Abstract:

As summarized below, a number of patient treatment scenarios have been video-taped and are undergoing video analysis. In addition, demographic and personality test data are being collected from staff anesthesiologists, and a number of participants are undergoing baseline training i.e., being trained to asymptote on the SYNWORK performance assessment test in anticipation of self- administering this computerized test after selected trauma treatment sessions as an objective measure of fatigue. As also summarized below, an extensive data- base environment using Borlands Paradox Data-Base Management Software has been implemented for importing or entering, maintaining, and relating the various types of data being collected. The video analysis protocol is organized by treatment sessions i.e., cases. A treatment session, of course, pertains to a particular patient, but there may be more than one session analysed for a given patient, for example, when separate recordings are made in the Admitting Area and in the Operating Room for a given patient.
