Stress is an influencing factor in safety-critical environments as it has been shown to have adverse affects on both nurses and patients. However, if correctly handled, it can increase efficiency. Virtual reality (VR) has become a wide-spread medium with use cases in many different industries, such as medicine, military, and aviation. The possibility of VR to create an immersive experience in a realistic depiction of the working environments including typical stressors, such as an ICU, makes it a good candidate as a training tool. This work outlines possible technologies and applications to create and measure stress for a wholistic training experience.
