Airway Management

Canonical Reading Material for the Exam Candidate

Oh's Intensive Care manual:

  • Chapter 29  (pp. 341) Airway  management  and  acute  airway  obstruction by Gavin  M  Joynt  and  Gordon  YS  Choi
  • Chapter   76  (pp. 777) Faciomaxillary  and  upper-airway  injuries by Cyrus  Edibam  and  Hayley  Robinson
  • Chapter   104 (pp. 1077)  Upper  airway  obstruction  in  children by Paul  James  and  Sara  Hanna

ANZICS also has a position statement for percutaneous tracheostomy, which probably represents the "state of the art" as far as the exam candidate is concerned.

Summaries and discussions of airway management topics from Life in the Fast Lane are made available as a list of links in the Resources section.
