Cadaveric Workshop

We are running a DAS Cadaveric Airway Workshop on Wednesday 29th November at University Hospital Coventry. This workshop is targeted at doctors and allied health professionals working in Anaesthetics, ED, Paediatrics, Acute Medicine, and ICU.

Our human cadaveric airway workshop offers delegates a unique opportunity to repetitively perform and compare different techniques of airway management on a variety of cadaveric specimens, without the ethical issues or risks associated with practising on live patients. Airway management and intubation on live patients cannot be done repetitively just to compare, test, or practice different techniques. This is not a problem with cadavers.

There will be focus on visualising the larynx, and appreciating the differing appearance of human airway anatomy in the cadaveric specimens. There will be plenty of hands-on practice of the skills of conventional laryngoscopy, videolaryngoscopy using a variety of different devices, LMA and i-gel insertion, oral and nasal fibreoptic intubation, ultrasound of the neck and cricothyroidotomy.
