Undergraduate Research Scholars

  1. 1. By Emily Schaefer and Lindsay Young
  2. 2.   Training/Education   RN, PhD, EMT   Affiliations/Employment ◦  University of Wisconsin - Departments of Anesthesiology, Athletics ◦  Middleton EMS ◦  Town of Madison Fire Department
  3. 3.   Participate in weekly team meetings   Completion of HIPPA training and IRB Human Subjects Training to learn about patient safety and privacy in order to work with research dealing with human subjects.   Continuous work on the simulation-based website which includes editing/reviewing existing simulation technology, adding new simulation games and technology, and completing research of these items.   Helping contribute to a literature review comparing the ErgoMask to the standard Bag Valve Mask
  4. 4.   Dr. Bauman, Allan Barclay, and the three undergraduates help edit the search engine of simulation games and therapy in order to better organize information for this material.
  5. 5.   For each item in the data base of the website we look to include key information such as ◦  The name of the product ◦  A description ◦  A URL where the product may be found ◦  A Vendor ◦  An Audience ◦  The health care Topics that the product covers ◦  And a Platform
  6. 6.   Sickle Cell Slime-o-Rama Game Online game show featuring questions about life with sickle cell disease. The questions describe the disease itself, effects on the body, and proper lifestyle decisions based toward younger children.   iStan ◦  Developed by the military, iStan in a mannequin realistically moves, breaths, lives, and dies. iStan is wirelessly controlled, and is so realistic, his skin even has pores and hair follicles.  The variety of different types of simulation have opened our eyes to many different types of learning in the areas of medicine and health, and how this learning may be applied.
  7. 7.   We are also researching a new breathing and ventilation facemask called the ErgoMask that is designed to out perform the standard mask model while being used in conjunction with bag valve resuscitation. ◦  Unfortunately not much information on the ErgoMask is available ◦  Find literature reviews comparing the effectiveness and performance of the Standard Bag Valve Mask to the ErgoMask
  8. 8. Side-by-Side Comparison of ErgoMaskTM & Standard Mask
  9. 9.   We hypothesize that the ErgoMask will create a more positive outcome than the standard bag valve mask when used by novice clinicians. As seen here both men, in red, and women, in black, performed better when using the ErgoMask. The gender difference in performance may be due to hand size and flexibility
  10. 10.  The ErgoMask project is relatively new to those of us that have just come into this research due to mostly working on the website.   Having a glimpse at the ErgoMask has shown us the importance of comparing products in the health field to insure that the best product is being used.
  11. 11.   Both learning about simulation therapy and new air pathways are beneficial in our research.   Simulation therapy can change how health care is taught and may decrease error in real life crisis management situations.   Learning about new air pathway devises can help us learn about comparative research by going through steps in order to prove which pathway works more efficiently.   What we have learned about is intriguing and is something we would have not had the chance to understand without this research. This information may shape new ideas and devises in healthcare, which makes it exciting to be able to work and learn about.
