Improving the Performance of Residents in Pediatric Resuscitation with Frequent Simulated Codes.

Glob Pediatr Health. 2020;7:2333794X20970010

Authors: Doymaz S, Rizvi M, Giambruno C

Aim. Exposure to real codes during pediatric residency training is scarce. Consequently, experiencing mock codes scenarios can provide an opportunity to increase residents' confidence and knowledge in managing pediatric emergencies. Hypothesis. Pediatric senior residents perform better as code team leaders if they are exposed to frequent mock codes. Material and Methods. Forty-three pediatric senior residents (postgraduate year [PGY] two and three) participated in the study. Team leader performance was assessed utilizing the Team Emergency Assessment Measure (TEAM) scoring. Residents' team leadership performance was assessed before and 6 months after the implementation of weekly mock codes. Results. Pediatric residents' team leadership performance in mock codes improved after exposure to weekly practice mock code sessions (71.93 ± 18.50 vs 81.44 ± 11.84, P = 0.01). Conclusion. Increasing the frequency of mock code sessions during residency training led to an improvement in code team leadership performance in pediatric senior residents.
