About Samsun Lampotang

Dr. Samsun Lampotang is a Professor of Anesthesiology in the division of Research. He is also the Director of the Center for Simulation, Safety and Advanced Learning Technology at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. He received his PhD in mechanical engineering at the University of Florida, College of Engineering. His research interests are in simulation in healthcare, healthcare equipment, and the promotion of patient safety through enhancement of learning and improved equipment design.

Dr. Lampotang is part of the UF team that conceived the patented technology behind the Human Patient Simulator. His overarching goal is patient safety via a two-pronged approach: (a) training clinicians to use existing processes, equipment and drugs better via efficacious training, including simulation and (b) improving existing processes, devices, and drugs by analyzing and redesigning them or modifying how they are used. He innovates, builds, evaluates, and teaches using simulators and simulations across the entire physicality-virtuality continuum to help clinicians enhance affective, cognitive, and psychomotor skills and understand and use existing resources better. He improves devices and processes by analyzing, redesigning, and evaluating them, sometimes with mathematical models and/or simulators. He has a track record of invention, technology transfer, and commercialization from UF to industry: Hamilton Max transport ventilator, METI/CAE Human Patient Simulator, TMS cooling football pads, Accuryn urine output monitor, and Centese chest tube drainage system. He has worked with clinicians and researchers from fields other than anesthesiology, including neurosurgery, computer science, surgery, and urology in the areas of simulation, devices, and patient safety.
