BBC Horizon: How to Avoid Mistakes in Surgery.
Broadcast on BBC Two (and BBC HD), 9PM Thu, 21 Mar 2013.
A&E doctor Kevin Fong finds out how doctors can avoid making mistakes in the high-pressure, high-stakes world of the operating theatre.
He sets out to learn how other professionals make life and death decisions under pressure, from airline pilots facing emergencies, to the Fire Service dealing with lethal blazes, to the world of Formula One pit crews. Kevin discovers how all these fields are helping to make surgery safer.
The clip shows Professor Nilli Lavie showing that when our brains are overloaded, our perception of time is severely impaired.
