Abstract

Tacit knowledge such as "proficient skills" and "knacks" in nursing skills seems not to be applied by nurse alone but by the interaction between nurse and patient. The purpose of this study is to analyze their interaction from the point of interbrain synchrony. In this study blood drawing technique was adopted as nursing skills and experiments of drawing blood were carried out in nurse-patient pairs. Experimental participants were 4 nurses and 6 patients. The brain waves in the occipital portion of nurse and patient were simultaneously measured using portable EEG devices during drawing blood. The ratios of alpha-band power were calculated for each of the nurse and patient, and the cross-correlations were obtained between every pairs of them. The results indicated that the brain waves of patient were synchronized with those of nurse by several seconds behind. Furthermore the synchronization was not recognized in abnormal circumstances that nurses failed in the drawing blood.
