Some updates to the site to improve your access and experience! The various courses which are on offer in conjunction with the UCT Department of Anaesthesia and Perioperative Medicine have been added to a new ‘Courses & Lectures‘ page here on OpenAirway, which also now includes links to the content and resources available from many of our previous workshops, courses and congress meetings, as well as a collection of the lectures that are available online. These are being added to steadily, but if you can’t find something, use the search function on the tool bar! The menu has also been update to make the various items easier to find.
All hosted on the permanent page here!
A short presentation on a selection of airway themes and some of the papers from 2016 for our FCA Part 2 candidates. Definitely not intended to be a systematic or exhaustive review! Click the image to download a PDF of the slides, or the link below for the resources.
You can watch a 9-minute video of the slides and attendant video clips below. Please note that this is not narrated.
Here’s the excellent simulation/re-enactment video from Simpact on the Elaine Bromiley Case that I featured in the lecture.
You can download my accompanying lecture notes on the DAS 2015 guidelines here:
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 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:
