INTRODUCTION: The aim of the study was to test the surgical abilities between orthopaedic surgeons and anaesthetists on a surgical simulator intended for children.

METHODS: The study was a prospective comparative study with 31 consultant or specialist grade medical doctors: 15 orthopaedic surgeons and 16 anaesthetists. The speed and failure rate when removing foreign bodies on a surgical simulator was measured.

RESULTS: There was no statistically significant difference in speed and failure rate between orthopaedic surgeons and anaesthetists, when they were working on the simulator. Anaesthetists demonstrated statistically significant more body movement and more use of foul language doing the simulation, and they were more willing to read the written instruction but less likely to follow it.

CONCLUSION: Anaesthetists may be just as handy as orthopaedic surgeons but should be given more physical and verbal space in the operation room.

FUNDING: none.

TRIAL REGISTRATION: not relevant.
