Abstract

Background: Endotracheal intubation using direct laryngoscopy is a fundamental skill for health care professionals who are tasked with the job of securing a patient's airway. Teaching this skill is often challenging because of the inability of a faculty member to share the same vantage point as the learner. The aim of this study was to determine feasibility and acceptability of the use of telehealth glasses to guide teaching the skill of endotracheal intubation. Method: This study used a qualitative descriptive design through transcript analysis of open-ended survey questions completed by 14 nurse practitioner students in the Southeastern United States. Results: Three categories emerged from the students’ responses regarding use of the telehealth glasses: advantages, disadvantages, and recommendations. Conclusions: Although the findings were mixed, the researchers learned powerful lessons that could be helpful to educational researchers who would like to use a form of glasses.
