Recording of surgeries for the treatment of heart arrhythmia

The LMMFE team, in cooperation with the students of Multimedia, recorded the procedures for the treatment of heart arrhythmia with the help of ablation, which were carried out at the clinical department of cardiology of the University Clinical Center in Ljubljana. The prepared content will be used in the future at conferences and in the education of the next generation of cardiologists. The recording took place in the “live-to-tape” mode, which means that the editing of multimedia content was done in real time, as if it were a live broadcast.

The recording included 3 remote-controlled cameras, several microphones and digital capture of various special medical devices, such as 3D heart mapping system, ultrasound, electrocardiogram, endoscopic camera and others. The use of remote cameras made it possible to eliminate the need for the presence of cameramen in the operating room, which is very important in sterile environments. The capture of digital devices is a fairly demanding process due to tampering restrictions and other factors in the medical environment, but it allows measurements, diagrams and other displays on the instruments to be captured in high quality, as if medical personnel were viewing them on the devices in real time.

In the coming months, at one of the professional conferences, the laboratory team will even arrange for the live transmission of surgeries to the lecture hall and to a teleconference call in a similar way, whereby the listeners and the cardiologist will also be able to communicate with each other.
