nextgen learning to elevate your airway practice
On the day the first camera was placed at the end of a laryngoscope, blade geometry became liberated from its requirement to facilitate a direct line of sight to the glottic opening. Hyperangulated devices leverage that full potential to enhance views because they’re designed to follow and not flatten the primary curve. Their ability to look around structures like the tongue is their strength, but they challenge the clinician who uses them to have a greater understanding of airway geometry (not just anatomy) and comfort with a second distinct tool in the rigid stylet, along with a new set of skills that assist with tube delivery. If you’re interested in mastering the hyper-angulated video laryngoscope, this is your learning space.

Then, let the same enhanced digital content guide you through our uniquely immersive, interactive physical spaces for hands-on procedure training, skills challenges, expert coaching, and high-fidelity simulations. Welcome to next-generation training designed to elevate your airway practice.
Hyperangulated video laryngoscopy (HAVL) is an effective device but requires new skills, the addition of a new tool, and an upgraded mental model to leverage its full potential. Let’s get into it here.
What’s so different about HAVL? It starts with the blade. Here is everything you need to know.
the rigid stylet
With its aggressive angulation, a regular old stylet just won’t do. Introducing the rigid stylet. A new tool that requires a new set of skills.
a better mental model
A tool is only as good as the mental model that wields it. HAVL requires upgrading your mental model to translate that 2D image on the screen into 3D tracheal access.
Now it’s time to perform HAVL. Review this content and then it’s time for some hands-on guided practice.
