How Human Factors Lead to Medical Device Adverse Events

A nicely written article on "Human Factors."

How Human Factors Lead to Medical Device Adverse Events « QD Syringe Systems™:

"The complexity and diversity of medical devices used simultaneously contribute to human factors errors. A key objective of human factors in medical device design is to enhance the likelihood of good performance under less-than-ideal conditions. To minimize human factors problems, devices should be designed according to users’ needs, abilities, limitations, and work environments. This includes the design of the device’s user interface, which includes controls, displays, software, labels, and instructions—anything the user may need to operate and maintain a device."
