Half day workshops covering the following:
- Predicting difficult airways
- Airway ladder
- Basic airway adjuncts
- Laryngectomy and Tracheostomy patients
- Airway simulations
The student should be able to:
- Explain when it would be appropriate to escalate airway management techniques using the airway ladder as described in SWAST Clinical Guideline 03: Airway Management (CG03).
- Demonstrate appropriate knowledge and practical application of airway management skills (in a manikin/simulated casualty) to achieve optimal patient ventilation and oxygenation as detailed in SWAST Clinical Guideline 03: Airway Management.
- Recognise the clinical significance of different End Tidal CO2 waveforms (detailed in SWAST Clinical Guideline 11: End Tidal CO2 Monitoring – CG11) and explain the correct airway management/ventilation techniques for each waveform.

– Airway Management (CG03)
– End Tidal CO2 Monitoring (CG11)
– Non-Invasive Positive Pressure Ventilations using T-piece Nebulisation (CG22)
– Foreign Body Airway Obstruction
– Emergency Tracheostomy and Laryngectomy Pre-Hospital Management
These workshops were postponed due to operational pressures we faced over Summer and Autumn. They are now being re-planned and new venues and dates booked.
Dates will be added here soon for early 2022.
Please book via the form below.
