In this post I link to to the video of “Case Scenario: Peri-Anesthetic Management of Laryngospasm In Children” accessed 9-1-2021.
The above resource was found in Anesthesiology‘s “Case scenario: perianesthetic management of laryngospasm in children” [PubMed Abstract] [Full-Text HTML] [Full-Text PDF]. Anesthesiology. 2012 Feb;116(2):458-71
The above article recommends simulation-based training for both residency and for continuing medical education training.
Airway simulators and high fidelity mannequins are important teaching tools.73Simple bench models, airway mannequins, and virtual reality simulators can be used to learn and practice basic and complex technical skills. In the case of laryngospasm, basic appropriate airway manipulations such as chin lift, jaw thrust, and oral airway insertion in combination with CPAP can be demonstrated and practiced with these models.
During high-fidelity simulation, technical and nontechnical skills can then be integrated and practiced. Learning objectives should be based on recommended management algorithms and used as inputs and events embedded into one (or several) case scenario that form the basis for the simulated exercise. During the exercise, the instructor can observe and measure the performance of the trainees and compare them with the standards of performance mentioned in the algorithms. The exercise is then followed by a debriefing session during which constructive feedback is provided. An example of such a simulation-training scenario of a laryngospasm, including a description of the session and the debriefing, can be found in the appendix. In addition, a video of a simulated layngospasm scenario is available (See video, Supplemental Digital Content 1, http://links.lww.com/ALN/A807, which demonstrates the management of a simulated laryngospasm in a 10-month-old boy). The video and the script are intended to illustrate the proper application of the management algorithm, to illustrate the technical and the nontechnical skills required in clinical practice, and to be a resource for the readers who wish to develop their own training sessions.
With all of the above in mind please review the brief (9:28) video “Case Scenario: Peri-Anesthetic Management of Laryngospasm In Children” accessed 9-1-2021.
