Airways Scope or Practice & Needle cricothyroidotomy vs Surgical cricothyroidotomy data

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

I am a 2nd year Student Paramedic at Stafforshire university currently undertaking a review of the effectiveness of needle cricothyroidotomy when compared to surgical cricothyroidotomy.

As part if this report I would like to request information about,
1. What clinical grade of staff are allowed to use different types of airway?
2. And cases that your trust has had over the past 6 years when either of the two above mentioned skills have been used, 2012/13 - 2017/18.

I have included a link below to an excel spreadsheet that you should be able to view and download using the Downwards arrow incon in the top right corner. The document has three sheets, two of which are to be completed. The first to be completed with information about scope of practice, the second with information about the cases of the above mentioned skills usage. I have included example data sets in red to assist. If you are unable to provide the level of detail requested on the second sheet I have provided a third sheet which somewhat simplifies the information further to simply the usage of the skill by grade and the outcome.

If you are unable to view the document please contact me and I will endeavour to sort the issue. I have also included a list of column headings below should there be any issues.

Your prompt reply would be greatly appreciated and I look forward to hearing back from you.

Yours faithfully,

Jake Ledger
