Abstract :

Airway management forms the vital component of treatment for emergency and trauma patients. A timely secured airway for injured patients is directly proportionate to the effectiveness of the treatment provided and hence the outcome achieved. Though a lot of advanced techniques have come up worldwide in this field, many are not available in emergency settings as well as in areas with only primary health care facilities especially in developing countries like India. I wish to correlate the best available options for airway management with primary health care settings in emergency and trauma patients in my talk.
