What else do we need to consider when talking about emergency trainings?

Training is useful in acquiring and maintaining skills. While this statement is very well founded in current scientific literature, it seems rather unknown to healthcare administrative bodies.

The experienced anesthesiologist does not expect this sudden difficult airway that the patient presents with now. “Difficult airway”, the doctor says loudly, clearly, and quickly - you can hear his stress and the anesthesia nurse in the room knows [...]

Sharing simulation experiences: a realistic and economic cricothyrotomy phantom

One of the most serious problems that we can find is the “Can't Intubate-Can't Oxygenate” situation. Although this is a rare condition, this is still a cause of high morbidity and mortality.1 Emergency cricothyrotomy, an invasive technique that allows immediate access to the [...]

Preparing today’s students to meet the challenges of tomorrow with Clinical Simulation

In line with the Sustainable Development Goals for 20301, clinical simulation ensures inclusive and equitable quality education. As most top healthcare professionals are integrative clinical thinkers, analytical problem-solvers and reflective learners, aspects such as perception, reasoning, interpretation, judgment, and decision-making are essential competencies enhanced by simulation. As a learning resource, simulation tools provide a safe training environment [...]

Advanced Medical Simulation: why we need it?

Advanced medical simulation is now a widely used method in all training phases of health professionals as regards the learning of technical and procedural skills and for the acquisition of non-technical skills likeorganization, communication and in general to improve teamwork and leadership skills.1,2,3 How can we be sure that the individual skills acquired by operators during simulation [...]
