Lecat’s Ventriloscope has developed a healthcare simulation training accessory known as VentriloCAST, which enables Ventriloscope’s High- Fidelity Simulation Auscultation Stethoscopes the ability to broadcast normal and abnormal sounds over a Zoom or any video conferencing app. The VentriloCAST accessory is easy to connect, inexpensive and requires no ongoing operating costs. This is especially useful for clinical simulation educators adopting Telesimulation in an effort to keep learners engaged during the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.
