Team training in ruptured EVAR - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Van Herzeele, I; Sevdalis, N; Lachat, M; Desender, L; Rudarakanchana, N; Rancic, Z (2014). Team training in ruptured EVAR. Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery, 55(2):193-206.

Abstract

Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms are almost always a fatal condition. The incidence of ruptured aortic aneurysms (rAAA) is declining, the number of teams is increasing and there is an increased focus on patient safety resulting in limited real life training opportunities to maintain or improve the technical and human factor skills required to manage this acute aortic pathology. The availability and experience of the multidisciplinary team together with accessibility of appropriate resuscitation and efficient logistics all influence the modality of rAAA repair. A standardised patient's pathway for rAAA management and reliable multidisciplinary team are the keys to improve patient outcomes. Whole rEVAR team training using high fidelity simulation may be the one answer to allow clinicians to learn, practice, rehearse, improve and maintain team-based knowledge, technical and human factor skills and team attitudes to manage this challenging pathology.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
