The Fiberoptic Learning Space

nextgen learning designed to elevate your airway practice

Developed by our PAC design team, this integrated learning space covers all the critical concepts, skills and tools you need to deploy fiberoptic techniques into your clinical practice. Our experts will teach you when and how to use fiberoptic in real-world care, and share with you all the tricks of the trade they rely on in their own practice.

Then, get hands on training with our guided practice tools in this immersive and interactive learning space. If the ability to fiberoptic skills confidently to the bedside 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. 👇

Map Your Own Journey

Explore all the digital content of this PAC learning space simply by scrolling down. When you’re with us in person, just snap the QR code of any related poster to review and access all the guided practice resources for hands on training opportunities. Online or in person you always have access to the same great content. 

We seamlessly integrate digital & physical space for an immersive experience that puts you in the driver’s seat. Listen here for more on how to use it. 👂

the podcast

Spend some time with Ralph Slepian MD & Jonathan St George MD as they discuss the when, where, how and why of FOI in the age of VL. (45 min)

fiberoptic in the age of VL

In the age of the video laryngoscope is FOI still relevant, and if so when should I use it? Enter this space and find out.

FIberoptic basics

FOI requires a different skillset from laryngoscopy. Learn the essential skills & gestures to master this device.

FIberoptic intubation

A step by step guide for fiberoptic intubation. From prepping the device to delivering the tube.

The nasotracheal APPROACH

A step by step guide to the naso-tracheal approach.

rapid sequence topicalization

When RSI induction & paralytic creates too much risk in a patient who needs a definitive airway, the ability to rapidly and effectively topicalize and sedate for an “awake” intubation procedure is the key to success. Let us show you how here.

fiberoptic rescue skills

You were unable to intubate but your supraglottic rescue device is working. Here is how FOI can help you rescue a tough situation.

what’s next

Congratulations on completing this learning space! You could stop here, but why would you want to? Look for more Anatomically Difficult Airway (ADA) learning spaces and add another bundle of concepts, tools, and skills your airway tool box 🧰
