OBJECTIVE The goals of this study were to understand the reasons underlying the limited use of medical decision-support tools and to explore the potential of a computer-based tutorial to mitigate barriers to use. BACKGROUND Medical decision-support tools such the Acute Cardiac Ischemia Time-Insensitive Predictive Instrument (ACI-TIPI) have demonstrated(More)
The integration of disparate information systems in the operative environment allows access to information that is typically unseen or unused. Through a collaborative effort, a variety of information systems and surgical equipment are being integrated. This provides improved context-sensitive information display and decision support and improved access to(More)
Capsaicin, main pungent ingredient of hot chilli peppers, has been shown to have anticarcinogenic effect on various cancer cells through multiple mechanisms. In this study, we investigated the apoptotic effect of capsaicin on human pancreatic cancer cells in both in vitro and in vivo systems, as well as the possible mechanisms involved. In vitro, treatment(More)
The integration and presentation of information from a number of disparate sources in the operative environment raises a number of usability and human factors challenges. Through a collaborative effort, a display combining persistent and dynamically switching panes provides a rich source of information to help orient team members, provide indications of(More)
