Leadership and teamwork are important contributory factors in determining cardiac resuscitation performance and clinical outcome. We aimed to determine whether fixed positioning of the resuscitation team leader (RTL) relative to the patient influences leadership qualities during cardiac resuscitation using simulation.


A cross-sectional randomized intervention study over 12 months' duration was conducted in university hospital simulation lab. ACLS-certified medical doctors were assigned to run 2 standardized simulated resuscitation code as RTL from a head-end position (HEP) and leg-end position (LEP). They were evaluated on leadership qualities including situational attentiveness (SA), errors detection (ED), and decision making (DM) using a standardized validated resuscitation-code-checklist (RCC). Performance was assessed live by 2 independent raters and was simultaneously recorded. RTL self-perceived performance was compared to measured performance.


Thirty-four participants completed the study. Mean marks for SA were 3.74 (SD ±â€Š0.96) at HEP and 3.54 (SD ±â€Š0.92) at LEP, P = .48. Mean marks for ED were 2.43 (SD ±â€Š1.24) at HEP and 2.21 (SD ±â€Š1.14) at LEP, P = .40. Mean marks for DM were 4.53 (SD ±â€Š0.98) at HEP and 4.47 (SD ±â€Š0.73) at LEP, P = .70. The mean total marks were 10.69 (SD ±â€Š1.82) versus 10.22 (SD ±â€Š1.93) at HEP and LEP respectively, P = .29 which shows no significance difference in all parameters. Twenty-four participants (71%) preferred LEP for the following reasons, better visualization (75% of participants); more room for movement (12.5% of participants); and better communication (12.5% of participants). RTL's perceived performance did not correlate with actual performance CONCLUSION:: The physical position either HEP or LEP appears to have no influence on performance of RTL in simulated cardiac resuscitation. RTL should be aware of the advantages and limitations of each position.
