diagnostic peritoneal lavage
Diagnostic Peritoneal Lavage
  • One of the Core Skills taught in ATLS® to ~ 20,000 students/yr to diagnose presence of blood in abdomen
  • Traditionally taught on animal model (pig or goat)
  • Mannequin (Traumaman™ ) recently approved as alternative

simpl features
SimPL FEATURES
  • cathSIM Hardware linked with graphics interface
  • Low Cost (<$10,000)
  • Can be run from laptop

dpl validation study design
DPL Validation StudyDesign
  • 40 Third Year Medical Students who were all true novices (never done one, never seen one)
  • Divided into two groups of twenty
  • Initial 30 item Test covering basic knowledge of the procedure, it’s indications, interpretation of results and possible complications given prior to any education.

  • Students also asked to rate current comfort level, perceived difficulty of the procedure, and familiarity of procedure on a 5 item Likert scale
  • Both groups given standard Didactic lecture on DPL procedure

DPL Validation StudyDesign (Cont)

  • Final 30 item test given to test knowledge of procedure, indications, and potential complications
  • Comfort level, perceived difficulty ,and familiarity with steps reassessed.
  • Surgeon evaluators provided assessment of students current ability to perform a DPL if called upon to do so tomorrow following this training

summary of results dpl validation study
Summary of Results DPL Validation Study
  • Knowledge increased significantly in both groups over baseline (p <.0001) Excellent Content Validity
  • Students self reported level of comfort increased in both groups (p<.0001)but more so in the Simulator trained group (p<0.01)

summary of results dpl validation study cont
Summary of Results DPL Validation Study – Cont.
  • Students who trained on the SimPL had significantly increased performance on site selection (p<0.0001) and understanding of the Seldinger technique (p<0.002)
  • Evaluators had greater faith in ability of Simulator trained students to perform procedure after training (90% vs 60%)

conclusions
Conclusions
  • SimPL compares favorably with the Pig for teaching novices DPL.
  • SimPL is superior to the pig for teaching of human anatomy/site selection, and the Seldinger technique for DPL

Improved Graphics
  • More Content
  • Incorporate Input from end users
  • More Validation
  • Expansion to other procedures that use Seldinger technique
  • Seek Open Source Hardware so Software can be distributed for free
