This one day course held in the Surgical Skills Centre, provides a competency based approach to emergency Safe Neck Surgery.

A series of structured exercises has been devised so that trainees can complete a variety of neck surgery simulations based on the more common neck emergencies encountered in otolaryngology.

Gain experience in management by simulation of:

  • Stab wounds to the neck
  • Emergency neck surgery for epistaxis
  • Emergency neck surgery for neck space infection
  • Emergency surgery for laryngeal trauma
  • Including laryngotracheal separation and tracheostomy

The SAC recommends that each surgical trainee attends at least 2 training days per year.
