The Fiberoptic Learning Space

A NextGen Learning Space Designed to Elevate Your Airway Practice
more than an online course

Developed by our PAC design team, this integrated learning space on fiberoptic devices covers all the critical concepts, and skills you need to deploy these tools in your clinical practice. Listen to our experts discuss how and when to use them in real-world care, and teach you the tricks of the trade they rely on in their practice.

Then, use our guided self-practice tools to let us guide you through the real procedure step by step in our immersive and interactive installations. When you’re done, you’ll be able to take your new skills to the bedside, improve your first pass success, and be better prepared to protect your patients from harm.
