Two surgeons and one chief resident will be involved in the surgical procedure. One surgeon shall be wearing Go Pro Hero 3 camera using a head mount giving a first-person view, and the second surgeon shall be wearing Go Pro Hero 3 camera on his chest giving an aerial view of the surgery table. The transmission shall be directed from the surgeon’s camera to a transmitter in the operating room and then will be broadcasted live through the IBM cloud server to authorized residents. See Figure 1
Residents will be using their Individual Laptop/PC/mobile equipment with native TelemedEdu Android/iOS Mobile application to observe the surgery at their own convenience. In addition to that, they shall have a digital access of anesthesiology and perfusion status during surgery. Prior to the start of the surgery, the resident shall also have access of digital files in an online cloud drive giving access to the patient’s medical, diagnostic history and testing records (e.g., X-ray, MRI, CT scan, laboratory tests, etc.). All of this will be done after a written agreement with the consent of both and the surgeon and the patient to let their ongoing surgery become a real-time learning opportunity for other candidates.
Residents will be allowed to raise questions via an electronic link during the surgery session to the chief resident who shall communicate with the surgeons to provide answers if feasible.
