PLEASE LOOK AT THE NEW MEMORANDUM AND ARTICLES
The ASI AGM 2015 was held at 12:30 in Suite 28 in the Concourse at the Emergency Services Show, National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham on 24th September 2015.
The AGM was preceded by two seminars (in the same room)
Pete Seeney, senior airways product specialist for Intersurgical gave an update and practical demonstration of the i-gel supraglottic airway including results of some recent research into efficacy, ease of use and preference of various airaways where i-gel performed particularly well.
Dr Brian Robertson, Chairman and Owner of the Event Medicine Company Limited talked about current issues in Event Medical Cover. He highlight the problems of cost being given greater preference than duty of care and general misunderstanding of event organisers about their responsibilities when it comes to Medical cover. He also highlighted the loopholes in CQC legislation that is still allowing some operators to continue to provide cover without any CQC supervision.
Unfortunately, we only had 8 people to hear these excellent presentations. We decided that we would not try to do seminars prior to the AGM again as we are competing with other, well advertised seminars in the auditorium (there were at least 4 other seminars occurring at the same time).
