The International Airway Management Society’s (IAMS) 2023 annual meeting is going to be held on 5-7 August 2023 in hybrid format – both at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, USA, and online.
The main meeting runs over most of Saturday 5 and Sunday 6, with an in-person tour of the hospital and university facilities on Monday 7 August. Sessions include oxygenation strategies, innovation in airway management, paediatric and obstetric patients, ENT, battlefield, trauma, emergency and thoracic airway management, and diagnosis and management of the difficult airway. Look out for a link here to the final program when published!
Live broadcasting will be available from theMiller Voice of Anaesthesiaduring the meeting; in-person attendees will be able to engage in the Smilow Commons Auditorium, Smilow Center for Translational Research, 3400 Civic Centre Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA.

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.
Herewith my final presentation from NAPEM 2017 in Hyderabad, India. Not really an airway talk, but in the spirit of #FOAM, I’m reproducing it here.
The SASA Paediatric Procedural Sedation and Analgesia (PSA) Guidelines (2016 Update) are available from the ‘Publications’ section of the SASA web page (and are open access), but for ease of access, I have made the file available here as well:
As promised, my presentation from the 9th National Assembly on Paediatric Emergency Medicine currently being held at the Apollo Institute of Medical Sciences & Research in Hyderabad, India. There is much more content in the audio, which I will try to add to the post later when it is available.Thoughts? Comments? Post them below!
As promised/per usual, here’s my presentation from the current National Assembly on Paediatric Emergency Medicine, being held now (16-19 Feb 2017) at the Apollo Institute of Medical Sciences & Research, Hyderabad, India. Much of the content is in the audio, of course…which I will post if/when available.
Comments welcome below as usual!
One of the greatest influences on my understanding of the geometry of the airways, and thereby the technical skills and processes required to place airway devices of all types, has been the work on publications of Dr Kenneth Greenland. Greenland’s publication in the BJA in 2010 should be required reading for anybody who performs intubation. However, if you want to really understand theories of the airway curves and columns, I highly recommend getting it from the horses mouth. Here below are several videos in which can Greenland explains his thinking and theories. While they are a little longer than your average #FOAM material, I cannot recommend them strongly enough.
