Save, don't kill: SLU pediatrician to develop educational video game for training military physician
Date:7/8/2014

shock-like look along with dropping vital signs," he said. "If a patient needs IV fluids and the user does exactly that, the patient's appearance and vital signs will improve. If the user fails to do the right things, the patient's condition deteriorates."

The game scores the user's performance, including actions and their timeliness, which can be used to assess and give feedback to the user.

Gerard said the military embraces the idea of using gaming to train their personnel, since they tend to have a younger work force that connect well with gaming.

"Studies in other fields have shown that if you add video gaming to traditional methods of training, on average, people perform 10 to 20 percent better than those who don't receive video game training," he said.

One of the potential uses of this game would be to provide quick training to military physicians prior to deploying on humanitarian missions across the world.

Gerard and his team will visit three military sites next year to conduct user testing and initial validation study of how well these games work. A wide ranging set of users medical students, residents and experienced pediatric emergency room physicians will play the game, and based on the feedback Gerard receives the team will fix any issues that come up.

"The military also has a unique challenge in that they have situations where physicians with little or no pediatric training are deployed into situations where they have to take care of pediatric patients," he said.

"The military has to find ways to quickly train these physicians to take care of pediatric-specific cases. A game-based format is a good way to do this for many reasons, like standardization of training, fewer instructors, just-in-time capabilities, and easy identification of individual learner needs."
