A Very Personal Airway Story
Some stories have a powerful impact. This is one of those.
the first law
The laws of airway management are immutable. Ignore them at your peril. Here we teach you about the first and most important one.
a cognitive tool
When the stakes are high you need a cognitive tool that will lower the stress. This one can do just that in an airway emergency.
two important concepts
The twin concepts of OPTIMIZATION & BEST EFFORT are powerful tools to protect your patient in an airway emergency, and we will explore them here.
You could stop here, but why would you want to? You can visit the related content below to complete your induction into the OxygeNATION. Each space below will earn you more points towards completion.
You don’t just need an understanding of airway anatomy, you need a clinically relevant understanding of airway anatomy. Here’s what you need to know to be successful.
the 3 upper airway lifelines
The three upper airway lifelines are the foundational tools of oxygenation.
The surgical lifeline
FONA is the final common pathway for a failed airway, but knowing the path is different from walking the path. Success requires more than procedural skills: it requires cultivating a mindset that will allow you to make the cut in a moment of need.
High fidelity simulations to put your new skills to use are available at our live events.
