A is for Airway (part 1)3 June, 2010 by: colinparker
The usual release format will be 1 episode per fortnight, covering the basics in part 1 and getting a bit more specific and in-depth with part 2 a couple of weeks later. For the kick-off we thought we’d release part 1 and part 2 of the Airway PEMcast at the same time, this time only, to get off to a flying start.
As always, please feel free to add your comments. It’s good to talk.
Here’s a rough outline of the proceedings:
Colin: Intro / disclaimer
Susan: Anatomical differences adult vs child
Colin: BLS – DRABC
Kate: Airway positioning – problems / tips
Susan: Simple airway adjuncts including OP & NP airways, who was Guedel?

Susan: indications for RSI
Kate: RSI preparation
