OBJECTIVE To measure and compare the response times to audibly or visually presented alarms in the operating theatre. METHODS The time taken by anaesthetists to cancel randomly generated visual and audible false alarms was measured during maintenance of routine anaesthesia. Alarms were generated and times recorded by a laptop computer on the anaesthetic(More)
Introduction: Instruments and cameras on board the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) rover give ground truth information on chemistry, terrain, and atmospheric characteristics of the rover's traverse to Mount Sharp in the center of Gale crater. Analysis of this unique and robust data set allows for a thought experiment to determine the ability of a future(More)
A study was done to evaluate the performance of suction apparatus in the operating room. The investigation was prompted by perceived poor suction performance in a suite of new operating rooms built in accordance with Standards Australia (SA) specifications. SA performance tests were conducted on each of four suction outlets in nine operating rooms. All 36(More)
We have examined the use of a 6 kg strain-gauge load cell for the purpose of continuous measurement of cardiotomy reservoir volume during cardiopulmonary bypass. It performed reliably and reproducibly and was found to be simple to interface to an anaesthesia monitor. The resolution of the cell was +/- 15 ml and the bias and limits of agreement for a series(More)
Introduction: The Autonomous Exploration Gathering for Increased Science (AEGIS) software suite [1] was uploaded to the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) mission’s Curiosity rover in late 2015 and tested on the surface of Mars over several months [2]. On 6 May 2016, the system was approved for use by the MSL science operations team, and first ran in routine(More)
