OBJECTIVE: The International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) provides recommendations on neonatal resuscitation training and practice, which includes a template for a decision-making algorithm. We evaluated the design properties of the ILCOR algorithm and four adaptations by member resuscitation organizations using the validated Cognitive Aids in Medicine Assessment Tool (CMAT). STUDY DESIGN: Two experts rated five neonatal resuscitation algorithms against the CMAT and against medical device design criteria. RESULTS: The ILCOR algorithm scored 32 of a possible 60 CMAT points, showing an adherence rate to CMAT of 53%. The ILCOR algorithm scored higher than the design variations by ..View full abstract
