The new trainee effect in tracheal intubation procedural safety across PICUs in North America: a report from National Emergency Airway Registry for Children.
Researchers evaluated the effect of the timing of the PICU fellow academic cycle on tracheal intubation-associated events in a retrospective cohort study of 37 PICUs participating in the National Emergency Airway Registry for Children.. They found that the New Trainee Effect in tracheal intubation safety outcomes was not observed in various types of PICUs. There was a significant improvement in pediatric critical care medicine fellows' first attempt success and a significant decline in tracheal intubation-associated event rates, indicating substantial skills acquisition throughout pediatric critical care medicine fellowship.

Just-in-time simulation to guide workflow design for coronavirus disease 2019 difficult airway management.
This paper describes the development and enactment of a number of simulation exercises, increasing in complexity for clinicians to practice intubation of critically ill children while wearing personal protective equipment due to coronavirus disease. The simulations ended up aiding in a real-life situation that then occurred less than 12 hours later that validated potential failure points and effectiveness of rapidly generated guidance. From this simulation a COVID-19 airway bundle template was created.

Evaluating patient outcomes in medical education research: mission impossible?*.
This editorial examines evaluation of the impact of pediatric supplemental crisis resource management (CRM) training among first- and second-year residents. The author suggests that increasing CRM training and using debriefing for skill retention may link this training to patient outcomes.
