Multimodal participation in simultaneous joint projects. Interpersonal and intrapersonal coordination in paramedic emergency drills

  • This paper analyses paramedic emergency interaction as multimodal multiactivity. Based on a corpus of video-recordings of emergency drills performed by professional paramedics during advanced training, the focus is on paramedics’ participation in multiple joint projects which become simultaneously relevant. Simultaneity and fast succession of multiactivity does not only characterise work on the team level, but also the work profile of the individual paramedic. Participants have to coordinate their own participation in more than one joint project intrapersonally. In the data studied, three patterns of allocating multimodal resources stood out as routine ways of coordinating participation in two simultaneous projects intrapersonally: 1. Talk and hearing vs. manual action monitored by gaze, 2. Talk and hearing vs. gazing (and pointing), 3. Manual action vs. gaze (and talk and hearing).
