Critical Bytes - Can’t Intubate, Can’t Oxygenate CICO

In the fast-paced environments of ED, ICU and operating rooms, you will encounter a myriad of critical situations. Among these, the ‘Can’t Intubate, Can’t Oxygenate’ (CICO) scenario remains one of the most challenging. This webinar will help you understand why CICO occurs, which patients are at high risk, and how to optimise the human factors aspect to ensure a good outcome for your patient. 

Why CICO occurs: Insights into high-risk patients and the role of human factors

Preparation for CICO situations is crucial. Using a black box approach, analysis of relevant case studies will help you understand how to approach a CICO situation.  Every CICO incident provides valuable learning opportunities that can be applied to simulation training to test out your emergency room management, ICU or operating room crisis and be better prepared for the next clinical event.  

"The knowledge learnt is essential to positive outcomes and patient safety in the event of CICO"
