Lake Superior Ballroom L,M

Description: Ensuring quality in pre-hospital airway management is challenging because the generally fast-paced process occurs in a less-than-ideal setting with bad lighting, limited space, and under demanding circumstances. In a case study format, we will highlight core measures of patient safety, timeliness, oxygenation, and ventilation. Our biggest challenge as providers, is deciding when airway skills are right for the patient. When you pull out your “airway bag” or “tool box” what are you going to do? This lecture will be full of videos and pictures.

Objectives:

  • Review airway anatomy
  • Discuss the common pitfalls to airway management
  • Discuss basic techniques to manage simple and difficult airways
  • Demonstrate live airway management techniques
