A Big Day About Small Airways

Course Description

This course is all about managing the paediatric airway. For those who feel like experts or need a refresher, or for those who work with children all the time or just see them occasionally; this is an entire day devoted to providing better care to children. This one-day program focusses on what is different about the paediatric airway, the latest evidence on safely managing a paediatric airway, as well as tips and tricks from experienced paediatric experts. This hands-on, interactive course will include time for discussion, time for hands on skills and lots of teamwork and simulation to invigorate your practice.
