What Makes Airway Management Safe?

Let's try to recap by answering again the Big Question

We are now reaching the end of Airway Matters. Before we finish the course, we would like to summarise what we have learnt over the last five weeks by answering the “Big Question” we asked at the start:

What makes airway management safe?

In this video you will hear the answer given by health professionals, patients and experts and then we would really like to hear from you:

  • Think about your answers to this question at the start of the course. Has anything changed?

  • What is the most interesting or useful thing that you’ve learnt?

  • How important was reading other people’s comments and taking part in discussion?

  • How do you think you might use what you’ve learnt on this course in your practice?

You might also like to go back the the Padlet wall: Human Factors and Ergonomics in Airway Management we have created together in Week 1 and read about some of the many suggestions to improve Human Factors and Ergonomics.

For a final time please do discuss your thoughts on these questions in the forum.
