OBJECTIVES The primary objective was to determine if wireless remote monitoring with automatic clinician alerts reduces the time from a clinical event to a clinical decision in response to arrhythmias, cardiovascular (CV) disease progression, and device issues compared to patients receiving standard in-office care. A secondary objective was to compare the(More)
BACKGROUND Indications for implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators have greatly expanded in the last 5 years, encompassing a wider variety of patients with a multitude of comorbidities. To meet the needs of these patients, the managing clinicians need to streamline their follow-up care. New(More)
Multimodal interfaces offer great potential to humanize interactions with computers by employing a multitude of perceptual channels. This paper reports on a novel multimodal interface using auditory, haptic and visual feedback in a direct manipulation task to establish new recommendations for multimodal feedback, in particular uni-, bi- and trimodal(More)
Multimodal interfaces have the potential to enhance a user's overall performance, especially when one perceptual channel, such as vision, is compromised. This research investigated how unimodal, bimodal, and trimodal feedback affected the performance of fully sighted users. Limited research exists that investigates how fully sighted users react to(More)
BACKGROUND Eye tracking is an accurate and objective means of measuring an instrument scan pattern. The purpose of this study was to determine if prior aircraft experience, phase of flight, and autopilot mode modified the instrument scan pattern of F-117A pilots. METHODS There were 23 F-117A pilots, grouped by prior aircraft experience, who flew an(More)
