Engineering Critical Patient Care
The work environment for Anesthesiologists in the surgical theater, ICU and patient transport is little changed for decades. Significant improvements can be made in patient safety, ergonomics and work flow for anesthesiologists, technicians and nurses. There are a number of potential projects which individually can significantly improve the environment for anesthesiologists and other providers resulting in improving the standard of patient care.
Issues Involved or Addressed
Projects will include:
-Improving patient and personnel safety ergonomics, efficiency, and cost
-Developing applications for training of anesthesiologists
-Prioritize findings and conceive, characterize, design, prototype and implement improvements and remedies representing positive step changes in the standard of patient care.
