Anatomy of the Airway

the landmarks and geometry that will elevate your airway practice


Listen Here

To navigate the airway, you need to be able to identify key anatomic landmarks and understand the three-dimensional spacial geometry projected onto a two-dimensional screen, if you want the ability to problem-solve in real-time during laryngoscopy. Enter this space to learn the relevant anatomy and elevate your practice.

The landmarks

Laryngoscopy is sometimes called “epiglottoscopy” to highlight the importance of a progressive identification of anatomic landmarks. Learn which ones are important and in what order.


the geometry

Identification of anatomic landmarks is only part of the equation for successful intubation. Learn how to translate 2D images on your video laryngoscope into successful 3D tracheal access.
