CAE Healthcare has released its first training applications for Microsoft HoloLens 2, which will integrate holographic, modeled physiology into its patient simulators. The mixed reality applications will accelerate learning by displaying 3D, interactive cardiac, respiratory and circulatory systems that will allow learners to envision human anatomy.

Built to run on Microsoft’s recently released HoloLens 2, the next generation of its wearable holographic computer, CAE augmented reality applications will offer standalone, virtual patients for pre-briefing or interdisciplinary team training with CAE Healthcare patient simulators. HoloLens 2 enables instinctual interactions using AI to track people’s hand motions and eye gaze so that they can perceive a hologram floating in front of them and reach out to resize it or reposition it. As a result, HoloLens applications help people to interact with people, places, and things in natural ways. CAE AresAR, for example, will enable learners to interact in six realistic emergency scenarios: Myocardial Infarction; Pulmonary Embolism; Tension Pneumothorax with Internal Bleeding; Ischemic Cerebral Vascular Accident (CVA) or Stroke; Closed Head Injury; and Sepsis.

CAE Healthcare’s mission is to make healthcare safer by improving patient safety and outcomes. The company has achieved a number of “firsts” in simulation technology, such as the first ultrasound and childbirth applications for HoloLens 1, and the award-winning Anesthesia SimSTAT, a screen-based simulation platform for Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesia (MOCA). Anesthesia SimSTAT is hosted and managed on the Microsoft Azure platform.
