Increasing incidences of arrhythmia and heart failure have fostered rapid advancements in cardiac rhythm management (CRM) technologies. Mentice’s CRM software helps physicians by providing hands-on, realistic simulation training to develop and hone their skills on these technologies—keeping them ahead of the curve.
Performed by interventional cardiologists and electrophysiologists, CRM is challenging and calls for the thorough understanding of device selection, correct lead placement and analyzing pacing measurements. Current methods of training mainly involve patients—the Mentice solution has been developed to help physicians practice, advance and build upon these skills, without unnecessary risk to themselves or their patients.
By practicing and repeating the procedure through simulation, physicians can fine-tune their techniques across several anatomical variations, all based on real-life data—providing practical training, with advanced metrics to assess and track progress.
