SMS teaching: An Ideal Airway

May 2017

Thanks to Dr David Alexander



Discussion points

1.  Regular consultant training of fine motor skills with the D-blade is recommended.
2.  Every intubation in ED should entail preparedness for a surgical airway.
3.  The teaching of airway skills in ED requires vigilance around careful positioning of the patient and fastidious attention to equipment preparation.
4.  As a teaching hospital every opportunity should be taken to teach airway management skills to junior staff.
