The DAS 2015 guidelines for unanticipated difficult intubation in adults advocate standardised surgical front-of-neck access (FONA) techniques in a ‘Can’t intubate, can’t oxygenate’ scenario. Regular training in this skill is recommended for all anaesthetists. This resource, invited by the DAS Implementation Group, aims to provide an accessible summary of homemade and commercially available FONA training mannequins. It includes ratings and links to manufacturer websites for further information. We thank the reviewers for their advice and comments.
