Training for surgeons: remote connection to the operating room
The academic life of a surgeon is long and demanding; a path that goes through different phases: from university, through residency and specialties. In fact, as in most professions, one never stops learning, and the need to keep up to date with new techniques, tools or surgical procedures is 100% recommendable.
On the other hand, as is also the case in other professions, the practical part is fundamental, as it is through it that one begins to execute what has been learned theoretically and complements the training.
Training for surgeons also means that, from a practical point of view and for obvious reasons, it must be controlled and supervised, as there is practically no margin for error.
Training for surgeons
Remote activities, as well as their positive adoption by society, have been accentuated by the Covid-19 pandemic, which boosted tools that connected two or more people remotely and in real time.
In the field of training for surgeons, remote communication has enabled them to attend a master class without the need to be in the operating theatre.
Technology has enabled the integration of clinical and imaging equipment in the operating theatre (laparoscopy, zenithal camera, X-rays, ultrasound scanners, monitors, etc.) so that a surgeon, normally an expert in the field, can give a master class offering a comprehensive view of the operation being performed.
Surgeons in training can connect from anywhere, via any device and in webinar format, to follow the surgical techniques being performed remotely and in real time.
Master of Ceremonies with Augmented Reality
Today's technology means that, on occasions, in addition to the surgeon who is performing an operation, there is another expert surgeon who explains what is happening in the operating theatre from outside the operating theatre.
This is a "master of ceremonies" who acts as the "producer" of the broadcast, managing the video/audio sources to be broadcast at any given moment and the questions or interactions that the viewers wish to ask the operating surgeon.
This is undoubtedly an important profile for the dynamism of the training and the reinforcement of the key messages to be transmitted to the students, often using Augmented Reality tools.
