MedLern has completed an American Heart Association (AHA)-backed training programme for nursing students at RR Institutions, a Bangalore-based educational service group. As a part of the programme, as many as 150 nursing students received AHA certification in Basic Life Support or BLS, a critical component in a nursing student’s curriculum.
While the healthcare sector has been reeling under the twin blows of the pandemic and shortage of skilled staff, the new developments signal a new phase of innovative training models that leverage technology to rapidly and confidently build the talent base in crucial areas.
The simulation-based platform is designed to test and train on the theoretical knowledge as well as hands-on skills that can save hundreds of thousands of lives in ERs, ICUs and accidents and other situations. The platform incorporates the latest evidence-based research on CPR from the American Heart Association and the latest digital technologies like IOT to create confidence in the learners. Interestingly, traditional training methods to achieve the same proficiency take many days since they have to be done under the supervision of an experienced trainer and are subject to human error in observation.
MedLern’s platform provides precise feedback and corrective suggestions on the learner’s actions in real-time – on timing, depth of compressions, airway management etc. so learners rapidly gain confidence to face a real-life emergency and significantly improve the chances of saving lives.
