Why is it important?

trainees and instructors should be aware of the strengths and limitations of the respective pairings


Every time a manikin is used for medical education, instructors and trainees have to overcome shortcomings of the artificial system. By our comprehensive evaluation we performed different skills on these manikins. In the light of the increasing spectrum of available SAD types and associated functions, it appears desirable that the development of airway manikins keeps pace with this technical progress.
