This week Steve McGloughlin (of The Dying Traveller fame) led his now (in)famous crisis resource management (CRM) session during the Wednesday education session at The Alfred ICU. What could possibly go wrong in a team-based exercise involving shooting basketball hoops, CPR/ defibrillation of a mannikin in VF and landing a flight simulator blind-folded?
Task fixation and the importance of speaking up were highlighted during the debrief, which led to a recounting of the tragic Bromiley case.
This is the video, featuring @MartinBromiley, involving a human factors analysis of the events that led to the death of his first wife, Elaine Bromiley.
