analyze this
"Analyze this"
  • Groups of trained professionals workng in their real role (Nurses, MD‘s)
  • Working on a complex task (cardiopulmonary resuscitation of a witnessed cardiac arrest)
  • in a controlled environment (simulator setting, video)
  • General goal is to identify factors of collaboration that influence performance

thinking time in group process research
Thinking „time“ in group process research
  • Time-related task analysis – e.g. Hierarchical task analysis
  • What aspects of time?
      • e.g. Use a „checklist of temporal concept“
  • Frequency
  • Rate
  • Duration
  • Proportional duration
  • Sequence/Simultaneity
  • Temporal location
  • Temporal patterning(regular/irregular)
  • Rhythms
  • Trends
  • Cycles
  • Coupled series of events
  • Functionally coupled sequences
  • Entrainment

time related aspects of cardiopulmonary resuscitation task
Time-related aspects of cardiopulmonary resuscitation task
  • act fast– rapid onset
  • give continous support – no interruptions
  • ventilation:cardiac massage: 15:2 ratio
  • cardiac massage: rhythm 100/minute
  • set of three defibrillations
    • shortest possible interval between shocks
    • but wait to load andwait and check
  • epinephrine every three to five minutes
  • repeatcycle (cpr/defi/epi)
  • Stop treatment after xx minutes

time related coordination requirements of cpr
Time-related coordination requirements of CPR
  • organize help fast
  • integrate new members that arrive at different times
  • present members adapt to incoming persons
    • especially if newcomers are more experienced /higher status
  • smooth synchronization between ventilaton / cardiac massage / defibrillation

adaptation to incoming group members
Adaptation to incoming group members

Experimental conditions:

  • « All present »: 3 physicians present from the beginning (n=49 groups)
  • « Reality, with incoming members »: One physician present, calls others for help when emergency starts (n=50 groups)

effects of adaptation to incoming members
Effects of adaptation to incoming members
  • Does not delay onset of cardiac massage
  • Delays first defibrillation 40 seconds**
  • Takes the group 55*** seconds longer to complete the first cycle of the algorithm
  • In the first three minutes, patient gets 16% less cardiovascular support (**), this is about half a minute
  • Decreases the likelihood of someone taking the lead from 95% to 70%(**)
  • If there is leadership in groups with incoming members, no differences in cardiovascular support over the first three minutes

effect of adaptation to incoming high status member
Effect of adaptation to incoming high status member
  • Leadership is handed over to the resident
  • Directive leadership of resident should enhance performance
    • If measured for the whole phase 2: ns.
  • Critical time-slot: First 30 seconds after arrival
    • Directive leadership first 30 seconds: r= .522* with performance
  • Task analysis helped to identify critical time slot

study 3 information transmission to incoming members
Study 3: Information transmission to incoming members

study 3 studying events in groups
Study 3: Studying events in groups
  • Incoming members need to be informed about patient, earlier treatment, etc.
  • Hypotheses:
    • Content of information influences transmission accuracy
    • How the information is generated influences accuracy
  • Identify ‚information-generating events‘ in groups
    • "information generation acts" (communication, actions)
    • "attentional focus during generation"
  • relate to accuracy

information transmission to incoming members

under construction

Information transmission to incoming members
  • overall, 16.3 % of the information transmitted is inaccurate
  • depends on
    • content of the information
      • if about defibrillation or medication: 51% inaccuracy
    • circumstances of information generation
      • if defibrillation or medication and long episode (+ 1SD) = 76% inaccuracy
      • attentional focus of group on information during generation does not influence accuracy

based on the analysis of 386 information transmission episodes, estimated by a binomial multi-level model. Bogenstätter et al., in prep.

studying time aspects in group processes without being a time researcher
Studying time-aspects in group processes without being a time-researcher
  • Time-sensitive task-analysis or: know where time is important
    • e.g. identify specific events: interruptions; transmission of information
      • related events vs studying the whole process
    • e.g. study specific phases
      • time-slots vs studying the whole process
  • to be continued
