German-Based Zyos Provides Audio/Video Recording Platform – SESAM 2016 Exhibitor Video Series Part 1

zyos recording system medical simulation

Earlier this year HealthySimulation.com was on hand at SESAM 2016 (Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine) to meet with several European-based vendors. We met with German-based Zyos to learn more about their unique A/V recording tools for healthcare simulation. While currently not available in North America, the Zyos DSoneMicro system enables simulation programs to provide affordable video recording and debriefing of scenarios. Check out our video interview below:

About Zyos



Zyos is a supplier of mobile audio-video equipment in the medical emergency simulation who specializes in the development and manufacture of debriefing systems as well for the preclinical as for intra clinical use. With their mobile debriefing system DSonePortable and associated DSoneCapture software, they provide a mobile standard system which is able to suit any specific requirements and framework conditions thanks to its broad range of options. Their high-quality systems were all developed and designed in-house. Their technicians will help you in person to ensure perfect operation of all components, and will provide on-site service. And if there are any questions, contact them any time – they’ll be there.

About DSoneCapture:

The Zyos debriefing system DSone is always bundled with DSoneCapture software. In its current version, our software permits recording and playback of three camera signals which are displayed as quad split on the monitor. In the fourth quad split window users may display the patient monitor of the respective simulator. By feeding the VGA signal into the AV system we can integrate any patient monitor – regardless of your available simulators or the patient monitoring applications you are using. Just as we keep developing the DSone system, future versions of our DSoneCapture software will also be enhanced by various functions which will facilitate your work even more.

New Paper: Human Factors in the Design of Medical Simulation Tools

alromi

Now one for those designing medical simulators! From Procedia Manufacturing Volume 3, 2015, Pages 288–292 comes “Human Factors in the Design of Medical Simulation Tools” written by Norah AlRomi from the Software Engineering Department at Prince Sultan University:

Abstract

This paper describes the human factor design issues relevant to medical simulation systems. Decision making in medical domains is an increasingly complex task that involves a number of stakeholders, sub-specialties and technologies. Medical simulation creates a lifelike situation for individuals to practice decision-making and procedural activities in a safe environment for the patients and professionals where it involves simulated human patients, emergency response and simulated animation. Evidence suggests that medical simulation improves the effectiveness, safety, and efficiency in health care services. Moreover, it has been shown to consistently deliver significant value to the organization, staff, or students in decision-making. Although medical simulation provided ideal approaches for addressing healthcare issues, the number of successful software implementation and development is relatively small compared with other established engineering disciplines, such as the manufacturing industry. Software quality models in particular offer the opportunity to systematically assess the level of compliance of software systems with industry standards. In addition, applying software quality models increase the customer satisfaction and decrease the quality cost.

Google Now Provides 10GB File Transfers Through Email

 google tools

Anyone running a medical simulation program should consider the “web 2.0” benefits of free Google products, which go far beyond the basics of their amazing email platform.  Google also provides 5 GBs of online cloud space, amazing office docuementation tools like spreadsheet, word processing, slide presentations and even online surveys.  At our sim center we utilized google’s free calendar system on two seperate accounts (one view-only for faculty, and one edit-only for center administration).  For a complete list of free Google Tools, click here.

CNet just shared that Google has taken the free services one step further by now allowing gmail / google drive users to send 10GB files through email – which is just unheard of. Learn more by reading the full article.
