Impact of flow disruptions in the delivery room.
The goal of this study was to identify the impact of flow disruptions during neonatal resuscitation and to determine their association with key process and outcome measures. Delivery-room resuscitations of neonates less 32 weeks gestational age were video recorded for observation. Results showed that flow disruptions occurred frequently during neonatal resuscitation and recommendations included measuring flow disruptions as a feasible method to assess the impact of human factors in the delivery room and to identify modifiable factors and practices to improve patient care.
