In der Notfallmedizin spielt die interdisziplinäre Teamarbeit eine zentrale Rolle und ist zur Bewältigung vieler Krisensituationen wie der Reanimation elementar. Eine funktionierende Teamarbeit wiederum bedingt eine umsichtige Teamleitung und Führung. Gerade in der Notfallmedizin sind Teamleiter durch eine besonders hohe Arbeitsbelastung gefordert. Um in diesen Situationen die notwendige Übersicht zu behalten, ist eine Leuchtturmführung wichtig. Die effiziente Teamleitung während einer Reanimation, aber auch in andren Notfallsituationen ist lernbar und sollte deshalb integraler Bestandteil von Notfall- sowie Reanimationskursen sein.

Do optimized teamwork and leadership lead to better resuscitation results?

What can we learn from this for other emergencies?


In emergency medicine, interdisciplinary teamwork plays a central role and is fundamental in the management of many critical situations such as resuscitation. Effective teamwork requires careful team management and leadership. Especially in emergency medicine, the burden on team leaders is particularly high. In order to have a good overview in these situations, a so-called lighthouse leadership is important. Efficient team leadership during resuscitation and also in other emergency situations can be learned and should therefore be an integral part of emergency and resuscitation courses.
