Teaching the Difficult Airway Algorithm using 360-degree Video Immersion

Project description

The unanticipated difficult airway is among the most critical and stressful emergencies faced by anesthesia providers. The management algorithm of this scenario is currently taught through visual diagrams which fails to expose trainees to the important environmental dynamics, interpersonal communication challenges, and crisis resource management skills needed to successfully navigate this type of emergency. By immersing learners in a realistic virtual environment, we believe trainees will show greater retention of the difficult airway algorithm, improved acquisition of crisis resource management skills, and report higher engagement and enjoyment in the learning process.
