Why do I need an Airway Logbook?



The Introduction of mandatory Waveform ETCO2 use by UK Ambulance clinicians and the recognition of addressing standards of Airway management in Pre-Hospital Care was highlighted in a Coroners Ruling sadly following a tragic patient death.


I thought it would be useful to highlight these OPEN ACCESS documents so our #AirwayNerds could review the circumstances and promised actions themselves and see if the standards have been met in their region?
