This CPD aims to benefit learners by developing their knowledge and practical skills to assess the upper airway and subsequent airway management of critically ill adults through injury or illness. The course will include optimal positioning for oxygenation and bag-mask ventilation, using Nasopharyngeal Airways (NPAs) as a simple adjunct. It will expand on the fundamental skills for identifying, assessing, and managing the causes of life-threatening deranged physiology due to airway compromise. This includes position and oxygenation for mechanical ventilation using advanced airway adjuncts, i-gel® supraglottic devices and intubation, and the escalation to emergency front-of-neck access (eFONA)
