Attend this state-of-the-art, systematic overview and hands-on experience offering the preparation, teamwork, and tools necessary to manage complex critical care airway situations.

  • Identify exam findings associated with a difficult airway, practice the essential skills of intubation, and learn to use innovative new advanced airway tools to manage difficult airways.
  • Gain hands-on experience with a multitude of videolaryngoscopes, bougies, and other intubating devices proven to increase first-pass intubation success.
  • Utilize extraglottic airways to reestablish ventilation if intubation is not successful.
  • Recognize when and how to use cricothyrotomy for failed airways.
  • Work with a team using crew resource management concepts to solve airway problems in a high-fidelity, fast-paced, simulated clinical environment using scenarios developed from real-life cases.

Completing the pre-course work will allow you access to the course materials. These resources must be reviewed in preparation for your course. The concepts and knowledge learned from the pre-reading will be reinforced and assessed throughout the course.
