Neurodynamic Organization presentations
Team Neurodynamics in Healthcare: Example 1 - Task
This video illustrated the dynamics of individual (taskwork) and shared (teamwork) neurodynamic information as the team inserts a breathing tube (intubates) into a simulated patient. The first, in the top panel, shows how the anesthesiologist (AN) and Circulating Nurse (CN) dynamically change their neurodynamic organization with the different demands of the tasks. The Scrub Nurse (SN) doesn’t show those fluctuations as she is standing by waiting until she might be needed to assist. The second is the appearance of mutual (shared) information between the AN and the CN during the intubation procedure. This information sharing is not present in the AN-SN or CN-SN pairings suggesting it is a reflection of active team activities.
Team Neurodynamics in Healthcare: Example 2 - Task
The simulation team in this video is treating a patient with a Benzodiazepine overdose. The video picks up where the team has decided to ventilate the patient by intubating him to improve blood oxygen levels. The changes in the overall team Neurodynamic Information are shown in the top left graph. Also shown in the bottom left graph are the changes in the turn-taking behavior of the team’s speech where high levels represent a consistent pattern of speech. These two data streams are the start of a multimodal modeling sequence to establish relationships between neurodynamics, speech and other physiologic measures.
Team Neurodynamics in Healthcare: Example 2 - Debrief
An entire debriefing session is shown for the simulation team shown in the dashboard above where the Instructor was fitted with an EEG headset as well as the three participants. The displays show the neurodynamic information of the team, of the Instructor and of the three individuals as different topics of the case are discussed. Note: Observe the early increased neurodynamic organization of the Instructor as she established the rhythm of the Debriefing. Also note the apparent importance of the discussion (as evidenced by the change in speech flow and neurodynamic organization) in the first half of the debriefing as they discussed different starting assumptions and treatment options. A detailed description of the case can be found at the link below.
