From: Simulation versus real-world performance: a direct comparison of emergency medicine resident resuscitation entrustment scoring

Simulation-based RAT narrative
Themes Examples
Task-specific feedback “Earlier pacing! Early recognition of probable hyperkalemia.”
“Reasonably quick pacing. No need to sync. ECG done—needs more interpretation quickly.”
Details in medical management “Good handling of glucose distraction, airway equipment, allergies!”
“Pacing fair – 25mcg fentanyl inadequate”
Communication “Excellent communication …”
“Good delegation of actions, good communication to team re: (treatment and) thoughts …”
