Abstract

Anesthesia Information Management System (AIMS) allows automatic importing real-time vital signs from physiological monitors to replace anesthesiologists’ traditional manual record keeping. It has been increasingly implemented in operating theater to provide an automated anesthesia record. At least 84% of all residency programs are expected to adopt AIMS between 2018 and 2020 (Stol, Ehrenfeld, & Epstein, 2014). Yet despite the increasing popularity of AIMS, only a handful of studies have examined the impact of automated record keeping on anesthesiologists’ performance (i.e. vigilance, situation awareness (SA) and mental workload). For example, various studies had examined the effect of automated record keeping on anesthesiologists’ vigilance but produced mixed results (Allard, Dzwonczyk, Yablok, Block, & McDonald, 1995; Kay and Neal, 1986; Loeb, 1995; Weinger, Herndon, & Gaba, 1997; Yablok,1990).The current study compared the effects of two recordkeeping methods (automated vs. manual) on anesthesiologists’ vigilance, SA and mental workload.
