Simulatoren und Simulatortraining in der interventionellen Elektrophysiologie

Simulators and simulator training in interventional electrophysiology


Simulatoren und Simulatortraining sind von großer Bedeutung in vielen Bereichen der Industrie und Medizin. In der interventionellen Kardiologie stehen Simulatoren zur Verfügung, um spezielle Techniken zu erlernen oder auch um das Handling von Komplikationen im ganzen Team zu üben. In der Elektrophysiologie gibt es aktuell erste Ansätze, um Simulatoren gezielt zum Training einzusetzen. Ein realitätsnahes Simulatorsystem existiert bisher in der Elektrophysiologie nicht.


Simulators and simulator training are commonly used in many areas of industry and medicine. Simulators offer excellent training modalities for interventional cardiology to practice certain procedures and the handling of associated complications. In the field of electrophysiology, there are currently initial approaches to using simulators specifically for training purposes. A realistic simulator system does not yet exist in electrophysiology.
