Acute Spinal Cord Injury & Airway Management

This is a copy of the slides I used during a talk I gave at the AAGBI Winter Scientific Meeting day. The full programme of the meeting can be found here.

This (updated) talk was designed to provide an update for anaesthetists in the management of acute spinal cord injury, with a particular focus on cervical spine trauma. I have focused particularly on the evidence (or lack of it) relating to spinal immobilisation techniques and how to safely undertake tracheal intubation in the patient who has proven, or suspected, cervical spine instability.
