Brief Summary:
A study was formulated to test the hypothesis that comprehensive training in Suction- Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination techniques reduces mannequin intubation times for Anaesthesia trainees.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Contaminated Airway Procedure: Training on Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination Procedure: No Training on Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination Provided Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
To assess the clinical impact of in Suction- Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination (SALAD) training among 37 anaesthesia trainees. Intubation mannequin will be used to assess intubation times for contaminated airways pre and post SALAD training.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Pre SALAD education group
Each trainee was asked to intubate a mannequin with a contaminated airway
Procedure: No Training on Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination Provided
No Training on Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination provided to trainees

Experimental: Post SALAD education group
Each trainee was asked to intubate a mannequin with a contaminated airway after receiving SALAD training
Procedure: Training on Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination
Education on Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination, via 30 minute teaching session, followed by practical demonstration of techniques.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to intubation as preformed on a mannequin . [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    Aim to investigate whether specific airway training on contaminated airways reduced intubation time in anaesthesia trainees.
