OBJECTIVE ASSESSMENT METRICS FOR CENTRAL LINE SIMULATORS: AN EXPLORATION OF CAUSAL FACTORS

Abstract: The Dynamic Haptic Robotic Trainer (DHRT) was developed to minimize the up to 39% of adverse effects experienced by patients during Central Venous Catheterization (CVC) by standardizing CVC training, and provide automated assessments of performance. Specifically, this system was developed to replace manikin trainers that only simulate one patient anatomy and require a trained preceptor to evaluate the trainees’ performance. While the DHRT system provides automated feedback, the utility of this system with real-world scenarios and expertise has yet to be thoroughly investigated. Thus, the current study was developed to determine the validity of the current objective assessment metrics incorporated in the DHRT system through expert interviews. The main findings from this study are that experts do agree on perceptions of patient case difficulty, and that characterizations of patient case difficulty is based on anatomical characteristics, multiple needle insertions, and prior catheterization.
