COVID19 Intubation Protocol

Learn From the Team in NYC with over 400 Safe Intubations During the Covid19 Surge


Online learning can only take you so far. Our training is designed to transcend those limits. We’re partnering with internationally renowned airway experts like doctor Ralph Slepian, and one of the leaders in telemedicine, the Center for Virtual Care, to develop innovative new tools that provide safe, efficient, realistic, and effective medical education built for today’s learning environment. Like our installations at the Protected Airway Course our medical educators have applied design thinking to merge digital and physical space in order to create better online learning and remote training.

In the Virtual Training Lab you’ll be able explore our master airway classes online at your own pace, then work with our team to hone your clinical interactions and skills to make them more effective using our new virtual training lab solutions. Welcome to the future of airway training.

There’s more to the safe intubation of a patient with suspected COVID19 than PPE. It requires, preparation. planning, team-based training and a thoughtful workflow to minimize exposure.

What are the lessons learned to date from our clinical experience with the intubation of suspected COVID19 patients in NYC? PPE is important but not the whole story. You need a protocol that offers additive layers of safety that includes: preparation, planning, team-based training, and a workflow design focused on minimizing exposure. This training module was created from our COVID19 intubation team’s experience at the peak of the outbreak in NYC and is based on the perfect safety record of its members after hundreds and hundreds of intubations of COVID10+ patients..
