There is a basic logic that ambulance staff have access to a range of airway management equipment that they have been taught to use. One might therefore assume that the type and range of equipment across UK ambulance services is consistent. Previous work has suggested that this was not the case1.

This study builds upon this work to determine whether the provision of equipment is now more consistent. This study also takes into account the growth in use of a range of supraglottic airway devices in prehospital emergency care.

Further analysis of the grades of staff authorised to undertake the range of airway interventions has been undertake as part of this study, but is reported elsewhere
