Title: [abstract] SIMULATION, ACGME AND THE HYPERBARIC FELLOWSHIP.
Author: Stolp, BW; Taekman, JM; Hobbs, GW
Abstract: BACKGROUND: The ACGME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education) Fellowship in Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine is a 12-month program associated with ACGME accredited programs in emergency medicine, preventive medicine or anesthesiology. The required curriculum is an intensive course of study that is evaluated for its ability to satisfy the core ACGME competencies of patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism and systems-based practice. Instructional and assessment methods typically involve a variety of didactic formats, conferences, standardized patients, and role playing but have not utilized high fidelity simulation adapted for use in the hyperbaric chamber. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The Duke Hyperbaric Center is a large multiplace facility consisting of seven hypo/hyperbaric chambers. A Laerdal high fidelity SimMan (Wappingers Falls, NY) simulator was placed on a stretcher in a 3.20 M by 4.42 M multiplace chamber. The control computer cables were routed through the single medical lock to the outside. An Apple PowerBook G4 laptop computer affixed with an iSight camera (Cupertino, CA) and Vara Software Wirecast v.2.6.4 Software (London, UK) was utilized to capture audio and video of the training scenarios both inside and outside the chamber. Tasks are described Hobbs et. al. this meeting. Hyperbaric medicine interns, residents and staff were presented with a patient scenario then asked to evaluate and treat the “patient”. Audio and visual recordings of both the inside personnel as well as the chamber operator were obtained throughout the exercise for post exercise debrief and feedback. DISCUSSION: High fidelity simulation training has been used extensively as a training modality in order to improve safety in both the aerospace industry and for anesthesiology but has not been described before for use in hyperbaric fellowship training. Scenarios involve briefing, simulation and debriefing sessions and provide trainees a multidisciplinary experience that satisfies the majority of the ACGME requirements for teaching and implementation of the core competencies. High technology simulation exercises can be adapted to include hyperbaric technicians, nurses, and MDs as a method of education, task training and evaluation.
