Introduction: Bronchoscopy is an indispensable tool for patient airway management for diagnosing and therapeutic goals , however the acquisition of sufficient training because of technical and ethical reasons is challenging Several methods have been used to teaching this technique to assistants. In this study, the effectiveness of web based bronchoscopy simulator on tracheobronchial anatomic knowledge of anesthesia assistants was evaluated.

Material and methods: This quasi-experimental study was performed on 28 anesthesia assistants of Guilan University of Medical Sciences. Assistants randomly were divided into two traditional (14 numbers) and web based bronchoscopy simulator (14 numbers) groups. At the first, pre test including 15 tests, had been taken from both groups. Then according to the groups, the necessary training were given and again, the test was taken from both groups. Demographic variables (age, sex, educational grade), pre and post test score was recorded. All data were entered and analyzed by Spss software with paired t-test and Independent t-test.

Results: There was no statistically significant differences in variables such as age, sex and educational level between two groups. The mean and standard deviation of  pre- test in control group was 55.38±17.82 and in simulator group was 66.33±13.71 (p=0/280).But in the post-test  score, the mean and standard deviation has been elevated in control group to 90.83±10.84 and in simulator group to 119.17±14.43(p

Conclusion: Based on the result of this study, using web based bronchoscopy simulation, increases trachea-bronchial anatomy knowledge and lead to improve bronchoscopy skills of assisstants.
