Clinical_simulation_CSSCKing Saud University’s Clinical Skills and Simulation Center (CSSC) in the Medical Education Department scheduled to offer a simulation course on ‘Difficult Airway Management’ on February 27, 2014. The course will be start 8:00 am and finished 4:00 pm at Clinical Skills and Simulation Center (CSSC), King Khalid University Hospital.

The basic aim of the course is to recognize, evaluate and treat the difficult airway patient through the proper selection and use of difficult airway equipment and procedures.

Further, the course covers a discussion of the difficulties and pitfalls associated with emergency situations tracheal intubation, revisits the often under-estimated difficulty associated with facemask ventilation, and examines standard tracheal intubation in terms of the pre-intubation, intubation and post-intubation phases.

Benefits for attendees:

Emergency Medicine doctors, anaesthetists, paramedics and nurses would gain an understanding of the difficulties associated with facemask ventilation, learn how to overcome the difficulties of tracheal intubation, and learn how to avoid the nightmare of the missed esophageal intubation.

The candidate will be offered new ideas through a fresh perspective, on the standard techniques of tracheal intubation.   The associated concepts of ventilation, sedation, analgesia and neuromuscular blockade will be enlightened upon.

Candidates will learn how to predict the difficult airway, and will learn how to manage the difficult and failed airway, including the “can’t intubate, can’t ventilate” scenario.

Candidates will gain insight and skill in the use of alternative and assist airway devices, and the use of rescue airway devices.   Candidates will gain exposure to emergency procedures, and will gain insight into the critical pitfalls associated with airway management in special patient groups.

The course will be structured with lectures in the mornings and practical sessions in the afternoons, where practical sessions will be simulation based.

The instructor for this course will be Dr.  Abdulazeem El-Dawlatly
