Airway topicalisation

When attempting awake direct or video laryngoscopy, or awake flexible optic intubation, local anaesthesia to the airway is necessary. This video below shows one recommended technique.

Further information on doses and technique is in the Virtual Learning Environment’s Advanced Airway Class (enrolled GSA-HEMS members only)

There is a free iOS app on fibreoptic intubation available here
