Handbook

 

 

We have created an online handbook containing free, open-access pre-reading and video demonstrations to accompany each session. ‘Difficult airway algorithms and checklists’ and ‘Airway management out of the comfort zone’ are interactive discussions. The remaining chapters correspond to the Skill Stations, all 1 hour long – more hands-on time means better muscle memory.
