Instructions for using the simulator:
Navigation is accomplished by clicking on the arrows in the Navigation Arrows section. It should be noted that in each part of the airway, only the highlighted arrows are available for movement.
UP: moves the bronchoscope forward
DOWN: moves the bronchoscope backwards
DIAGONAL LEFT: moves the bronchoscope left and forward
DIAGONAL RIGHT: moves the bronchoscope right and forward
Bronchial Tree Navigation Map: The user can follow the path of the bronchoscope on the Bronchial Tree Map. If desired, labels on the map can be added or removed by clicking on the Labeling Controls below the map. This allows the user to test their knowledge. Zooming in on the map can be done by adjusting the Diagram Zoom bar on the left. The map itself can be moved by clicking and holding on it with the left mouse button. The mouse can then be used to position the map where needed.
Bronchoscope View Labels: When the Bronchoscope View Labels are enabled, the user can point the mouse pointer over each label on the video in order to read a “learning point”. These labels provide anatomic clues to help learn the bronchoscopic anatomy.
