New ALERT - Biometric parameters of Critical Care Practitioners using Hexoskin

  1. 1. ALERT Presentation: A prospective study investigating the measurement of biometric parameters of critical care practitioners in various clinical scenarios using the wearable performance tracking device known as Hexoskin™ Nicholas Slamon MD, Ellen Deutsch MD, Shirley Viteri MD, Vinay Nadkarni MD Nemours/duPont Hospital for Children Wilmington DE, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia PA INSPIRE @ IMSH 2016 – San Diego, CA / USA International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education
  2. 2. • The measurement of biometric parameters in critical care physicians in various work scenarios has never before been reported. • This study hopes to first describe the biometrics of critical care practitioners in simulated stressful environments and explore if biofeedback can alter those parameters. International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education Background
  3. 3. • P: Pediatric critical care physicians of various levels of experience • I: Measurement of biometric parameters using Hexoskin(shown below) • C:To known normal vital sign variables and comparison between groups of various training levels • O: Measure heart rate (HR), heart rate variability (HRV), respiratory rate (RR), Tidal Volume (TV), Duration of activity, estimated calories burned, steps taken with calculated distance walked estimate, sleep time and sleep efficiency. If these parameters are seen by the physician, can they be altered with training? International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education PICO / Research Question
  4. 4. • Subjects will wear the Hexoskin device and track biometrics during scheduled simulation and work activities. • During the simulation portion of this protocol, – The control subjects will be blinded to their biometric display. – The study group will be able to see their real time biometrics displayed on an Ipad™ as they run the simulation. – Both control and study subjects, will repeat simulations to see if “training” using the Hexoskin will result in better control of the normally autonomic functions measured by the shirt. International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education Approach / Design
  5. 5. • ALERT Presentation • Grant Proposal: Completed, Nemours Fund for Children’s Health grant. • IRB Submission: Completed • Recruitment / Data Collection: Phase I underway: Simulations completed with 7 subjects • Data Analysis:Ongoing • Abstract Presentation:Pending • Manuscript Preparation:Pending International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education Timeline
  6. 6. 1. Would actors hired to be confederates raise the stress level of those in the simulation scenarios? 2. Would film review after the fact be an additional learning experience to enhance the biofeedback training or introduce bias? 3.Should we extend the study group to practitioners outside of critical care? ED, Trauma, General pediatrics? International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education 3 questions to improve study
  7. 7. At INSPIRE @ IMSH 2016: Obtain suggestions from experienced simulation teams on improving the simulation experience. In 2 months: Second simulation session with PCCM fellows, Begin real life work scenario data collection and analysis International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education Goals to accomplish
