“Considering advances in medical education and training internationally, the use of VR in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) instruction and cardiac learning is noteworthy. The overseas method combines VR technology with real mannequins which effectively enhances CPR training. Given this, it is very important for us to adopt this approach in order to adequately train future doctors and medical specialists. Familiarizing them with realistic scenarios of relevant cases accessed virtually enables them to make accurate clinical decisions.”

Learning CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) is very important because it can save the life of someone who has a cardiac arrest. However, CPR learning which is only based on traditional theory and practicum has limitations in providing in-depth and realistic learning experiences. In addition, traditional practicums can usually only be carried out in certain environments, so that students do not get a holistic learning experience.
Augmented Reality (AR) technology can help students learn CPR Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) better because it can provide a more interactive and realistic learning experience. In the case of CPR, accurate visualization is essential because the actions taken must be performed quickly and precisely. With AR, students can see and analyze CPR diagrams in three dimensions, and can deal with real situations.
AR can also provide real-time feedback for actions taken by students, so they can correct mistakes and improve their skills in performing CPR. This can help ensure that students have the necessary skills to deal with urgent medical situations and avoid mistakes that can cause fatal harm to patients. AR can be a very useful tool in CPR learning as it provides a better learning experience and enhances students’ skills in dealing with urgent medical situations.
