Augmented Reality Triage Simulation

Augmented Reality Triage Simulation

  • Project Title: Augmented Reality Triage Simulation
  • VERG Researchers: Jacob Stuart
  • Description: N/A.
    • Problem: Reducing the rate of over and under triage during mass casualty incidents.
    • Goals: The goal of this project is to help save lives by reducing the rate of over and under triage during a mass casualty incident. Mass casualty incidents can cause a rapid influx of patients in an ER leading to very chaotic situations for nurses. This project has developed a way to try and train these nurses in a similar environment to what they may experience in the field. The simulation consists of triaging 10 patients with various injuries and then afterward you can receive feedback on how you did.
