The make the airway safe team (MAST) is an initiative to improve the emergency management of children with upper airway obstruction through multidisciplinary team training and the standardisation of care. It focuses on three main themes:
the need for an agreed management plan
the accessibility and training of the team
the availability and ease of access to equipment
The course consists of skills training and group scenarios to train hospital teams. The course is free to teams within the Wessex region and held at Southampton General Hospital in the clinical skills labs. Whole teams are invited to apply.
