DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pediatric and neonatal airway management skills are life-saving, difficult to master, and used infrequently enough to make skill maintenance a serious challenge. For example, multiple studies have shown that pediatric and neonatal intubation procedures are often successful less than half of the time, especially among residents. Given the long skill acquisition cycles (in spite of modern simulation training), new training methodologies are required. In recent years, therehas widespread adoption of patient simulators in the medical education community. The didactic value of these simulators could be significantly improved if the trainee was able to understand the location of internal landmarks, as well as visualize normaland pathological states of the body during training. This would help trainees understand the relationship between their actions and what is occurring in the body. ArchieMD proposes to develop a pediatric airway mixed reality medical simulation system
