work in the rapidly expanding COVID-19 intensive care units.

 

Dr Brian Kaufman, Professor of Anesthesiology, Medicine, Neurology and Neurosurgery at NYU Grossman School of Medicine and Director of the simulation laboratory at VA NY Harbor Healthcare in Manhattan said: “As all the hospitals in the NYU Langone Health system and major affiliates including the Manhattan campus of the NY Harbor Healthcare Center and Bellevue Hospital were being deluged with COVID-19 patients requiring ICU admission and care, there was an overwhelming need for rapid expansion of ICU beds, and providers to care for these patients. These needs were exacerbated when some of our usual ICU clinical providers needed to be removed from the workforce due to the need to quarantine. Having these COVID-19 specific cases available on the BodyWorks Eve ultrasound simulator in the early days of the pandemic has had a significant effect on our ability to quickly train clinicians on lung ultrasound in order to provide better patient care.”
