Awake intubation and emergency surgical airway/front of neck access are advanced high-risk airway interventions.
Individual healthcare providers perform these procedures infrequently. As a result, techniques tend to be based on experience and training. Unfortunately, patient-based evidence remains relatively sparse.
We would like to change this.
This app does not give advice. Instead, we want to collect your clinical experiences in an anonymous and secure manner and combine them with the experiences of other healthcare practitioners throughout the international airway community. More participants mean more data, and more meaningful results.
By sharing your clinical experiences, you are contributing to data collection done in a new way, captured using the scale necessary for these infrequent and high-risk procedures. Information and experiences that have been difficult to study using traditional research methods.
Together, we can begin to build an understanding and to identify what works, what doesn’t, what may be causing harm, and why. Results can be tracked on www.airwaycollaboration.org.
