BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the perceptual (2-dimensional [2D] vs. 3-dimensional [3D] view) and instrumental (classical vs. robotic) impacts of new robotic system on learning curves. METHODS Forty medical students without any surgical experience were randomized into 4 groups (classical laparoscopy with 3D-direct view or with(More)
From the literature on error detection, the authors select several concepts relating error detection mechanisms and prospective memory features. They emphasize the central role of intention in the classification of the errors into slips/lapses/mistakes, in the error handling process and in the usual distinction between action-based and outcome-based(More)
BACKGROUND Formal studies on stress in anaesthetists have usually measured stress through mental or physiological indicators. When using this approach, one must be careful not to confuse the effects of stress or outcome variables and the sources of stress or antecedent variables. To date, it seems from the literature that there is no clear evidence of a(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Recently, many researchers have been studying stress and burnout in anaesthesia. Some researchers have examined the effects of stress in the workplace. Others have identified some job characteristics that have an impact on anaesthetist's well-being. Yet, few studies use the same measure of stress and/or define the concept of stress in the(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of 3D and 2D vision on performance of novice subjects using da Vinci robotic system. METHODS 224 nurses without any surgical experience were divided into two groups and executed a motor task with the robotic system in 2D for one group and with the robotic system in 3D for the other(More)
This study aimed to evaluate the impact of two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) images on time performance and time estimation during a surgical motor task. A total of 60 subjects without any surgical experience (nurses) and 20 expert surgeons performed a fine surgical task with a new laparoscopic technology (da Vinci robotic system). The 80(More)
Although error has been shown as the main cause of accidents in complex systems, little attention has been paid to error detection. However, reducing the consequences of error depends largely on error detection. The goal of this paper is to synthesize the existing scientific knowledge on error detection, mostly based on studies conducted in laboratory or(More)
The aim of this paper is to analyze how novices and experts are able to safely adapt and transfer their skills to new technology in medical domain. In order to answer this question, we compared the performance of 12 novices (medical students) with the performance of 12 laparoscopic surgeons (using a 2D view) and 4 robotic surgeons, using a new robotic(More)
UNLABELLED In this study, we compared two different training simulators (the computer screen-based simulator versus the full-scale simulator) with respect to training effectiveness in anesthesia residents. Participants were evaluated in the management of a simulated preprogrammed scenario of anaphylactic shock using two variables: treatment score and(More)
Hospitals have become more and more complex organizations that require increasing degrees of vertical, lateral and longitudinal coordination among their staff. As organizations, hospitals positively organize the coordination between the activities of its different agents, as well as the associated communication between them. The overall goal is to construct(More)
