MATADOR – Medical Advanced Training in an Artificial Distributed Environment Ragnhild Halvorsrud, Applied Media Technology Telenor Research and Development
Contents: Multitrauma accidents Emergency care in Nordic countries - the BEST project Why use simulators? Existing simulators The DOVRE platform MATADOR Goal/outline/time plan Medical content Current status Comparison MATADOR partners Conclusion
Multitrauma accidents strikes many young, healthy, and ablebodied persons take many lifes Age < 35 years: the most frequent cause of death can often be effectively treated Most errors occur in the initial assessment phase.
In the emergency room many groups of medical personnel time pressure rapid technological changes high staff turnover chaotic learning situation No room for learning by doing !!
Hospitals in Nordic countries countries with long distances harsh weather conditions sparse population many small hospitals no national standard for trauma care
The BEST project The BEST team visits rural hospitals. 1. Theory based on actual cases. 2. Training session are videorecorded. 3. Observation, review and feedback. Success factors: Courses at each hospital Immediate feedback, focus on team performance
Why use simulators in medicine? Limited access to real training situations. Simulation provides a way to gain competence in emergency situations that seldom occur. Reduce the cost of training surgeons. Reducing the risk to patients.

DOVRE A tool for distributing 3D- graphics, sound and video Developed from scratch using C++ Multi-platform: win32 & Unix (Linux/IRIX) API for creating distributed virtual worlds (Distributed Object-oriented Virtual Reality Environment)
The EduAction project using VR to enhance collaborative learning developed for pupils in the secondary school pupils take the role of interplanetary explorers, looking for planets suitable for new colonies Corpus Callosum, the disaster-ridden planet
The DISCOVER project Distributed training environment for the offshore and maritime sectors
Haptic devices Haptic – related to the sense of touch Haptic displays - electromechanical device that deliver force sensation PHANToM premium to be integrated in the MATADOR prototype
MATADOR The goal is to develop and evaluate a simulation environment for managing acutely traumatized patients. Target group: both students and physicians. Proposal was presented to Nordunet mill. NOK from Nordunet2.
Project plan Project period: July 2000 – June 2002 Total # manhours: 10200
Scenario walk-through Description of accident, organ injuries, etc. wrong answer Time-out to study procedure CT/MR/Xray Decisio n- making Feedback Scenario i i = [1,3] CT/MR/Xray Decisio n- making Time-out to study procedure
Pilot scenario 7 year old girl on bicycle, hit by car Unconcious when primary physician arrives, no immediate signs of external injuries 10 min: patient becomes concious, but weak 40 min: unstable vital signs, helicopter arrives 60 min: during transportation, patient develop spasms 65 min: respiration and circulation stop as helicopter arrives at hospital. Attempting heart/lung rescue. Conditions interpreted as head injury. Further treatment stopped.

MATADOR versus other simulators A multiuser system – training as a team Advanced 3D- technology MATADOR session manager
MATADOR partners: Faculty of Medicine, University of Umeå Multimedic AS The Norwegian Medical Association InterMedia, University of Oslo Medical Faculty, University of Oslo Boxer Technologies AS Telenor R&D
Concluding remarks Nordic countries: similarities in culture, language, and health care systems A joint Nordic effort would be of substantial benefit Towards a Nordic standard? URL
