  Purpose

Purpose: This study is designed to assess the impact of teaching tracheal intubation using video-guided feedback on the ability to perform and maintain this clinical skill by medical students.

Hypothesis: We hypothesise that, for novices, video-guided feedback provided during tracheal intubation will improve learning and retention of this clinical skill compared to standard teaching using direct visualization feedback.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Ease to intubate (time and number of attempts required to perform intubation) and retention of the competency (short and mid-term) [ Time Frame: Within a week and at 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Medical students' satisfaction towards the teaching technique and their ability to perform tracheal intubation. [ Time Frame: At 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 18
Study Start Date: January 2010
Study Completion Date: June 2010

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Video
Teaching tracheal intubation to medical students using video-guided feedback during the procedure.
Procedure: Endotracheal intubation
Pregraduates medical students will be randomized to perform endotracheal intubation with video-guided feedback (experimental arm) or endotracheal intubation using direct visualization feedback (standard technique).
Active Comparator: Standard
