Abstract

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: The effectiveness of an interactive course on the recognition and treatment of contrast media reactions was studied. METHODS: An instructional course on contrast media reactions was organized for the radiology staff, residents, and nurses. Before the beginning of the 3-day course, a 25-point pretest was administered to determine the ability of each participant to recognize and treat contrast material reactions. An identical posttest was administered after the course, and the pre- and posttest results were compared. RESULTS: There was a statistically significant improvement on the posttest scores for all subjects tested (P < .05). There was also a substantial improvement in the participants' confidence levels in dealing with contrast media reactions. CONCLUSIONS: A short course on contrast material reactions is a worthwhile learning aid that is simple to conduct and educates and instills confidence in both residents and staff.
