Abstract

Ultrasound use can improve innovative procedures in locoregional anaesthesia, like myofascial block, increasing the success rate, reducing the risk of complications, with better management of post-operative pain. Locoregional anaesthesia can be considered a useful alternative to general anaesthesia in high-risk patients. Despite being an integral component of anaesthesia practice and being recognized as a milestone in specific training domain, ultrasound training is still not a component of many accredited anaesthesia residency programs. In the context of TEL, many opportunities exist. For instance, the Royal College of Anesthesia and e-Learning for Healthcare has recently produced the E-learning anaesthesia, i.e., a joint initiative containing more than 750 curriculum-based topics, catalogued by subject, in addition to other useful learning resources. In the paper, we investigated the change of implementation on innovative locoregional anaesthesia, after an ultrasound training in locoregional anaesthesia that includes the use of a high-fidelity simulator. At the end of the course, the TEL support to the training, i.e., the mannequin simulation, was rated among the most important teaching methods.
