Dear colleagues and airway enthusiast 
The European Airway Management Society is introducing a new feature – Article of the Month.

The Article of the Month will be made available via the EAMS website and is going to be accompanied by a short text (up to 200 words) explaining why is this article being selected. 
EAMS members with login to will have access to the articles as full-text PDF's.
We would like to encourage our members to propose articles of the month. The short text accompanying the article will also be made available on line with full acknowledgement of the author who proposed the article. 
The final decision to go on-line will be taken by the EAMS Board of Directors.

Dear EAMS members and airway enthusiasts,

July’s article of the month consists of a narrative review of the Front of Neck Access (FONA) from well renowned airway experts.

The management of a Cannot Intubate-Cannot Oxygenate (CI-CO) scenario is extremely challenging and one of the anaesthesiologist's fields of expertise. The authors mention that “the concept of FONA covers a large amount of techniques, principles, problems and debates”. The review discusses the epidemiological and technical aspects about CI-CO. 

Although only a few will ever perform a cricothyrotomy during their careers, always remember the 7 Ps: Proper Planning, Preparation and Practise Prevents Poor Performance!

Enjoy this Summer reading in the EAMS Journal Trends in Anaesthesia and Critical Care!

Keep safe and well!
