  1. Hi

    Thanks for an amazing website.
    At The Capital Region of Denmark, we are trying to build an adaptive piece of e-learning, concerning airway management.
    In that regard we would very much like to use some of the pictures shown on your site.
    Can you tell us whether that will be a problem?

    Best regards
    Snorre Rubin

    1. Hi Snorre,

      We would love to collaborate, especially if we can share the results. I will send you an email so that we can start the ball rolling. Thanks for your interest, kind words, and support!

  2. Hi Ross:
    I have been seeing your posts for a time, but never search the page. I really appreciate the fantastic work you are doing. I also received the mail inviting to the Collaborative ENT/Anesthesia shared airway workshop. Great idea!
    I will keep surfing your site and maybe a light could turn on in my mind.

    1. Thanks Ricardo – it is a labour of love to keep the page going and fresh content arriving, but if people like you are engaging and finding it useful, it makes it very worthwhile. Warm regards from your southern compatriot!
