Abstract

To provide medical support to the far forward battlefield, training in advanced medical technologies is essential for military healthcare providers. To meet this challenge, the use of modern video communication technologies and novel medical devices can be implemented. This study demonstrates the combined use of modern video conferencing technology and video laryngoscopy equipment in the virtual laryngoscopy training of deployed military medical personnel.
