Improving simulation-based medical education in pediatric resuscitation: Real-time feedback and visual attention

Resuscitation teams should be well-trained in both technical and non-technical skills to provide appropriate healthcare during cardiopulmonary resuscitations (CPR). In this project, we collect pilot data on the use of two medical feedback devices, one for chest compression quality and the other one for ventilations, in relation to participants’ visual attention, expertise, mental workload, and CPR performance. The expected results have the potential to identify beneficial attentional processes and thereby improve medical education in pediatric resuscitation.
