Developing and Testing Fidelity of Manikins for Training in Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation: Need of the Hour!
Successful resuscitation is the most important determinant of survival after a cardiopulmonary arrest . Like resuscitation, training healthcare providers in the performance of resuscitation is a demanding job. The classic apprenticeship model of medical teaching “see one, do one, teach one” may not be sufficient in resuscitation training due to the rarity and unpredictable timing of events. With increasing emphasis on providing quality care and concerns about patient safety, resuscitating patients without mastering the knowledge and skills for novice residents/ fellows is a cause of concern.
Simulation based education helps in acquisition of the necessary life saving skills in a controlled and safe environment [2, 3]. Simulation based learning improves the self confidence of health care providers. A systematic review of 182 studies on simulation technology for resuscitation concluded that efficacy of simulation based training compared with other traditional methods resulted in...
