Conference Description :
Every intubation in the ICU can be a difficult airway. 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 video laryngoscopes, bougies, and other intubating devices proved to increase first-pass intubation success.
• Utilize extraglottic airways to reestablish ventilation should intubation not be 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.
After participating in this educational activity, you should be able to:
• Describe risk factors, physical exam findings, and clinical situations associated with a difficult airway.
• Classify the various types of equipment used in the management of the patient with a difficult airway, and describe their potential use and limitations.
• Demonstrate a systematic approach to patient, equipment, and drug preparation prior to intubation.
• Demonstrate effective management of the patient with a difficult airway.
• Successfully perform direct laryngoscopy in a clinical environment.
• Employ video laryngoscopes in difficult airways.
• Plan for and use extraglottic devices and cricothyrotomy to manage failed airways.
• Use crew resource management principles to effectively utilize an airway management team, maximizing success and patient safety during intubation.
