Ward, J and Teng, Y-C and Horberry, T and Clarkson, PJ (2013) Healthcare human reliability analysis - By heart. In: UNSPECIFIED pp. 287-288..Full text not available from this repository.
As part of the investigations into a surgical incident involving the accidental retention inside a patient's venous system of a guide wire for central venous catheterisation (CVC), the Human Error Assessment and Reduction Technique (HEART) was used to examine the potential for further occurrences. It was found to be time-efficient and to yield plausible probabilities of human error, although its use in healthcare has challenges, suggesting adaptation would be beneficial.
