Oklahoma City () – EMSA new employees are committed to improving their critical thinking skills in emergencies without leaving the classroom.

This month, EMSA began testing a new virtual reality device that allows new employees to experience a trauma machine in the classroom.

During VR training, healthcare professionals move and observe in a dedicated space similar to that encountered at the scene of critical first aid.

VR also takes advantage of changes in weather, noise levels, and time of day to simulate real-life situations that healthcare professionals encounter while working. The layout and design of the VR ambulance match that of the EMSA ambulance, making it even more immersive.

The instructor can report to the healthcare professional after training and point out specific actions that can be changed.

Virtual reality training is currently being tested only by new academy employees, officials said. However, it will be used with all EMSA team members who care for the patient.
