Airway Management at the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne

About: This course details the approach to airway management at RCH with a focus on Emergency Intubation and Airway Skills.  This courses emphasis preparation as well as skill acquisition.  Skills covered by this course include basic skills such as facemask ventilation all the way through to advanced airway management skills including fibreoptic intubation.  There are seven modules currently, and more may be added in the future.  

Intended audience: This course is designed for all health professional who are involved in airway management.  Participants in this course are encouraged to select the modules that are most appropriate to their current level of experience and role in airway management.  Anaesthetists may choose to focus solely on the advanced airway management modules, while nurses may choose to focus on the basic airway management modules.  However, there are aspects in each module that are beneficial to all.  For example, nurses and anaesthetic assistants who prepare and set up videolaryngoscopes will still benefit from completing the C-Mac and GlideScope modules.  Also, anaesthetists who attend the emergency department to assist in intubation will benefit from completing the Emergency Intubation module.   This course was initially targeting RCH staff and therefore consistency refers to the RCH Emergency Intubation Algorithm and how each skill fits into the RCH shared mental module.  However, the lessons learned from this course can be applied to paediatric airway management in any institution.
