Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
Filmed at the 2016 EACTS Annual Meeting in Barcelona, Joel Dunning and Shanda Blackmon discuss safety in minimally invasive general thoracic surgery. They focus on the importance of preparation, such that a surgical team knows its course of action for potential critical events ahead of their occurance. Mr Dunning and Dr Blackmon also discuss surgical videos of VATS bleeding events, with the intention of fostering a culture of openness where surgeons and trainees are able to learn to better manage such events.
