Annual Airway Workshop – Friday 12th June 2015

(Posted on behalf of Peter McLaren)

Annual Airway Workshop 2015

  • Friday 12th June in the Allamanda lecture room
  • 5 – 6.00pm – Technicians and nursing staff
  • 6 – 7.00pm – Medical staff


Just a short notice on this year’s difficult airway workshop to be held at Allamanda Hospital on Friday, 12th June.

Syd has still to confirm all the participants but Storz will be there with the CMAC, Cook will be there with Ian Cameron demonstrating percutaneous cricothyroidotomy and we hope Ambu will be there to demonstrate the King Vision system recently acquired by Pacific Private. It’s a great chance for some hands-on experience with gear you may not use often. It may also help with deciding future equipment purchases, especially in areas such as ED and ICU where dedicated difficult airway equipment may not have the penetration of that in OR.

The format of other years will continue with more of a nursing staff orientation from 5 to 6pm and a more medical take on things from 6 to 7pm. Food and drink will be provided. It will be held in the education room, near the admin offices with access via the staff cafeteria.

A further notice will be sent closer to the date.

For some of you who have been incorrectly emailed. I am using an old contact list and any who no longer wish to receive these emails, please reply ‘unsubscribe’. For those of you who have enjoyed these workshops in the past, please forward this email on to other staff perhaps at other hospitals or in other units who may be interested. Continuing education certificates will be given to all participants. Please RSVP or contact Syd for catering purposes.
