AWAG CICO Algorithm
An algorithm has been produced to provide guidance on the management of "Can't Intubate Can't Oxygenate" (CICO). It was initially developed for inclusion in CICO packs at Glan Clwyd Hospital, for use as an aide memoire during this crisis situation. It outlines the "Cannula-first" approach, as described by Dr Andrew Heard, Royal Perth Hospital, which is advocated by AWAG, and taught on our CICO Instructors Courses. The rationale for this approach, and further information, can be found under the "Resources" tab above.
