Jonathan St. George MD
Course Director & Creator of the Protected Airway Course
My own airway training was uneven at best. Sometimes I got it right; sometimes I had to learn things the hard way. Looking back at that journey is what made me want to create a better path for those who come after us. A path that helps to amplify your abilities, and that gives you an honest look at our strengths and weaknesses as human beings and as clinicians so that we can transcend those limits. For those of us who teach emergency airway, I believe the goal is to build more effective training tools as the guardrails that protect our patients from harm. This is how the Protected Airway came into being. It continues to evolve and grow. It has become a collaborative effort by an amazing team of dedicated educators. We all do this for one reason: we want you to be better than we were.
