Airway Workshops

The Airway Workshops will run alongside the Winter Symposium lectures on Thursday 13 December with two sessions. The workshops will provide you with hands-on experience using a variety of airway equipment and the chance to learn core airway management techniques in a small group teaching environment. Delegates will rotate through both workshops with plenty of time to practice and ask questions.

Workshops will cover Front-of-neck access (FONA) and Fibreoptic techniques. 

Session 1 will run from 9am – 10.30am and session 2 from 11am – 12.30pm; you should only book one session as both will be the same.
Numbers will be limited. Secure your place at time of booking event.

SAS Update and networking

Dr Kirstin May will meet SAS Doctors during lunchtime of Thursday 13 December to discuss recent updates and provide a networking facility for fellow SAS colleagues. Please register your interest for this at time of booking.
