No Intervention: Simulation only
One group will be randomized to receive simulation training similar to that required for certification. Paramedics in this group will then complete a second simulation scenario
Experimental: Directed feedback
One group will review their baseline simulation scenario with a member of the research staff while providing specific feedback for errors made during the first simulation. Paramedics in this group will then complete a second simulation scenario.
Other: Directed feedback
Group will receive feedback from an airway management expert while the paramedic review their baseline simulation scenario through recorded video
Experimental: Basic Videolaryngoscopy
One group will review a series of instructional videos related to common airway management errors. Paramedics in this group will then complete a second simulation scenario.
Other: Basic Videolaryngoscopy Videos
Group will watch a series of educational videos related to common airway management errors.
- Development and validation of an airway management assessment tool [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Employing a team of psychometric, human factors, and airway management experts, we propose to make refinements to our assessment tool so that it has objective measurement criteria, takes timing and sequencing of actions into account, provides reproducible scores, has high inter-rater reliability, and can be a valid measure of paramedic airway management proficiency and safety.
- Development of educational interventions to improve skill retention [ Time Frame: 2 years ]The paramedics will be reassessed at 12 to determine whether skill level was maintained.
