Inhalation Burn Injury

nextgen learning designed to elevate your airway practice


Patients with inhalation injury to their upper airway are some of the most complex and high risk intubations out there.

When do you intubate, what will you experience upon entering the airway, what are the best tools to use, and how should you prepare if your intubation attempts fail? These are all topics we cover here in our digital space.
