The Mentice Right Heart Cath app is a mobile solution for an interactive real-time exploration into the right heart catheterization (RHC) procedure. The app uses rendered 3D anatomy to illustrate the anatomical process producing pressure wave readings during a procedure. Utilize fluoroscopy mode and on-screen catheter controls to simulate the cath lab environment for realistic training.
Users can perform a procedure and take readings with 4 common results and 3 pathologies they may not have had access to previously. Combine with a VIST® Mini (Mentice Right Heart Cath Trainer) for a higher fidelity training experience using real tools to further cement the motor muscle skills of a procedure.
Right heart cath is one of the first hands-on procedures interventional physicians perform as residents and fellows. Confidence and experience gained from simulated training can help make their first procedure successful and decrease risk to patients.
4 interactive cases
Mobile platform available in the App Store allows individualized simulation training on personal devices so each user can access training anytime and anywhere.
Rendered 3D real-time interactive anatomy provides spatial and anatomical understanding of what causes pressure wave changes and helps with retention.
Real-time fluoroscopy mode & on-screen catheter controls simulate the cath lab environment for realistic training.
Guided walk-throughs of each case explain what causes changes to pressure waves for self-learning without the need for proctoring.
Normal vs. pathology overlays make it easy to visually compare differences in pressure change that would otherwise need to be imagined.
Test mode allows users to complete a case using fluoro without assistance, make a diagnosis, and receive feedback on performance, helping with retention and identifying knowledge gaps.
Institutions may purchase the Mentice Right Heart Cath App add-on to enhance the training experience, using the app in conjunction with a VIST® Mini device in order to use real tools while completing cases. Buy app licenses in bulk for distributed training on personal devices before testing skills using real catheters with the simulator.Learn more or book a demo
