Airway management is one of the most critical and life-saving skills. Morbidity and mortality due to failure to properly manage the airway and establish ventilation is a major concern in anesthesia practice. This workshop addresses the different techniques to safely manage the difficult airway and introduces the attendees to well established and new airway management devices. The workshop allows participants to work with these devices on mannequins in a hands-on session after first participating in the didactic lectures by speakers.
