This is a new half-day course, which is aimed at consultant anaesthetists within NHS Tayside. The course is largely practical based with a tutor ratio of 1:2 or 1:3 so is very much ‘hands on’. Following the practical sessions there will be two interactive lectures. The course will start at 8:30 (registration from 08:15) and conclude at 12:15.
A mixture of animal, cadaveric and mannequin teaching tools are used.
To familiarise Tayside consultants with the techniques and equipment used in advanced airway management specifically within Tayside hospitals.
• Practice with the fiberscope on a cadaveric model
• Opportunity to perform needle and surgical cricothyrotomy on animal models
• Further stations covering video laryngoscopes, ILMA, airway exchange catheters etc.
• 2 interactive sessions covering extubation of the high-risk airway and the management of challenging airway cases
This event is approved by the Royal College of Anaesthetists for 3 CPD points.
