VR triage training for mass casualty incidents (MCI), a cooperation with the University Medical Center Hamburg (UKE)
Preparing and training for mass casualty incidents (MCI) in the context of a university medical education is difficult for obvious reasons. This BA thesis develops a VR training software for simulating such a catastrophic event. We developed the concept as a cooperation between the CSTI and the Anaesthesiology and Intensive-care Department of the University Medical Center Hamburg (UKE).
Our VR training software simulates a realistic MCI, allowing students to immerse in the virtual environment of a subway station. There the students can move around freely, interact with the casualties, screen them and apply the triage criteria they trained for. With the help of a triage chart, they can assign the casualties to different categories, according to the chosen requirements.
