Kong Eric You-Ten, M Dylan Bould, Zeev Friedman, Nicole Riem, Devin Sydor, Sylvain Boet
PURPOSE: Non-adherence to airway guidelines in a 'cannot intubate-cannot oxygenate' (CICO) crisis situation is associated with adverse patient outcomes. This study investigated the effects of hands-on training in cricothyrotomy on adherence to the American Society of Anesthesiologists difficult airway algorithm (ASA-DAA) during a simulated CICO scenario. METHODS: A total of 21 postgraduate second-year anesthesia residents completed a pre-test teaching session during which they reviewed the ASA-DAA, became familiarized with the Melker cricothyrotomy kit, and watched a video on cricothyrotomy...

Our study was designed to investigate the effect of high-fidelity simulation on the confidence and decision-making ability of anaesthesia trainees in managing CICO scenarios in subsequent simulation. Nine anaesthesia trainees from Logan Hospital participated. Pre-study questionnaires surveying confidence levels in various anaesthetic crises were completed...
