OBJECTIVE Data representations on today's medical monitors need to be improved to advance clinical awareness and prevent data vigilance errors. Simply building graphical displays does not ensure an improvement in clinical performance because displays have to be consistent with the user's clinical processes and mental models. In this report, the development(More)
UNLABELLED "Human error" in anesthesia can be attributed to misleading information from patient monitors or to the physician's failure to recognize a pattern. A graphic representation of monitored data may provide better support for detection, diagnosis, and treatment. We designed a graphic display to show hemodynamic variables. Twenty anesthesiologists(More)
OBJECTIVE Authors developed a picture-graphics display for pulmonary function to present typical respiratory data used in perioperative and intensive care environments. The display utilizes color, shape and emergent alerting to highlight abnormal pulmonary physiology. The display serves as an adjunct to traditional operating room displays and monitors. (More)
OBJECTIVE To conceptualize delivery of anesthesia as a control task, similar to control tasks in nonmedical domains, and to evaluate how presentation of new information and feedback affects task performance. BACKGROUND In anesthesia, integrated monitors that show intravenous drug and effect-site concentrations in a patient currently do not exist. However,(More)
INTRODUCTION Sevoflurane-remifentanil interaction models that predict responsiveness and response to painful stimuli have been evaluated in patients undergoing elective surgery. Preliminary evaluations of model predictions were found to be consistent with observations in patients anesthetized with sevoflurane, remifentanil, and fentanyl. This study explored(More)
This project involves the design, construction and performance of an " architecture of being " that expresses selfhood in virtual space and real time using: (1) physiological data as its building material, (2) architectural design as its expressive intent, (3) digital space as its medium, (4) screen projection as its enveloping and viewing technique, (5)(More)
INTRODUCTION We previously reported models that characterized the synergistic interaction between remifentanil and sevoflurane in blunting responses to verbal and painful stimuli. This preliminary study evaluated the ability of these models to predict a return of responsiveness during emergence from anesthesia and a response to tibial pressure when patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To lay the foundation for a framework of just-in-time support (JITS) for novices dealing with urgent, unfamiliar tasks, and to evaluate a JITS system. BACKGROUND More than 350,000 people die annually of cardiac arrest in the United States. In response, automated defibrillators are advocated that, unfortunately, do not provide important(More)
