Developed to promote the design of safe, effective, and usable medical devices, Handbook of Human Factors in Medical Device Design provides a single convenient source of authoritative information to support evidence-based design and evaluation of medical device user interfaces using rigorous human factors engineering principles. It offers guidance on user-centric design supported by discussions of design issues, case studies, and examples. The book sets the foundation with coverage of fundamental topics such as aligning the interactive nature of medical devices to the expected use environments ranging from hospitals and ambulances to patients’ homes, drawing on anthropometric and biomechanical data to ensure that designs match the intended users’ bodies and physical abilities, and conducting usability tests and other evaluations to ensure that devices perform as intended. It then focuses on applied design issues, offering guidance on the design of specific types of devices and designing devices for particular use environments. Adapted in part from established design standards and conventions, the design guidance presented in this work distills professional judgment extracted from the contributing authors’ years of experience in applied analysis and design. Written in true handbook style, each chapter stands alone and includes tables, illustrations, and cross references, allowing you to quickly find the exact information you need. Most chapters begin with a general introduction to the selected topic, followed by the presentation of general and special design considerations and then specific, numbered design guidelines. The book also presents a listing of resources, literature, and website references. It not only focuses on the human factors issues that arise when developing medical devices, it supplies the necessary guidance to resolve them.

The first edition of Handbook of Human Factors and Ergonomics in Health Care and Patient Safety took the medical and ergonomics communities by storm with in-depth coverage of human factors and ergonomics research, concepts, theories, models, methods, and interventions and how they can be applied in health care. Other books focus on particular human factors and ergonomics issues such as human error or design of medical devices or a specific application such as emergency medicine. This book draws on both areas to provide a compendium of human factors and ergonomics issues relevant to health care and patient safety. The second edition takes a more practical approach with coverage of methods, interventions, and applications and a greater range of domains such as medication safety, surgery, anesthesia, and infection prevention. New topics include: work schedules error recovery telemedicine workflow analysis simulation health information technology development and design patient safety management Reflecting developments and advances in the five years since the first edition, the book explores medical technology and telemedicine and puts a special emphasis on the contributions of human factors and ergonomics to the improvement of patient safety and quality of care. In order to take patient safety to the next level, collaboration between human factors professionals and health care providers must occur. This book brings both groups closer to achieving that goal.

Patient safety is an overriding concern in all surgery and particularly in plastic surgery, where many of the procedures are elective, but information about patient safety has traditionally been scattered throughout the literature. Patient Safety in Plastic Surgery covers all of the essential patient safety topics in one valuable resource. Timely and practical, the book places special emphasis on clinical issues. It begins with the safety concerns most often identified by plastic surgeons, such as DVTs, surgical site infections, sleep apnea, and anesthesia safety. Beyond these obvious problems are major safety issues that often fall off the radar. These are critical to patient comfort and safety, but they do not always receive the attention they merit, such as hypothermia, nausea and vomiting, proper patient positioning, and screening and management of medical co-morbidities. Other important chapters focus on the identification and avoidance of patients who are poor psychological candidates for surgery and the legal aspects of safety. The book is edited by V. Leroy Young, a well-known plastic surgeon, and Richard Botney, a noted anesthesiologist. They offer readers the advantage of their combined experience along with that of a multidisciplinary group of experts on the different topics covered.

As medical devices become even more intricate, concerns about efficacy, safety, and reliability continue to be raised. Users and patients both want the device to operate as specified, perform in a safe manner, and continue to perform over a long period of time without failure. Following in the footsteps of the bestselling second edition, Reliable Design of Medical Devices, Third Edition shows you how to improve reliability in the design of advanced medical devices. Reliability engineering is an integral part of the product development process and of problem-solving activities related to manufacturing and field failures. Mirroring the typical product development process, the book is organized into seven parts. After an introduction to the basics of reliability engineering and failures, it takes you through the concept, feasibility, design, verification and validation, design transfer and manufacturing, and field activity phases. Topics covered include Six Sigma for design, human factors, safety and risk analysis, and new techniques such as accelerated life testing (ALT) and highly accelerated life testing (HALT). What’s New in This Edition Updates throughout, reflecting changes in the field An updated software development process Updated hardware test procedures A new layout that follows the product development process A list of deliverables needed at the end of each development phase Incorporating reliability engineering as a fundamental design philosophy, this book shares valuable insight from the author’s more than 35 years of experience. A practical guide, it helps you develop a more effective reliability engineering program—contributing to increased profitability, more satisfied customers, and less risk of liability.

Within developed countries, the elderly population--people aged 75 and older--is expanding faster than its younger counterpart. This change in demographics creates a need for understanding ergonomics with respect to the aged user in the design of products, transportation, safety, leisure activity aids, and work and home environments. The Handbook of Human Factors and the Older Adult provides a comprehensive sourcebook for information on the interface of gerontology and ergonomics. The Handbook discusses practical applications, theory, and research in this dynamic area. This book is divided into two sections; Section I covers how the neuropsychology and physiology of aging relates to issues of human factors, while Section II addresses applications of human factor research to the older population and specific environments. Key Features * Synthesizes information from gerontology and human factors/ergonomics * Covers a wide range of domains--job, home, health, safety, and transportation * Discusses neuropsychology and physiology in relation to ergonomics * Contains topics of interest to both the scientist and the engineer/designer
