Keeping the remote expert informed: Designing a mediated communication tool for trauma resuscitation
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
We have designed and developed a mobile prototype that sup- ports a remote trauma surgeon that has been given the task to guide a trauma resuscitation at a local hospital. The design is based on field studies of trauma resuscitations, and on using different probes during trauma training sessions. The proto- type was tested in a trauma training session and evaluated in contextual interviews. The design focuses on what informa- tion that the remote trauma surgeon needs in order to support the trauma team and how the information should be presented in order to enhance situation awareness. Our results show that a consideration of the elements in the environment that add to situation awareness can open up for easier inclusion of mo- bile technology. We show the importance to design for the whole flow of information to achieve acceptance of the de- sign among future users.
