Covid-19 ultrasound patient cases released for our simulators

COVID-19 on our simulators

COVID-19 patient cases are now available for our ultrasound trainers within the ScanTrainer CLOUD subscription and BodyWorls Eve PoCUS simulator.

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. Now, making these patient cases available to our simulator community will help with the training of healthcare professionals working in the front line of this global emergency.

Statement

COVID-19 lung module

To help in the fight against this virus our front line doctors and software development team have been working around the clock to develop and release a COVID-19 version of our BodyWorks training simulator to help train clinicians to rapidly acquire and practice lung ultrasound skills. This includes a number of examples of lung ultrasound appearances typical of COVID-19 infection.
