Introduction to the Element of Practice

time erodes skills

Time inevitably erodes our skills. So how do we stay prepared for this high stakes low frequency event? The answer is simple. Regular practice. In this space we review the key elements of effective practice: review of relevant anatomy, the eFONA procedure, and tools to help you get the regular practice you need in the real world.

practice without equipment??

We often think that practicing a procedure requires physical models upon which to perform that procedure, but that is not entirely true. While regular training with realistic high fidelity models is ideal, it’s not always feasible. Visualization is a proven training method that can actually have a positive impact on your muscle memory.

We created this audio tool for our hands on self-guided stations, but it’s also a great for guided visualization practice. Go ahead an close your eyes, listen to this audio and then imagine yourself walking through the steps of the FONA procedure. Then, see if it doesn’t indeed help you in your hands on practice! For more on guided visualization and other performance enhancing tools. Visit our online Stress Lab here.
