CORDERO-ESCOBAR, Idoris. Teaching resources in anesthesiology and resuscitation. Rev. mex. anestesiol. [online]. 2021, vol.44, n.1, pp.5-7.  Epub 11-Oct-2021. ISSN 0484-7903.


The means or resources applicable to teaching are active components in the process of teaching and learning. In medicine, throughout history, the patient is the fundamental teaching medium of the physician.


To provide an update on the role of teaching resources in anesthesiology and resuscitation.


The means of teaching are elaborated in the stages linked to the sensory phase of scientific knowledge, whether abstract or concrete. It is obtained through sensations and perceptions of the sense organs and the rational phase of abstract knowledge. There are various theories of learning that are generally structured on the basis of the theory of knowledge and personality. The objectives of the teaching media are determined by social needs and requirements. The means of teaching respond to what is taught. They are the resources that support the methods to their material support. It is very difficult in practice to separate the selection of methods and the selection of teaching resources. Both constitute a dialectical unit, closely related. In anesthesiology, the use of models, mannequins and simulation help the resident build skills, before treating the patient.


The means of teaching constitute a source of inestimable value for the student to verify reality and for the teacher to demonstrate it.

Palabras llave : Teaching media; resources applicable to teaching; the patient as a teaching medium; simulators; sensory phase of knowledge.
