Quantifying the impact of visual distraction on psychomotor skills performance using eye-tracking

Neonatal positive pressure ventilation is the most important part of successful neonatal resuscitation and could potentially reduce 40% of interpartum-related neonatal deaths in countries where standardized resuscitation programs have not been established yet.

Our previous findings suggest a high level of distraction during neonatal bag-mask ventilation. This projects explores how harmful this distraction is for the ventilation quality and reasons why providers get distracted.
