It’s another busy Saturday at the grocery store. As you make your way to the frozen food section, you pass an overly crowded food kiosk serving promotional samples. The loud and eager crowd, suddenly fall silent as a young man falls to the floor, struggling to breathe. You approach the victim and jump in to offer assistance; the companion explains he has a peanut allergy.
Moving quickly, you begin chest compressions, when a pop-up appears “You have failed, please restart simulation”. You select the exit at the top right corner of the pop-up; launching you back into the CPR re-certification simulation scenario.
What you have just experience is a simulated emergency. This computerized scenario, requires you to administer a systematic response based on online tutorials. Each simulation escalates in difficulty; level 1 has more assistance and helpful tips at your disposal. In comparison level 3 is an exam, truly testing your cognitive decision making.
A recent study by AiiA, has found that demand for automation and AI as a critical part of operation strategy has grown to 80 % in recent years, altering the way individuals receive, review and retain information. With the introduction of automation, it is possible to see growth and a more modern approach to CPR renewal without leaving the comforts of our homes, making recertification processes more efficient then ever.
In previous years, to get a CPR recertification required a full day of lecture and simulated practice at a disclosed location, requiring you to retain all the information and then apply the technique soon after. With newer CPR automation practices, we are simulating an individual’s skill experience through muscle memory, recall automation and AI simulation, enabling individuals the opportunity to practice and review information as needed. Following this automation with a practical in-class simulation, enhances training recall and may reduce study time and time away from jobs and school. Hands on CPR renewals benefits from repetitive enhanced learning environment which, if performed correctly, can improve cognitive decision making, rapid recognition responses and muscle memory.
CPR renewal requirements aligned with newer technologies allow for an organization’s operating requirements to reach a larger and broader audience utilizing a cost-effective approach. Automation and AI simulations can assist our future generations by bridging the gap between industry competency requirements and challenge execution. Moulage when combined with computerized simulation works hand in hand for an effective renewal experience, engaging all sensory options.
No longer the days of long training sessions and days spent, newer advances of CPR renewal brings the rapid recall to training skills and automation practices, enabling each of us to return to lives and our jobs in a world where time is in short supply of both.
