Arena Tech looks beyond the novelty of emerging technology and instead, seeks to understand how these advancements might allow surgical teams to train for stress and performance in new ways. This video demonstration took place at the Cleveland Clinic Innovations Summit to highlight how 360 degree video can be a valuable tool for training awareness in the operating room and decision-making under pressure in cardiac surgery.WATCH VIDEO
Like any high-stress team environment, surgical teams are affected by energy levels. Just like in the surgical theater, in jazz music the “energy” of a song or score influences outcomes, focus, and connection.Watch Video
Every team culture has a “sacred space” to prepare for, and decompress from, the pressure of performance. These physical areas are vital to morale and cultivating team cohesion. In the creative arts, a “Green Room. In sport, a “Locker Room”. In the military, a “Team Room”.Download Case Study
Our work with surgical teams focuses on specific tools and rituals that can be implemented for immediate cultural change. These “performance practices” vary from hospital to hospital. Yet the surgical “timeout” is a universally required mechanism that we find has usually evolved into what we deem as an “exercise.” View video to learn more.Download Case Study
Ethos is Greek for “character”. Extraordinary cultures in sport, the miltiary, and the performing arts are rooted in a clear Ethos that reminds team members of the sacred nature of their work. Despite the rare mission of modern health care, the tempo of medical operations often makes it easy to overlook the sacred nature of this work.Download case study
Part of the aim of our Practice is to compile deep insights in High Performance MedicineTM that allow hospitals and surgical teams to build smarter training & development programs to keep practitioners healthy for longer careers. By outfitting frontline staff with a sensor, like the Biovotion Everion sensor pictured here, we are able to do just that: collect unique insights & physiological data on heart rate, heart rate variability, and respiratory rate, among others.
