Public Opinion on Different Approaches to Teaching Intubation Techniques
BMJ (British Medical Journal). 1993 Nov 13; 307(6914): 1256-1257.
...Most people in our sample agreed that intubation technique could be practised on both living patients and patients who had recently died. Giving consent in both circumstances was dependent on age, marital status, and sex. Men and people who had received higher education were more likely to agree that a relative who had just died could be used for teaching intubation. Older people seemed to be more aware of the need for doctors to train on dead patients. The younger respondents, however, were more likely to allow themselves to be practised on than to allow a dead relative to be used. The willingness and ability to rate society's need for medical training above the integrity of one's own body may be attributed to education or maturity.
