"There is little substitute for doing it (awake fibreoptic intubation), and actually surprisingly useful to be on the receiving end"

Awake Intubation Course

Practical Fibreoptic Intubation in Cambridge

*This is one of the few courses that teaches theory and practice of awake ORAL and nasal intubation!*

The Cambridge Endoscopic Airway Course is an intensive training programme in fibreoptic intubation. Generally, training in fibreoptic intubation is difficult to obtain and experience of awake techniques even more so. We have found that the technique of fibreoptic intubation is more easily taught and learned on conscious individuals. On this course we demonstrate, teach and supervise delegates in topical local anaesthesia of the airway and awake fibreoptic intubation using course delegates as subjects. There are two levels of course entry, as a participant or as an observer. Observers will not be expected to undergo airway endoscopy or intubation. The number of delegates is small to maintain intensive instruction, therefore numbers are limited to 6 participants and 2 observers.

"Very hands on approach, repeated opportunity to try. thank you very much for this brilliant course" October 2013
