CAE Healthcare released what the company says is the first augmented reality childbirth simulator with integrated mother-baby physiology – the CAE LucinaAR with Microsoft HoloLens – at the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) in Los Angeles, California.

With this new simulator, clinical teams and learners will be able to practice emergency labor and delivery maneuvers on a high-fidelity patient manikin while guided by 3D holograms of the baby as it progresses down the birth canal. The first CAE LucinaAR learning module will provide immediate visual and physiological feedback on the effectiveness of evidence-based clinical emergency measures to resolve shoulder dystocia.

“CAE LucinaAR delivers a breakthrough simulation training experience that allows learners to see the anatomy inside the patient simulator,” said Dr. Robert Amyot, President of CAE Healthcare. “We chose Lucina as the first CAE patient simulator for integration with our augmented reality platform because we believe it will have an immediate and powerful impact on the management of shoulder dystocia deliveries and on mother-baby safety.”

The CAE LucinaAR shoulder dystocia module with Microsoft HoloLens will be available for presale during the IMSH conference this week. For more information, visit
