RCoA-DAS Airway Leads

One of the key recommendations of the NAP4 report was that each Department of Anaesthesia should have a ‘departmental Airway Lead’. This has been a longstanding recommendation of the Difficult Airway Society (DAS) and some hospitals already have such posts. Following discussion between representatives of the Difficult Airway Society and the RCoA, in September 2012 the College Council endorsed a strong recommendation that all departments should conform with this NAP4 recommendation. The appointment of a departmental RCoA-DAS Airway Lead is now recommended by DAS, in the NAP4 report and strongly recommended by the RCoA.
