As part of your AED orientation and departmental CME we will be running through basic airway survival skills on Tuesday the 10th December from 2pm to 4pm.
We will be covering
- Overview of when airway intervention required. (Medical/Trauma/OD)
- Airway assessment
- Recognising difficult airway to intubate & to ventilate
- Algorithm & Airway Emergency Call out.
- Practical: Bagmask ventilation 1 & 2 person, Adjuncts (OPG/NPA/ Apnoeic O2 via NPA) and LMA
- AED RSI Checklist:overview of the RSI checklists (preparation and challenge/response checklist), the rationale behind a checklist, team briefing, then a demonstration and simulated run-through)..
I have attached some links for pre-reading around the ED airway, RSI and checklists as below:
– This is a collection of airway based podcasts and resources from Scott Weingart on his EMCRIT blog, presented all on one page and is an invaluable resource. Goes into a little more detail than we will on Tuesday, but the rest we will be covering on another airway session.
– UK Site, based on the outcomes from the NAP4 study. Good, one page RSI checklist developed by anaesthetic regs in the UK and a nice presentation of the rationale behind safer intubation using a pre-intubation checklist.
– By Cliff Reid (of the resus.me blog). This is an awesome video demonstrating a concise run-through an RSI checklist. Useful for a brush-up on paeds RSI.
– Just for a bit of fun! If NSW HEMS can do it safely on the side of a cliff it can be done safely anywhere!
From Dr Fen Moy – drug information sheets. This will be covered in a second session later in the run

If only patients came with labels…
If you have your Auckland Trainee Airway and Procedural Skills logbook – please bring it along with you on the day! Cheers – Alana
