Suitability of a preserved human cadaver model for the simulation of facemask ventilation, direct laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation: a laboratory investigation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Using fresh or formalin-embalmed cadavers has not been generally accepted for the purposes of teaching airway management. We investigated whether cadavers 'preserved according Thiel's embalming method' (PATEM) are suitable for the simulation of facemask ventilation and tracheal intubation by direct laryngoscopy. METHODS This observational… (More)
