The presentation will review the progress on creating a VR application for first responders that trains and assesses readiness for Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). The application is completely voice-driven with the exception of a vitals monitor, allowing learners to act just like they would as a team lead in an actual cardiac event or simulation for certification. We will discuss the effects of believability and immersion in the interface. We will also discuss the app’s tracking backend that allows agencies to assess the readiness of their learners.
