Group effort in resuscitation teams

  • Rainer Spiegel (a1)

Abstract

Baumeister and colleagues underline that individual identification and differentiation of selves are important characteristics for group performance. They name specialization, moral responsibility, and efficiency as vital components of well-functioning groups. In my commentary, I transfer their framework to the group effort within resuscitation teams to discuss for the first time how these components determine teamwork during resuscitation.
