Course Description:
This course provides an in-depth look at effective surgical airway management techniques that you will actually use in your next emergency airway. There is a unique focus on airway anatomy and imaging combined with one-of-a-kind opportunity to practice the techniques on a large variety of non-embalmed, specially prepared cadavers. This is the only cadaver airway course available. This course teaches practical, effective skills and strategies for adult and pediatric intubation that promote patient safety and increase provider confidence.

Topics covered include orotracheal intubation, laryngoscopy, surgical airways (cricothyrotomy, tracheotomy), video laryngoscopy, fiberoptic intubation, nasotracheal intubation, pediatric intubation, and rescue ventilation devices such as the laryngeal mask airway. The intubation and ventilation techniques and devices are presented within an overall practical algorithm for the difficult airway that is applicable for emergency settings. There is significant focus on patient safety and a best practice approach to rapid sequence intubation.

Learning Objectives:
• Formulate an overall strategy for different emergency airway situations emphasizing pre-procedural assessment of the "difficult" airway, indications for nasal and surgical airways, and the role of rapid sequence intubation.
• Apply and understand techniques of laryngoscopy including external laryngeal manipulation, head elevated positioning, and paraglossal straight blade technique.
• Effectively use laryngoscopy adjuncts including tube stylets and introducers, as well as understanding the fundamentals of laryngoscopy blade design and selection.
• Explain the role for and the methods of insertion for rescue ventilation devices including the laryngeal mask airway and tracheal-esophageal Combitube, as well as means of transitioning from such devices to tracheal tube placement.
• Describe laryngeal and upper airway anatomy including the structures about the laryngeal inlet, and the significance of these anatomic landmarks in terms of laryngoscopy, rescue ventilation, and surgical airway techniques.
• Cite the indications and techniques of emergency surgical airways including retrograde intubation, cricothyrotomy, and tracheotomy.

This course provides hands-on device practice on specially prepared cadavers using the following tools:
• Curved blade laryngoscope
• Straight blade laryngoscope
• Malleable stylets
