Overall the central control interface outperformed the conventional control in terms of fewer user actions (40 +/- 3 vs. 73 +/- 20 clicks, p <0.001) and fewer user errors (1 +/- 1 vs. 3 +/- 2 errors, p <0.05), with no difference in task execution times (421 +/- 108 vs. 406 +/- 119 seconds, not significant). Questionnaires indicated a significant preference for the central control interface. Despite being novice users of the central control interface, ICU nurses displayed improved performance with the central control interface compared to the conventional interface they were familiar with.
