• REBOA stands for ‘Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta’. It is a potentially life-saving temporising procedure in cases where a patient has significant intra-abdominal haemorrhage and is haemodynamically unstable.
  • The REBOA procedure was chosen as the proof-of-concept procedure for Virtual Reality (VR) training because of the relatively simple steps in the modified Seldinger technique.
