Airway MedicalCoda22Critical Care

Adam Rehak and Gerri Khong walk through the good, the bad and the ugly of human factors in airway management. Using video footage of a highly realistic (tachycardia inducing) simulated airway emergency, the multi-stage case discussion canvases both audience responses and the input of a panel of human factors experts: David Brewster, Brooke Dench, Ben Meadley and Ian Summers, to illustrate that airway management is far more than just a technical skill. Instead, it will become clear that success is equally dependent on careful preparation, coordinated teamwork, precise communication and effective cognitive tools.

This session was recorded at the SAS workshop at CODA22 which took place in Melbourne in September 2022.
