Algorithms in a Simulated Difficult Intubation Scenario

2014-07-23 21:13:45 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a non-human study, conducted in a simulation environment, with simulator manikins, and volunteers from anaesthesia. Trainees in their first 2 years of anaesthetics training will be randomised to a control group, a group following the Difficult Airway Society UK's Guidelines and the Australian Difficult Airway management algorithm. A simulated difficult airway will be created during the induction of anaesthesia. The investigators will examine adherence to guidelines, which would have been provided to participants before the experiment, as well as compare their performance with the guidelines.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Evaluation, planning, and use of a range of procedures and airway devices for the maintenance or restoration of a patient's ventilation.

A form of bronchial disorder with three distinct components: airway hyper-responsiveness (RESPIRATORY HYPERSENSITIVITY), airway INFLAMMATION, and intermittent AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION. It is characterized by spasmodic contraction of airway smooth muscle, WHEEZING, and dyspnea (DYSPNEA, PAROXYSMAL).

The structural changes in the number, mass, size and/or composition of the airway tissues.

Thermal destruction of the excess bronchial SMOOTH MUSCLE tissue with heat delivered through a catheter assembly attached to a BRONCHOSCOPE. It is often used to control BRONCHIAL HYPERREACTIVITY in severe ASTHMA for better AIRWAY MANAGEMENT.

Participation of employees with management as a labor-management team, in decisions pertaining to the operational activities of the organization or industry.
