Course Details

The Paediatric Difficult Intubation Workshop is for trainees and consultants who anaesthetise children and wish to refresh and update skills in managing children with a difficult airway. The course aims to discuss the management of the anticipated and unanticipated paediatric difficult airway. The format of the day is one of short interactive lectures, videos and four hours of hands-on small group workshops. The workshops cover care and basic use of the fibre-optic laryngoscope, modified airway and LMA access techniques using guidewires and exchange catheters.

Delegate numbers are limited to 24 places to allow maximum opportunity to interact and interrogate the faculty.
