Video Demonstrations

We videoed some simulation to demonstrate the use of the manual in theatre.

The idea was to focus on how the manual can be useful in different situations. The specific focus was to show how useful it is to incorporate a ‘reader’ role into the crisis team.

The first simulation involved a paediatric arrest. The manual & the reader could be very helpful with:

  • adherence to critical tasks
  • equipment calculations
  • drug calculations
  • reversible steps – specific to children/theatre
  • communication & avoidance of task fixation

Here it is…..

The second simulation involved unexpected high airway pressures. It was designed to show the second half of the manual which is designed to help diagnose/prevent problems before they become a crisis. The manual & the reader could be very helpful with:

  • frequency gambling to the problem
  • systematic approach to diagnosing the problem
  • full list of potential causes to consider
  • communication & avoidance of task fixation

Here it is….

Thanks for all that helped make the simulation happen!
