Brief Summary: COVID-19 is a new strain of virus in the coronavirus family which causes a respiratory illness.
Patients with suspected or confirmed Coronavirus disease (COVID – 19) pose a number of challenges for anaesthetists. The more complex and rarer the situation, the more challenge posed to clinicians due to unfamiliarity, that may increase the risks to the patients. For instance, general anaesthesia (GA) for emergency caesarean deliveries, in the context of a patient with suspected or confirmed COVID – 19 infection, may be an extremely challenging situation to manage.

Research questions: In a simulation environment, is there a difference in time taken for consultant anaesthetists to perform spinal anaesthesia as compared to general anaesthesia on women, with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, who require category 1 caesarean delivery? Is general anaesthesia in this context more stressful than spinal anaesthesia?

This project will use a cross over design, in which participants are assigned randomly to a sequence of interventions and each participant serves as his/her own control in estimating treatment effect

This simulation research project will take place in the dedicated operating theatre (OT) for suspected or confirmed COVID – 19 patients.

We will include Consultant anaesthetists who regularly anaesthetise pregnant women requiring category 1 caesarean deliveries and have been doing simulations to deal with COVID – 19 patients.
