Cover Story (view full-size image): Fire in the operating room (OR) while implementing anesthesia is a high-risk, low-frequency event that can have untoward patient outcomes. Mixed reality simulation gives healthcare professionals an opportunity to prepare themselves through a replicable simulated environment. This study evaluated technical and non-technical skills of student registered nurse anesthetists who participated in a mixed reality simulation of OR fires using Magic Leap OneTM headsets. Participants demonstrated a strong performance of technical and non-technical skills in the management of a simulated OR fire. Additional research testing applications of mixed reality in health professions education is warranted. View this paper.
