In this study conducted at Mount Sinai HELPS Center, authors compare VR and mannequin-based simulations for ACLS (Advanced Cardiopulmonary Life Support) training. They show that users measured skills in VR is closely correlated with those in classical method (with the mannequin). Even if VR can’t replace the old method, it will be very efficient to be used for individualized training, more often and for a lower cost. The study found that VR simulation was predictive…"Mount Sinai HELPS Center Study Finds Virtual Reality ACLS Simulation Training Effective for Assessing ACLS Competency"
