Airway & Thoracic Skills

OpenAirway in conjunction with the UCT Department of Anaesthesisa & Perioperative medicine are hosting regular airway and thoracic anaesthesia skills workshops and other courses at the UCT Clinical Skills Laboratory, Groote Schuur Hospital.  

These workshops are aimed at practitioners of all levels from the prehospital, emergency, aeromedical, anaesthesia, critical care and anyone who may need to perform routine or emergency airway management.

There are three workshops which run back-to-back over the span of one week namely Core Airway Skills, AEIOU (Airway Endoscopy) and Thoracic Anaesthesia Skills.  While there is a small amount of overlap, they have been designed to be complementary, and allow attendees to refresh and build upon their skills by attending more than one as desired.  For instance, anaesthetists wishing to do the Thoracic Anaesthesia Skills workshop who are not confident with their bronchoscopy skills are encouraged to attend AEIOU on the previous day.

All workshops and courses are held at Groote Schuur Hospital, in the UCT Clinical Skills and Simulation Laboratory.  Tea/coffee and a light lunch is provided, and they are CPD accredited.
