Aim: The UK TEAM course is a two-day simulator-based course designed to teach the foundations of the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to safely manage the airway in an emergency situation. The course is taught by an experienced consultant faculty using small groups and high fidelity patient simulators.
The course consists of an introductory lecture followed by small group tutorials, skill stations and scenarios. The focus of the first day is on basic airway management and assessment of the emergency airway, followed by rapid sequence induction of anaesthesia, tracheal intubation and management of the failed airway. A paediatric workshop completes the programme for the first day. Part of the second day covers specific emergency airway skills, such as surgical airway, equipment and ventilators, but most of the second day is devoted to scenarios that reinforce the learning of the first day and address particular emergency airway problems.
