Developing Competency in Post Graduate Anesthesia Students for Difficult Airway Management

Upasna Vineet Bhatia*.

Abstract
Introduction: Anaesthesiologists are recognized as experts in difficult airway management. And anaesthesiology residents are not exposed enough to a difficult or failed airway during the course of their three years of clinical training .In order to attain “expert” status in difficult or failed airway management, a competency in advanced airway management educational program as a part of an anaesthesiology residency program is necessary. Objectives: This study was undertaken to improve the knowledge of anatomy of head and neck necessary for endotracheal intubation to develop competency in airway management in post graduate anaesthesia students. Methodology: All 17 postgraduate Anaesthesia residents working in Anaesthesia department for more than 2 months of intervention participated. Lecture and training was taken to ensure that they have some basic concepts of anatomy and physiology, and were assessed by pre- post test questionnaire and DOPS (direct observational procedural skills) respectively. Results: Gain % of pre-post test for knowledge was 70.52 and 85.32, DOPS mean score was 5.5+/-0.72 and 8.9+/- 0.20 in Junior and Senior Residents respectively .DOPS score was similar to their self assessed score. Conclusion: Students’ knowledge improved on various aspects of Intubation and difficult intubation after lecture DOPS practical assessment score suggested that there is still need of exposures of unpredicted difficult airways with increase in difficulty levels to improve competency in airway management.

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
