Check-6 Chief Medical Advisor
David “Super Dave” Wassell, MD
From Fighter Pilot to renowned Orthopedic Surgeon and Chief of Staff at Baptist Health Stuttgart, meet David “Super Dave” Wassell. Dr. Wassell has successfully combined two very unique and challenging careers, giving him the experience and expertise to advise and consult with Check-6 clients. In fact he soloed on his 16th birthday and earned his license the following year. “Super Dave” entered the Air Force Academy, majoring in military history. Following in his father’s footsteps, he became a fighter pilot, as an Instructor on the T-37.. He then flew with the Arkansas Air National Guard in Ft. Smith with the Flying Razorbacks, piloting the F-16, and flew combat missions over Bosnia as part of Operation Decisive Edge in 1996.
Super Dave decided to leave the cockpit and head to medical school, becoming an orthopedic surgeon. He is the Chief of Staff at Baptist Health Stuttgart in Arkansas. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Check-6 medical team. Close to $17 billion is spent on medical mistakes every year in the US, and some 100,000 people die as a result. He feels the medical field and community desperately need the cultural experience, knowledge and checklists that Check-6 can bring to help avoid mistakes and save lives.
Intubation checklist performance has positive impact on patient care
Timely performance of life-saving critical procedures is a cornerstone of Emergency Medicine. In many cases Endotracheal intubation, a fundamental airway management skill, is often performed without luxury of time for preparation of patients or equipment. This, combined with the technical difficulty of the procedure itself can translate into a high-risk situation resulting in critical medical errors.
Set in a high-fidelity simulation environment with a difficult airway, use of a checklist allowed operators to move approximately three (3) times faster to meet airway related critical actions. Participating residents unanimously agreed that this checklist had a favorable impact on patient care and strongly suggested the incorporation of checklists into selected medical procedures.
