UAE—Al Qassimi Hospital in Sharjah, a flagship healthcare facility of Emirates Health Services (EHS), has acquired the latest cardiac catheterization simulator from HeartRoid.

The simulator features three advanced models designed to train doctors to treat various heart conditions.

This advanced simulator features three distinct models designed specifically for treating various heart diseases.

This strategic acquisition underscores EHS’s commitment to integrating cutting-edge technologies that enhance medical staff efficiency and patient safety standards in interventional cardiology.

The first model, Cardiac Simulation for Safe Coronary Intervention, represents a pioneering leap in medical training.

 It allows practitioners to simulate coronary artery procedures without needing real-patient involvement, providing a consistent training environment that mimics actual heart arteries.

This approach significantly reduces the risks associated with conventional training methods for heart stent procedures, thereby bolstering medical staff preparedness.

Moreover, this innovative technology stands as a cornerstone in modern medical training, elevating the expertise of healthcare professionals and enhancing overall healthcare standards.

Physicians can hone their skills and practice intricate procedures in a controlled, safe environment, boosting their confidence and effectiveness in real cases.

The second model, Simulation for Aortic Valve Replacement, also represents another cutting-edge advancement.

 It enables comprehensive training in complex procedures like aortic valve replacement without subjecting patients to the inherent risks of actual surgery.

 This feature is particularly crucial given the intricacies involved in operations on patients with valve stenosis, ensuring that physicians are well-prepared to deliver high-quality care.

The third model focuses on Treating Electrical Cardiac Disorders through cardiac electrophysiology simulations.

 This novel area allows for experimentation via simulation, providing user-friendly, lifelike heart visuals to train physicians in conducting cardiac ablation procedures using advanced three-dimensional maps.

Such models create a safe, intuitive training environment, equipping physicians with the necessary skills to effectively diagnose and treat cardiac electrical disorders.

Dr. Arif Al Nooryani, Director of Al Qassimi Hospital, emphasized that embracing these modern technologies aligns with EHS’s goals to advance and sustain the healthcare sector in the UAE.

This commitment involves enhancing healthcare services, integrating cutting-edge technologies, and continuously improving the efficiency of medical staff to deliver top-quality care to the community.

He further highlighted that introducing the first-of-its-kind cardiac catheterization simulator in the Middle East underscores their dedication to enhancing local medical capabilities and fostering an exceptional learning environment for aspiring physicians.

These initiatives underscore a growing focus on providing superior medical services by enhancing the skills of doctors and specialists in interventional cardiology through realistic simulation experiences for complex medical procedures.

Furthermore, Dr. Al Nooryani mentioned plans for a series of workshops to train users on the Japanese simulation device and its three models, ensuring widespread proficiency among medical professionals in leveraging these advanced technologies.
