Can't intubate, can't oxygenate (CICO)

The CICO (formerly know as CICV) scenario is a relatively rare event during airway management in Anaesthesia. The CICO scenario may be more frequent in specialties such as Intensive Care or in the Emergency Department owing to the patient population and nature of the underlying emergent medical issues. The Fourth National Audit Project (NAP4) done by the the Royal College of Anaesthetists in the UK shows poor management of cases where PEO (Percutaneous Emergency Oxygenation) with either a scalpel or a cannula was performed. This was mainly due to lack of provider skills, materials and preparation. It is a professional responsibility as medical doctor to be prepared for such an eventuality.

In this course you will get hands on manikin practice in CICO management and PEO techniques according to the ANZCA (Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists) Algorithm. A CICO scenario can happen in any type of patient in any type of setting. The ANZCA Algorithm strives to manage CICO scenario’s in all patients in all settings. This Algorithm includes cannula and scalpel techniques and assumes to always use a cannula technique as first technique for PEO. During the course there will be ongoing discussion on how these techniques have been established as well as material choice and common mistakes and pitfalls as to have the candidates optimally benefit from the course.
