  • The course emphasizes on an AIRWAY TEAM APPROACH and therefore it would be ideal for the entire team (doctors and nurses) involved in managing a compromised airway.
  • Nurses (N) and auxiliary staff (AS) play a critical role in the overall management strategy, and would be highlighted in this edition. (Maximum two members (N / AS) per team can attend the course and the hands-on workshop free of cost).
  • The course is designed to get the airway surgeons, pediatric & adult anesthetists, intensivists and nurses together on a common platform to discuss management of airway conditions like congenital airway malformations, intubation injuries, laryngotracheal stenosis, complex airway anomalies with tracheotomies and the combined oeso-tracheal lesions.
  • The course format will include:
    • Didactic lectures
    • Endoscopy (live / recorded)
    • Hands-on workshop for Surgeons & Anesthesiologists
    • Hands-on workshop for Nurses (surgery & anesthesia)
