Sedation and Airway


In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Virtual Heroes is making HumanSim: Sedation and Airway FREE to the public. This 3D interactive virtual trainer enables healthcare workers to practice techniques for quickly sedating and intubating critically-ill patients who are unable to breathe on their own.

HumanSim: Sedation and Airway trains administering anesthesia in austere environments via Rapid Sequence Induction (RSI) and Moderate Sedation. The application couples an advanced physiology engine with an immersive training environment, addressing critical skill proficiencies and cognitive decision making for physicians deployed in the field. Features include:

  • Multiple scenarios – The physiology engine models ten scenarios involving different types of patients requiring sedation
  • Drug effects –The multiple drugs required for proper sedation are modeled using drug curves, including contraindications and multiple drug effects
  • Airway trauma modeling – Airway trauma such as anaphylaxis is modeled by increasing airway resistance
