“We’re not a big teaching hospital […] and I think there is a slightly different perspective…”

This piece focuses on the realities of preparing for and dealing with COVID 19 patients in the town of Bath in the UK. Innovation with staff training, cautionary tales regarding our advance warning of the current situation and fluctuating guidelines are the opening points of discussion before a fascinating deep dive into the potential merits of video laryngoscopy.

Further discussion includes reflections on the anaesthetics and forms of treatment which might be used in such a case.

Presented by Desiree Chappell and Monty Mythen with their guest Professor Tim Cook, Consultant in Anaesthesia and ICM, Royal United Hospitals, Bath.
