International Simulation Data Registry (ISDR)



Watch this introduction session and learn more
about the ISDR and how it can be leveraged! 


The International Simulation Data Registry (ISDR) collects and archives standardized data derived from simulation-based educational activities at various institutions throughout the World.  Our purposes in this is threefold:


  1. Enhancement of the simulation community’s efficacy in translating proven educational methods into standard practice.
  2. Enhancement of the efficiency of simulation-based translational research.
  3. Provision of ongoing site-specific educational and quality benchmarking data to improve programmatic performance.

The registry currently involves 32 centers from around the world.  Cases eligible for entry include:

  1. Pulseless Cardiac Arrest (Pulseless Ventricular Tachycardia, Ventricular Fibrillation, Pulseless Electrical Activity, Asystole)
  2. Malignant Hyperthermia
  3. Difficult Airway

A copy of our current Data Definitions Manual can be downloaded here.  All cardiac arrest metrics are comparable (after conversion) with American Heart Association-Get With The Guidelines Registry data.  A document describing this conversion process can be downloaded here.
