The Bromance of Morton and Mendelssohn – Music and Medicine Research to Improve Patient Care and Safety
Thursday, May 26, 2022 at 11:00 – 12:00 P.M.
Location: Engineering East Room 303C
Dr. Joseph Schlesinger
Associate Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology and Division of Critical Care Medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, and Adjunct Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Clinicians depend on pulse oximetry and auditory medical alarms to monitor patients and improve patient safety. However, alarms can be fatiguing, uninformative, and nonactionable. Music perception and cognition research can inform alarm development to ameliorate alarm fatigue and improve patient monitoring in a cognitively demanding environment.
