scholarhere we observe a novel publication format through two
articlesand an editorial published in the journal in the last decade the demand for medical education content among healthcare professionals has increased to meet this demand we launched ATS
scholara dedicated journal to medical education but for this, we had to look beyond traditional publication formats, this is where i
teachappears in a new genre of
articleswhere expert educators from around the world guide you through their approach to
teaching about healthcare pulmonary critics and sleep medicine. A brief review of the topic explains the author's preferred approach to providing instruction on the topic and offers reasons why that approach works best.
Indeed, these articles enrich readers with up-to-date knowledge that can be passed on to resident fellows and other students. The latest issue of ATS Scholar contains our first two articles on how I teach, one of which describes effective methods for instructing students in the Intensive Care Unit advanced concepts related to Autopeep autopeep is a serious complication in mechanically ventilated patients caused by the accumulation of air in the lungs due to incomplete expiration In the article, educators explain why they prefer to teach Auto Peep and concepts related to mechanical ventilation by asking students a series of manageable questions and then describe specific concepts that are useful for a better understanding of the topic for example to explain how we estimate the time required for a patient without developing Auto peep the authors recommend familiarizing students with the concept of expiratory time constant or Tau expiratory time constants the authors explain that they represent the time that the lung requires to exhale until approximately 37 percent of the initial volume of air remains in the lungs.
To minimize the risk of Auto peep, clinicians should ensure that the patient's expiratory time is greater than three times the expiratory time constant. , so patients with a longer expiratory time constant require more time to expire, which can be illustrated with a graph depicting the decrease in air volume in the lung over time. Another how I teach article in our latest issue presents a step-by-step approach to teaching ultrasound-guided peripheral venous access in this one to explain how to lightly hold the ultrasound probe the authors recommend using the afternoon tea technique to instruct students on precise placement of the IV the authors recommend Dynamic Needle Tip Positioning or dntp a technique in which the ultrasound probe is held in place near the tip of the needle to facilitate insertion into the site Desired Mastery of the dntp technique can also help students guide the needle into the vessel precisely through our novel publication format.
