WHYY's The Pulse Interviews Keith S. Karn, PhD

Could intensive care units be redesigned to function more like cockpits? That’s the question Maiken Scott, host of WHYY’s The Pulse, asked Keith S. Karn, PhD — and it’s the question he and a group of colleagues addressed in a pilot study explained in his blog post, Why Can’t an ICU Be More Like a Cockpit?. In the piece that aired on WHYY, NPR’s Philadelphia affiliate, Keith explained that the aviation industry was able to streamline the flow of information in cockpits, and he believes that hospitals could learn lessons from that process.
