Difficult Airway Workshop

MANA will be offering a difficult airway workshop at this year’s conference!  There are a limited number of seats available for two workshops on Saturday, October 7.  CRNAs will have the opportunity to pre-register for the workshop (as part of the event registration).  Any remaining seats will be available onsite at the meeting on a first-come first-served basis.  

This workshop will expose anesthesia providers to situations requiring use of different modalities to work through a difficult airway and obtain a secure airway.  Participants will engage in opportunities to augment the related technical skills and use of resource management principles in difficult airway situations.  Use of simulation, debriefing and different airway devices will be incorporated.  

SRNA Interactive Q & A Session

SRNAs, this is your opportunity to participate in an open forum where you will have the opportunity to ask questions of a panel of recent SRNA graduates and reputable CRNA mentors. 
 
The format of this session will be open, allowing students to interact, ask questions, give their own feedback and bring up topics of their own choosing.  Don't miss this opportunity to network with fellow SRNAs at the 2017 MANA Fall Meeting.
