Hands-on Workshop

Type: Workshop

Chairs: nn



The hands-on airway workshop provides opportunities to learn crucial airway management techniques with state of the art airway devices from world-class faculty of airway experts. Appropriate for all grades of residents, specialty physicians and consultants who are challenged to manage difficult airways in anesthesia, emergency medicine and critical care medicine.


Topics covered include:

  • Supraglottic devices and mask ventilation
  • Tips to optimise facemask ventilation
  • Classification and description of supraglottic devices (SGA), 1st and 2nd generation, intubating SGA
  • Indications and selection of the appropriate device (e.g. LMA’s, AirQ, Ambu Aura’s)
  • Preparation, insertion techniques and verification tests
  • Role of SGA in updated guidelines


Flexible endoscopic intubation

  • Learn how to integrate movement of endoscope
  • Recognize normal airway anatomy
  • Navigate around abnormal airways
  • Optimize tracheal tube intubation
  • Apply adjuncts for endoscopic intubation


Intubation through supraglottic devices

  • Flexible endoscope assisted intubation via SGA, 1 stage technique
  • Flexible endoscope assisted intubation via SGA, 2 stage technique using exchange catheter
  • Flexible endoscope assisted intubation via intubating SGA (iLMA, iLTS-D)
  • Size of Endotracheal Tubes that pass through various SGA (e.g. LMA Unique, iGel, AirQ, Ambu Aura, Laryngeal Tube)


Direct laryngoscopy and stylets

  • Direct laryngoscopy (DL) - the basic approach to the glottis
  • Improving intubation success during DL
  • Aids to facilitate intubation during DL
  • Teaching safe direct laryngoscopy
  • Tips & tricks using introducers & stylets


Video laryngoscopy

  • General features of video laryngoscopy (VL)
  • Different blade types for VL
  • Advantages and limitations of VL compared to DL
  • Learning curve for VL
  • Different devices for VL (e.g. GlideScope, C-MAC, Airtraq, McGrath MAC, KingVision)


Surgical airway / front of neck techniques

  • Identify anatomy
  • Check accessibility
  • Practice Percutaneous Cricothirotomy
  • Emergency small lumen ventilation  
  • Different devices (e.g. Surgicric, Melker, surgical techniques, Ventrain)




Awake Intubation & Airway Blocks

Type: Workshop

Chairs: K. Saracouglu



When airway management must fail - veno-venous bypass oxygenation

Type: Expert round Table

Chairs: E. Nickel



Airway catheters: when, which and how to use

Type: Lunch-Workshop, supported by COOK medical

Chairs: M. Sorbello



Human Factors in Emergency Airway Management

Type: Workshop

Chairs: N. Chrimes


Using a real-life case as a starting point, this workshop will explore the impact of human factors on airway management in an interactive format. Expert facilitators will encourage participants to consider practical strategies they can implement in their own workplace to reduce the vulnerablilty of their clinical team & patients to human factors related adverse outcomes.
