Frequently Asked Questions
  • Is this a high fidelity wet lab workshop?
    • No, this workshop is decidedly Lo-Fi, with airway models made out of old tubes and sticky tape.
  • Then why on earth should I bother?
    • It’s free!
    • It’s CPD!
    • It’s good for you! You’ll get to learn the CICO algorithm and practice with the CICO kits that are being introduced into the hospitals.
  • Will you be serving champagne and caviar?
    • No, we will not be providing any refreshments, although there will be plenty of water in the tap.
  • Will you be providing printed handouts, USB sticks, or CD’s?
    • No, you will be emailed documents prior to the workshop which you can print out. Can you sense a bit of a theme here?
  • What’s in it for you, and why are you doing this?
    • Your CICO instructors are not receiving any payments, inducements, or freebies, just a warm fuzzy feeling from helping the local community tackle the new CPD. Cook Medical has helped out by supplying some of the equipment.
  • I’m a CICO expert!
    • Well, that’s not a question, but thanks for letting us know. Please volunteer as an instructor for future workshops.
