  About the Association

The All India Difficult Airway Association (AIDAA) was established as a Registered Association in October 2010. Membership to AIDAA has grown in seven years to over 600 Life Members all of whom have one common interest - understanding and disseminating knowledge regarding airway management techniques. To this end, AIDAA holds periodic Zonal Meetings and an annual National Airway Conference that not only familiarises but also sensitises all strata of "airway managers" regarding techniques and equipment that have led to a safe and scientifically sound management of all airways including "difficult airways".

The AIDAA is also proud of having simultaneously published 5 Difficult Airway Algorithms and an accompanying Editorial in the December Issue of the Indian Journal of Anaesthesia (India Journal of Anaesthesia 2016;60:883-930). These articles are relevant to the Indian context and cover unanticipated difficult airway in adults, obstetrics and paediatrics besides addressing anticipated difficult extubation, as well as tracheal intubation in the intensive care unit. These algorithms have received national and international acclaim for their relevance to airway management not only India but also in many resource-rich countries.

The "Airway" Journal is, to our knowledge, the first journal in the world that is completely dedicated to clinical aspects of airway management in the operation theatre, intensive care unit, emergency room and trauma care (including prehospital ambulance services). The Journal also proposes to focus on relevant aspects of Anatomy, Physiology and Pharmacology of the respiratory tract. With such a wide scope of coverage, the journal is bound to interest qualified professionals and trainees in the fields of Anaesthesiology, Intensive Care, Emergency Medicine and Trauma Care (in addition to Pure Science Researchers in the fields of Anatomy, Physiology and Pharmacology).

We plan to bring out the Journal three times a year beginning with the May-August 2018 issue which will be released in August 2018. Our Editorial Board is constituted by senior Anaesthesiologists both from within India and abroad, all of whom have one thing in common - a burning desire to make "airway management safe". Airway-related issues are not specific to any subspeciality of anaesthesia or intensive care. We hope that through thought-provoking contributions from experts the world over, we will be able to realise our dream of a Journal that will not only emphasise airway education but will also promote airway-related research. Your contributions are solicited to this end.
