Development of a lumbar puncture virtual simulator for medical students training: A preliminary evaluation

Abstract

Background: Lumbar puncture is an essential medical procedure whose objective is to obtain cerebrospinal fluid. Lumbar puncture is considered a complex procedure, mainly for novice residents who suffer from stress and low confidence, which may result in harm to the patient.
Methods: The LPVirSim, has been developed in four stages: i) requirements analysis through user‐centred design; ii) prototyping of the virtual environment and the haptic component; iii) preliminary tests with Ph.D. students and physicians using two haptic devices (Omega.7 and Sigma.7); v) a user study where physicians evaluated the usability and user experience.
Results: The LPVirSim integrates non‐technical skills and the possibility of representing different patients for training. Usability increased from 61.76 to 68.75 in the preliminary tests to 71.43 in the user study.
Conclusions: All the results showed good usability and demonstrated that the simulator arouses interest and realistically represents a Lumbar puncture, through the force and visual feedback.
