Anatomy of the Airway

the landmarks and geometry that will elevate your airway practice

You don’t just need an understanding of airway anatomy, you need a clinically relevant understanding of airway anatomy.

If the ability to confidently identify key anatomical landmarks and use them to problem solve in real time during laryngoscopy sounds good to you, then you’re in the right learning space.

Getting started is as easy as snapping a QR code next to any station in our physical spaces or scrolling down. 👇

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.
