Abstract:

We have used a synthetic work environment SYNWORK to test performance of anesthesiologist during their workday and worknight. An abstract of this work will be presented at a meeting in February titled Human Performance and Anesthesia Technology and this abstract is attached to this report as Enclosure 1. We will be exploring the abilities of SYNWORK further using a revised version SYNFAST which we believe may be able to detect more fine grained degradation in physician performance. We will also be testing the original SYNWORK with known depressors of performance to calibrate the decrements in performance on SYNWORK.
