There are few situations more challenging and stressful than airway compromise in acutely ill patients. This book describes the principles of emergency airway management outside the operating theatre, systematically leading the reader through the components of successful practice from the principles of oxygen delivery and patient assessment to rapid sequence induction of anaesthesia, tracheal intubation and the difficult and failed emergency airway. Supported by clear diagrams and algorithms, the text includes sections on a range of special circumstances and up-to-date considerations of non-invasive ventilatory support, post-intubation management and commonly used drugs. Compiled by an expert team of physicians from emergency medicine, anaesthesia and critical care, Emergency Airway Management is an invaluable resource for trainee doctors in all acute specialties who may be called upon to manage a patient's airway in an emergency situation. It is also the official course manual of the UK Training in Emergency Airway Management (TEAM) course.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This book fits in the pockets of theatre clothes. It may be useful for the junior trainee to have to remind themselves of key points before they head off to do an emergency intubation. It also concludes with flow charts, including a failed intubation drill. For the final exam candidate, it contains helpful lists and synopses. ... the size and presentation of this publication make it a welcome addition to the training material available for our junior staff. ' Anaesthesia and Intensive Care
'This book was surprisingly deceptive for its size ... The contributors and editors [provide] a wealth of clinical experience ... Although the book is aimed primarily at the trainee doctors in acute specialities, arguably the content ... is equally applicable to nursing and allied health professionals working alongside the medical team. ... an invaluable resource with an abundance of information presented in a compact size.' Journal of Perioperative Practice
