Airway management in cardiac arrest research opportunity

Breathing apparatus

Paramedics from EEAST have been invited to take part in a national clinical trial to determine the best method of airway management in pre-hospital cardiac arrest.

We are only one of four participating ambulance trusts to join the study, which is the first of its kind to be undertaken in this area. It is an exciting opportunity for paramedics to get involved in pre-hospital research, receive expert led education in airway management, undertake CPD that relates directly and inform future paramedic practice.

The aim of the Airways-2 is to establish whether the i-gel, a second-generation supraglottic airway device, is superior to tracheal intubation in non-traumatic OHCA in adults, in terms of both clinical and cost effectiveness.

If you are interested in taking part or would like further information, please visit the Airways-2 website.
