MedCognition, a Texas-based company providing augmented reality medical education training, has released a series of trauma-focused medical simulation modules for PerSim(R), its augmented reality (AR) medical simulation system.

PerSim uses Microsoft HoloLens mixed reality to project life-like holographic patients into actual environments. PerSim allows participants to view realistic patient simulations for a variety of clinical presentations. It is used by EMS educators, paramedic field training officers, medical simulation directors, and Emergency Medicine residency program directors.

These trauma simulation modules for PerSim deliver expanded training scenarios to healthcare's frontline covering injuries such as limb amputation, burns, open pneumothorax, and other significant injuries seen in both major and minor trauma emergencies. This type of experiential learning strengthens critical thinking and enhances the decision-making and assessment skills of trainees.
