As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
This pilot simulation study was to determine the optimal choreography for evaluation of the critically ill patients. The results showed that a focused history can be done in either series or parallel to the primary survey, however, there is less mental demand and effort associated with a parallel choreography.
