Jess Gillard Publishes a technical brief in the Journal of Medical Devices

Jess 2013 Jessica Gillard authored a technical brief titled ‘Exploring Melodic Structure to Increase Heterogeneity of Auditory Alarm Sets in Medical Devices’,  published in the Journal of Medical Devices. This paper explores the melodic structure of auditory alarms used in hospitals and offers new, detailed information on alarm confusions that can help inform future research on melodic alarm design.  The design of auditory alarms in medical devices is a new area of study for the lab, but one with significant potential for improving the delivery of health care services.
