Airway Inventory Cart

Welcome to the UC San Diego Department of Anesthesiology Virtual Difficult Airway Cart.  This site contains a pictorial inventory of our implementation of a difficult airway cart, which is available at all times in our operating rooms.  The pictorial inventory is intended to provide more detailed guidance regarding cart design and organization than is available in the primary literature.  Our selection of one product over another may simply reflect availability and cost at the time this inventory was completed rather than our preference for one over another based on some feature or set of merits.
