Abstract

This paper reports on the development of an Airway Management Training System. Airway management is a standard operation executed in emergency and operating rooms. However, medical accidents occur due to unskilled operations. In order to avoid accidents, medical doctors undergo to mannequin-based training. However, traditional training techniques do not provide quantitative information on the trainee’s performance and are not capable to assess the trainee’s performance based on the quantitative information. In this context, we proposed a novel airway management training system, dubbed WKA-3. This work presents both the electromechanical and the control sub-systems of the WKA-3. The results of preliminary experiments carried out by medical doctors to doctors to verify the training system are also provided.
