Airway training devices are widely used in healthcare. Expertise in airway management varies through role, training, and experience. Airway training devices need to cater for a range of airway interventions such as simple jaw thrust for the emerging elective theatre patient, to life-saving procedures like cricothyroidotomy. Selecting airway training devices should be based on sound reasoning, taking into consideration the current skill level of the trainee, the desired curriculum competency, the availability of suitable clinical staff for training, and/or the requirement of solo/independent practice. As very few training devices are suitable across all spectrums, choice is very important and should support realistic training, cost, durability, and sustainability.
