Head & Neck Surgery

There is a wealth of opportunity for gaining experience in management of difficult airway cases, with a busy otolaryngological and maxillo-facial service. Awake fibre-optic intubation, jet ventilation and laser airway work are regular events and major head-and-neck malignancy cases are undertaken.

Aberdeen runs its own course on advanced airway skills annually and mannequin training of surgical cricothyrotomy occurs on several sessions a year.
