Abstract

In October 2016 an editorial was published jointly in Clinical Otolaryngology and the British Journal of Anaesthesia concerning the appropriate management of the difficult airway in a situation of ‘Can’t Intubate Can’t Oxygenate’ (CICO). It highlighted the importance of joint working between surgeons and anaesthetists and also made a case for the wider use of the scalpel-bougie cricothyroidotomy technique in securing a Front of Neck Airway (FONA), especially in an emergency.
