Intensive care units (ICUs) that host patients infected with COVID-19 through the SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus are typically separated from other care units in the hospital. In typical ICU ward rounds, a number of multidisciplinary experts from different medical areas and expertise levels are present to discuss the situation and care of the patient. However, this procedure is contrasting the current COVID-19 recommendations regarding contact and personnel traffic. In this project, we demonstrate a system for mixed reality (MR) teleconsultation to support ICU wards (RTKMD). Through RTKMD, remote experts can join a local 3D reconstructed ICU visit in virtual reality (VR) and support local experts that are equipped with an augmented reality (AR) system. Our goal is to reduce personnel traffic and in turn the risk of an infection spread.
We are excited to announce that this work has been accepted to IEEE VR 2021 3D UI contest. Stay tuned here and visit our presentation at the conference for more information.
