Anaesthesia skills and simulation training during the COVID-19 pandemic
Due to COVID-19 restrictions in the clinical practice areas and theatres of the Academic hospitals in Bloemfontein (South Africa), 4 th and 5th-year medical students of the University of the Free State had limited access to routine clinical and emergency cases.
As part of their Anaesthesia rotation, students needed access and exposure to these clinical and emergency cases to fulfil the minimum training requirements set out in their curriculum. These included ultrasound techniques, administration and management of patients for general anaesthesia and administration of spinal anaesthesia, airway management and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
