We have been working hard to match the success of previous meetings and form a comprehensive scientific programme featuring leading experts in their field. We are aiming to cover the latest developments in different areas of airway management including paediatrics, obstetrics, intensive care and more. Keynote speakers from both home and overseas will deliver their presentations and cross swords in pro and con debates. We are looking forward to hearing from newly elected DAS professors and our distinguished USA colleagues representing the Society of Airway Management. The prospect of learning from innovators at the separate session looking at how inventions reach the production line is also a very thrilling idea. The popular session for Operating Department Practitioners will feature the “simulation outside the simulation suite” layout for this year.

As well as offering the traditional workshop day, delegates will have an option to choose alternative ‘Can’t Intubate, Can’t Oxygenate’ and ‘Tracheostomy’ workshops at the start of the meeting.

The social programme will include an opening drinks reception and gala dinner featuring one of the award winning bands in the South West. For the first time DAS 2016 has organised a 5K fun run in aid of the LifeBox foundation.

Our industry partners are as always joining us with their massive exhibition bringing new and well established products to your fingertips.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Torquay for DAS 2016. We are sure that this meeting will develop our speciality further and maintain the reputation of our society as the world leader in airway management.
