The Regional Anesthesia RA and Central Venous Access CVA mixed reality simulators areready to be delivered to DoD, both exceeding original specifications. Preliminary data from a new study ofthe CVA simulator indicates that an integrated tutor may be non-inferior to a humaninstructor, opening the possibility of self-study and self-debriefing which in turnfacilitate competency-based, instead of time-based simulation training. A manuscriptdescribing a study showing that visual augmentation, whether in real tie or delayed, improveslearning and performance, has been accepted pending revision by Anesthesia and Analgesia.A software development kit SDK has been started that will allow third parties to developnew simulators for procedures beyond the 5 deliverables to DoD that include an ultrasoundprobe and a needle.
