The ORSIM bronchoscopy simulator is designed to encourage deliberate regular practice of bronchoscopy skills. The following features allow rapid and easy use:
The ORSIM consists of three main parts: a replica video bronchoscope, a desktop sensor and a dedicated laptop with software program.
The replica video bronchoscope is connected to the small desktop sensor. The sensor registers movement of the insertion tube and translates this to a three-dimensional virtual airway displayed through the software on the laptop screen. The user can progress through a range of upper and lower airway scenarios receiving instant feedback as well as scoring metrics, recording and play-back.
The ORSIM provides comprehensive training for a common diagnostic procedure, which until now has required lengthy specialist training. Based on its size, simplicity and economy, it is suitable for large training organizations as well as individual practices.
