a nextgen learning space designed to elevate your airway practice
Has this ever happened to you? Your unresponsive patient needs a definitive airway but they have some anterior facial trauma and blood is now pouring into their oropharynx from above. Or maybe you placed a nasopharyngeal airway and caused some inadvertent trauma. Now your optimal view is gone and you’re beginning to feel the stress. Don’t worry! We cover epistaxis and how to manage it here so that if you ever run into a situation like this you can handle it.
The ability to rapidly control epistaxis is a handy skill in airway management. That’s because gravity is your enemy and anterior epistaxis can quickly turn into a difficult or failed intubation.
Here is a short video about the Rapid Rhino device and how to insert it. When you’re done here look for the guided practice station associated with this content for hands on training.
If you’re in one of our pop-up learning spaces or a PAC Live!! event, find this guide and, use the multimedia tools for a guided practice training experience.
Don’t forget to engage our faculty coaches for real-time expert feedback.
Congratulations on completing this learning space! You could stop here, but why would you want to? Look for more Situationally Difficult Airway (SDA) learning spaces and add another bundle of concepts, tools, and skills your airway tool box 🧰
