Airways and Ventilation Emergency Workshop

  • : Online

Problems with the airway are the final common pathway leading to death across a broad range of pathologies, including trauma, neurological emergencies and toxicological emergencies. A range of strategies to address these problems can be used, ranging from simple measures through to intubation and ventilation. Having the skills required to recognise airway problems, and apply the correct strategies according to the clinical context can be lifesaving (1). Unfortunately, unless working in a theatre-suite, opportunities to practise these skills in a systematic approach are not available in day-to-day practise.
