Airway Management

Under the auspices of the Singapore Society of Anaesthesiologists (SSA), the Airway Management SIG acts as a platform for anaesthetists with a particular interest and involvement in airway management to interact and share ideas. The Airway SIG aims to promote activities and enhance access to airway-related educational activities like hands-on airway workshops, continuing medical education (CME) forums, and airway talks. The Airway SIG also acts as a collaborating bridge between anaesthesiology, emergency medicine, otolaryngology (ENT) and intensive care physicians by enhancing the exchange of ideas and education through joint workshops, thereby fostering ties across disciplines. The inaugural Airway SIG event was organised by Dr Wendy Teoh on 16 Dec 2011 at the KK Hospital Simulation Centre, and featured a fun-filled CME evening of talks and hands-on intubations with flexible and rigid fibrescopes.

SSA Airway SIG 2014 plans

We would like to invite representation from each hospital (eg Airway Leads) to help organize educational airway events, collaborate on research opportunities, keep us updated of forthcoming airway courses your dept may be organizing or in conjunction/ collaboration with other departments, so that the SSA website can be a central repository of airway-related activities and resource for interested participants within Singapore & beyond our shores. We also welcome home Dr Tan Leng Zoo & Dr Zhang Jin Bin, who have completed a year of airway fellowship abroad and look forward to their dynamic contributions.
