You can download my accompanying lecture notes on the DAS 2015 guidelines here:
FCA2 Refresher 2016 Notes – Hofmeyr – Difficult Airway Society 2015 Guidelines
Frerk et al’s article on the 2015 guidelines is available from the BJA here (open access), and the excellent recent editorial on front-of-neck access by Timmerman, Chrimes and Hagberg is here. This is not in the notes, as it has only just been published online.
The links to the different algorithms are on the Algorithms page, or you can browse the DAS website.
The surgical airway technique video that woudn’t play is below.
Herewith the presentation that Ross cobbled together for the candidates preparing for anaesthesia finals, to give an idea of the trends and new tools in airway management at the current time. Mostly pictures, but the lecture notes (with all the references) can be downloaded as a PDF here:
