The Difficult Airway Workshop will start out with the presentation of a trigger film and use in fostering a discussion of managing the difficult airway.  Following this, there will be a review of cricothyrotomy and a lecture reviewing the difficult airway algorithm and vortex approach.  After lunch, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the hands-on portion of the workshop.  During this session, attendees will be exposed to situationss 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.  

Cost to attend is $165/person and the session is open to both CRNAs and SRNAs (the fee is the same).  Fee will increase to $265/person after May 16.

Registration is limited to 20 individuals.  If a minimum of 15 participants have not registered by Wednesday, May 16, the workshop may be cancelled.
