At least two representatives of the partner institutions took part in the workshop.
Due to the requirements of the Medical Center of the Medical Academy, the program was updated. The topic discussed on 12.02.2019 was the ECG. The Dr. Azhybaev's lab instruction was used as the basis for working with the ECG device. The participants were motivated by the fact that each additional partner institution will receive an identical device system as KSMA as the part of the Cloud Lab. Thus, it is possible to train the students on site and to carry out several successive experiments. The participants, divided into three groups, made proposals to supplement / improve the present internship instruction sent to Ms Arzybaeva.
In addition to the ECG device, the participants tested the infusion pumps and the biomonitor. No materials were created for this.
Each group must elaborate lab instructions for ECG, ventilalator and Ultrasound scanner. The group 1 has sent their minutes for elaborating the labs. The other two groups must send their minutes until 18.02.19.
Die Lab instructions must be elaborated. The deadline for submission will be discussed and set by the project coordinators meeting on 18.02.19.
On 13.02.2019, the ultrasound and the ventilator were examined in detail.
The ultrasound device was explained in more detail by a doctor who works with this device at the Medical Academy. The participants worked on the device themselves and worked out tasks which they would like to work with their students and which should be included in an lab instruction. It was found that installation of a DICOM interface (€ 980) would allow anonymized images of patients in a Cloud to be made available to all partners.
The ventilator was introduced by Azat Botaliev in its features. An anesthesiologist from the KSMA explained the use of the device in practice. Participants found that the ventilator is not related to medical or healthcare information because no data can be exported. It is only possible to transfer the image of the monitor to another screen, e.g. to transmit to the control center a monitoring station.
The participants discussed setting up a Cloud Lab. With this cloud lab, whose server KSUCTA is to operate, all partners can work on an equal footing. Here are the internship instructions to be set as well as the pictures, the e.g. were recorded with the ultrasound machine for cases of interest in teaching. It was discussed and agreed on that KSMA experts should take instructional videos to work with the Kyr-Medu devices, particularly on ultrasound and endoscopy and of course other devices too.
The module, which includes the equipment, is called "Получение и обработка сигнала и изображения", takes place in the 5th semester and has 8 credits, including 2 credits for the practice.
Part of the lab (ECG) can be organized by each partner university on its own responsibility. The internships with the other devices have to be done at the KSMA. This requires free access to the devices. There was a lot of discussion about the possibilities of using the devices by the non-Bishkek based partners. Since the travel and subsistence costs have to be borne by the students and lecturers themselves, a one-week stay, as originally planned, is not feasible. It has been suggested that a one-day field trip to Bishkek be made. The students should be divided into two groups and each work with the ultrasound device for half a day and half an day with the endoscope and possibly the respirator or the pumps. Each partner university should name the Medical Academy the time and number of students and then have free access to the equipment and adequate support from the doctors working with the equipment.
The sustainability of the KyrMedu laboratory after the project ends in April 2019 was discussed. Here, contracts between the partners are certainly necessary.
Another ERASMUS + application should be submitted.
The situation that the KSMA has inventoried the devices at their facility and uses them in patient operation has been criticized. The devices are teaching devices and may only be used in the sense of teaching. Of course, medical students have to learn about patients.
The Medical Academy (Director Dr. Iskakov) confirmed that they can not use the safety tester. It was therefore proposed to submit an application to the KSMA for the implementation of the device to KSUCTA. It should be checked whether this may also make sense for the biomonitor and the calibration device for the Ventilator.
