Rising Australian medical VR company, Vantari VR, has partnered with internationally-renowned cardiologist, Associate Clinical Professor Dr. Martin Brown, to launch the world’s first virtual right heart catheter course.
The rollout of the programme, set to revolutionise the way clinicians receive training, has also been backed by global pharmaceutical company, Janssen Pharmaceuticals.
The right heart catheter training programme was originally developed in 2017 and was approved for training by the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand. Initially the training was to be completed in a simulation laboratory using mannequins and was set to be rolled out nationally, however Covid-19 restrictions meant the programme was put on hold.
Now, thanks to Vantari’s unique ‘flight-simulator’-style technology, this will be a worldwide first in training doctors to perform this procedure in the virtual space.
As far as I am aware, this will be a worldwide first in training doctors to perform this procedure in the virtual space. I am excited to develop an innovative training program with new technology in this specific area and showcase the possibilities to the medical fraternity,” said A/Prof Brown.
Revolutionising the way doctors receive on-the-job training through its unique ‘flight-simulator’-style technology, Vantari VR is setting a new gold standard for medical training in order to produce the best doctors, reduce medical error and deliver the best outcomes for patients.
Vantari VR Co-Founders and Co-CEOs, Dr. Nishanth Krishnananthan and Dr. Vijay Paul are looking forward to seeing the virtual training platform used in a world-first course.
