Abstract


Introduction: Ultrasound guided regional anaesthesia is a growing area of interest from the clinical as well as research point of view. Availability of Blue Phantom Mannequin to practice ultrasound guided regional anaesthesia offers a great advantage to trainees in achieving success. It contributes significantly towards the medical training and education of individuals. We considered the use of this technology to facilitate the performance of regional anaesthesia by practicing anaesthesiologists.
Methods: Prospective, comparative study conducted among working anaesthesia consultants and trainees. A pre-teaching assessment was obtained from the participants which was followed by training and practice. At the end of this, a post-training assessment was carried out.
Results: Of the 25 participants, 13 (52.0%) had less than 24 months of experience and 12 (48.0%) had an experience of more than 24 months. Probe stability and needle visualization differed significantly in the pre and post training sessions (p=0.001). Distribution of target reached and obtaining image optimization also differed significantly in the pre and post teaching sessions (p= 0.014 and 0.001 respectively). Identification of structures differed significantly at pre teaching and post teaching sessions (p=0.001).
Conclusion: Study concludes that TAP Block blue phantom is beneficial in improving the skill set of all the participants. Inexperienced candidates with less than 24 months experience rapidly mastered basic ultrasound skills, allowing them to successfully perform an interventional procedure. We recommend simulation training for quality improvement of anaesthesia department. Further educational efforts may be directed at validating the efficacy of TAP block blue phantom simulation training to enhance technical skills and reduce performance times.

    Being a digital marketer today is definitely not easy! Not only do you need high-quality content, you need a lot of it. But creating good content is incredibly time consuming. At least that is what I thought until I came across WordAi… In case you have never heard of WordAi, it is a lightning fast content rewriter that uses Artificial Intelligence to automatically create unique variations of any piece of content. The best part is, WordAi creates rewrites that both humans and Google love.  I know, that’s a bold claim and I was pretty skeptical myself. So I decided to test their claims with their free trial and can tell you honestly, I opted directly for the yearly subscription after that. I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that WordAi is better than any other tool, service, or method on the market. I have been using WordAi to fill out my blogs and have already covered the cost of my yearly subscription. Its crazy but Im just scratching the surface of how far I can scale my SEO with WordAi! While I am using WordAi to scale my SEO efforts, you can also use WordAi to diversify your copy or even brainstorm to beat writers block! I could tell you about WordAi all day, but you really just need to try it for yourself. They are so confident in their technology that they offer a completely free 3-day trial AND a 30-day money back guarantee. So what are you waiting for? Click here to get started with WordAi for Free!
