About SAS

The Safe Airway Society is the interprofessional airway society for Australia and New Zealand. Our members represent a wide range of health professions including Anaesthetists, Intensivists, Anaesthetic technicians, Emergency Physicians, Nurses, Rural Doctors, Surgeons and Paramedics.

We aim to overcome our geographical challenges by reaching out to clinicians in all corners of the continent, to bring together the skills and expertise of our various professions.

Through innovative collaboration, we aim to create resources including consensus guidelines, promote education and training with an emphasis on human factors and team performance, and improve systems through research and standardisation of practice.

The Safe Airway Society aims to build an environment where safe and effective airway management prevails across all professions and for all patients.
