Welcome from the Advisory Board

The World Alliance of Airway Management (WAAM) is a not-for-profit educational alliance launched by the Difficult Airway Society (DAS), the European Airway Management Society (EAMS) and the Society for Airway Management (SAM) in 2020. Following the global success and impact of the 2015 & 2019 World Airway Management Meetings (WAMM), The World Alliance of airway Management (WAAM) was formed to create a globally accessible conduit and resource for all aspects of airway management. Despite the challenges and hardships of the pandemic that we have experienced since 2019, airway management has continued to evolve in exciting and novel ways. We look forward to the next WAMM meeting in 2025 to bring the global airway audience together again! Questions are welcomed and should be addressed to: Thank you for your time and interest in making WAMM 2025 another fantastic global educational event! WAAM Executive Directors
