RCT of cognitive aids in EM airway
first the open access article!
A randomised controlled trial of cognitive aids for emergency airway equipment preparation in a Paediatric Emergency Department
Editor’s note: A worthy study to advance checklist science for emergency medicine and airway management. My issues with it are lack of pragmatic patient oriented outcomes since it was a simulation test only. It shows that making mistakes in preparation are less likely with either use of a checklist or template.
