When it comes to home fire safety, we do a lot to protect our families, like having smoke alarms and practicing escape plans with home fire drills. But did you know studies have shown that children and older adults often do not wake up to many commonly-used home smoke alarms?
We need your help so we can solve this problem. We are doing a research study with children and older adults to compare their reactions between a standard smoke alarm tone against our custom voice recorded smoke alarms.
If you have a child between the ages of 5-12 years or are an adult between the ages of 60-84 years, you can be a participant in this important study.
WHAT TO EXPECT
• This study lasts for two separate nights (about 4 to 6 hours each night, depending on how quickly the participant falls asleep).
• Each night, the participant will experience two different types of alarms
The study is done in the comfortable private sleep rooms at the Sleep Research Center of Nationwide Children's Hospital, located at 83 Outerbelt Street in Reynoldsburg, across from Nationwide Chidren's Close to Home East location on East Broad Street.
Each family will be compensated $150 upon completion of the study.
Participants must be children between the age of 5-12 years or adults between the age of 60-84 years. Participants must not be taking medications on the day of the study that may affect their sleep or awakening patterns, such as some behavior medications and sleep aids.
