MedStar Health XR Projects
NOTE: This page is a work in progress. Some documentation of the follow projects is still yet to be done.
I worked for MedStar Health on a small team for about 3 years. During my time at MedStar I worked on a variety of Virtual Reality projects geared towards training medical personnel. The projects are listed below. My main contribution to these projects was programming work surrounding the XR Rig and XR interactions in the various projects. I also oversaw the recording and editing of all voice overs in COBLEX.

Code Blue Team Lead Trainer (COBLEX)
A “Code Blue” is an emergency code indicating that a patient is in critical status and in need of immediate care. This could happen if the patient goes into cardiac arrest, has severe respiratory issues, or another medical emergency. Hospitals have Code Blue response teams that are at the ready to spring into action when notified about a code blue. COBLEX puts you in the shoes of a Code Blue Team Lead, a doctor placed in charge of managing a code blue response team in resuscitating and stabilizing the patient. In this simulation players are challenged with commanding a team of medical professionals of varying backgrounds to diagnose the patients issue and respond accordingly. Player’s use patient medical data, EKG data, and other information in order to diagnose the patient.
Patient Model Viewer
I lead the development of an application used to view patient models before operations. This helps doctors prepare for surgery by allowing them to view the area of the patient they will be working on beforehand. Viewing these models in 3d provides a cheaper and more portable alternative to using medical grade 3D models.
Quality & Safety
Quality and Safety was a project spun out of the COBLEX project. It repurposed the assets for use in a project geared towards teaching nurses how to perform quality and safety room checks when performing their normal rounds in a hospital.
Stop The Bleed
Stop the bleed is a project geared towards non-medical professionals in order to train them on the procedures used to stop a traumatic injury from bleeding.
