BACKGROUND Poor ergonomic design of ventilators can result in human errors. In this study, we evaluated the ergonomics of ventilators through respiratory therapists' performance, workload, and user experience. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixteen respiratory therapists were recruited to this usability study of 3 ventilators. Participants had to perform 7 tasks on each ventilator. Respiratory therapists' performance was measured by task errors of all tasks for each participant. Workload was measured by objective mea...
Most anesthetic ventilators are designed to cope with a wide range of patient sizes and may lack precision at the lowest end of the minute volume scale. Neonatal intensive care ventilators on the other hand are designed specifically for this patient group, but are not able to deliver volatile anesthesia.
The Center for Devices and Radiological Health, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) launched a collaborative initiative with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to gain a better understanding of ventilators that are used during national emergencies. This initiative was intended to test reliability of ventilator devices stored long term in the CDC Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) and also used by the Department of Defense. These ventilators are intended to be used by trained operators to provid...

This unit will provide a brief introduction to analytical method validation as applied to cellular analysis by flow cytometry. In addition, the unit will provide practical procedures for three different types of validation. The first is a limited validation protocol that is applicable for research settings and non-regulated laboratories. The second is validation protocol that presents the minimum validation requ...
Robust clinical and analytical validation of human papillomavirus (HPV) tests is a pre-requisite for their use in cervical cancer screening given the transience of most high-risk HPV infections.
Optimal methods for communication skills training (CST) is an active area for research but the effect on communication performance in objective structured clinical examinations (OSCE) has not been so closely studied. Student role play (RP) for CST is common whilst volunteer simulated patient (SP) CST is cost-effective and provides authentic interactions. We assessed whether our volunteer SP CST improved OSCE performance compared to our previous RP strategy.
The development of new optical designs for intraocular lenses (IOL) is a major challenge for lens manufacturers, as postoperative patient satisfaction is difficult to assess a priori with new concepts. Until now, invasive clinical investigations were carried out for this purpose. In contrast, the simulated implantation of IOLs allows a risk-free determination of the achievable visual performance and a subjective evaluation of the visual impression of new optical concepts. For intraocular lens manufacturers,...
Team-based learning (TBL) is an educational strategy based on learning teams. Despite the advantages identified in the TBL literature, student perceptions must be better investigated using valid, reliable instruments. This study constructed and validated an instrument to evaluate student perceptions of the TBL method. Content and appearance assessment, construct validation and reliability analysis were performed. A total of 246 undergraduate nursing and medical students from a private institution in São Pa...
School refusal (SR) is considered as a clinical form of emotionally based school absenteeism related to the experience of strong negative emotions when attending school. However, there are no psychometrically sound measures specifically designed to assess SR. The aim of the present research was to develop and validate a multidimensional self-report measure of SR: the SChool REfusal EvaluatioN Scale (SCREEN) for adolescents.
BACKGROUND Nasal obstruction is the most common rhinologic complaint in ear, nose, and throat (ENT) clinical practice and septal deviation is the leading cause. The Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation (NOSE) scale is a brief, self-administered questionnaire that has been widely used to assess symptoms and quality of life related to nasal obstruction, and is commonly used in clinical outcome studies. The aim of this study was to undertake a clinical evaluation of a Polish translation and cross-cultural modi...
Urban development increases runoff temperatures from buildings and pavement, which can be harmful to aquatic life. However, our ability to predict runoff temperature as a function of land use is limited. This paper explores available tools for simulating runoff temperature with respect to brook trout (Salvelinus sp.), a sensitive species. The Minnesota Urban Heat Export Tool (MINUHET) and the Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) were applied to a 14.1 km portion of the Stroubles Creek watershed near Blacksbu...
Cardiac troponins are gold-standard biomarkers of myocardial injury. There is a need for validation of assays with higher availability and lower costs in veterinary medicine.
The Musculoskeletal Health Questionnaire (MSK-HQ) is a recently developed Patient Reported Outcome Measure for use across patients with musculoskeletal conditions. This study provides a validation of the MSK-HQ examining construct validity and reliability in inflammatory arthritis.
The clinical evaluation of a burn wound alone may not be adequate to predict the severity of the injury nor to guide clinical decision making. Infrared thermography provides information about soft tissue viability and has previously been used to assess burn depth. The objective of this study was to determine if temperature differences in burns assessed by infrared thermography could be used predict the treatment modality of either healing by re-epithelization, requiring skin grafts, or requiring amputations...
Clinical joint count assessment is important for detecting synovitis but its reliability is controversial. This study assessed the correlation of positron emission tomography (PET)-derived parameters in 68 joints with disease activity and compared the reliability of joint counts between PET/computed tomography (CT) and clinical assessment in rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Order validation is an important component of pharmacy services, where pharmacists review orders with a focus on error prevention. Interruptions are frequent and may contribute to a reduction in error detection, thus potential medication errors. However, studying such errors in practice is difficult. Simulation has potential to study these events.
A new rapid DNA solution, the RapidHIT ID, can accommodate two different sample cartridges, ACE, for the analysis of a single swab and EXT, for the analysis of DNA extracts. An efficient internal validation designed for low-throughput rapid DNA is described. An evaluation of the EXT sample cartridge is also described. Each cartridge generated profiles with sufficient data quality to meet CODIS eligibility in fewer than 120 min. The results exhibited 100% correlation when compared to conventional DNA typing...
Pharmacokinetics (PK) in Japanese healthy subjects were simulated for nine compounds using physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models parameterized with physicochemical properties, preclinical absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) data, and clinical PK data from non-Japanese subjects. For each dosing regimen, 100 virtual trials were simulated and predicted/observed ratios for C and AUC were calculated. As qualification criteria, it was pre-specified that over 80% of simulated t...
In surgical training, most assessment tools focus on advanced clinical decision-making or operative skill. Available tools often require significant investment of resources and time. A high stakes oral examination is also required to become board-certified in surgery. We developed Individual Clinical Evaluation (ICE) to evaluate intern-level clinical decision-making in a time- and cost-efficient manner, and to introduce the face-to-face evaluation setting.
Professor Larry Hench first reported that certain glasses are able to spontaneously bond to living bone in 1970. This discovery stimulated research into new kinds of bone-bonding materials. However, there were no guiding principles for this purpose, and many animals were sacrificed in the effort to establish them. The present authors proposed in 1991 that the bone-bonding capacity of a material could be evaluated by examining apatite formation on its surface in an acellular simulated body fluid (SBF), witho...
Recent advances in the field of electron cryomicroscopy (cryo-EM) have resulted in a rapidly increasing number of atomic models of biomacromolecules that have been solved using this technique and deposited in the Protein Data Bank and the Electron Microscopy Data Bank. Similar to macromolecular crystallography, validation tools for these models and maps are required. While some of these validation tools may be borrowed from crystallography, new methods specifically designed for cryo-EM validation are requir...
The Headstrong program, a pharmacy based men's mental health promotion program, was designed to enhance pharmacists' care of men with mental illness and addictions and was focused on six conditions. A simulated patient (SP) encounter on insomnia was used to evaluate pharmacist's performance as a part of the Headstrong program.
The VALidation of HPV GENoyping Tests (VALGENT) is an international initiative designed to validate HPV assays with genotyping capability. The VALGENT4 protocol differs from previous VALGENT installments as the sample collection medium is SurePath, and exclusively includes samples from women ≥30 years of age which is concordant with the majority of HPV primary screening guidelines. Here we present the protocol for the fourth installment of the VALGENT framework.
