dc.description.abstractThis study evaluated the relationship between an ACRM course, response times and ANTS scores during a simulated anesthesia machine malfunction. The objective being improved patient safety by training SRNAs to properly manage a crisis. Only one study assessed this relationship, finding an ACRM intervention improved ANTS scores in SRNAs. The information processing theory lays the theoretical framework for this study. This pilot study uses a quasi-experimental pretest-posttest design. Two different scenarios were randomized and completed by each student for the pretest and posttest. A dependent group t-test and Pearson’s r was used for statistical analysis. The intervention accounted for a statistically significant improvement in response times and ANTS scores. Pearson’s r showed no correlation between ANTS scores and response times pre- or post-intervention. This project has the potential to improve patient outcomes through allowing SRNAs to effectively respond to an anesthesia machine malfunction in clinical practice. Future research should incorporate a similar design while focusing more on the ANTS framework and creating a more immersive environment by providing students with a full team to communicate with and elicit help from. This will allow for nontechnical skills to be better assessed following the intervention.en_US
