The Anatomically Difficult AirwayExpected or unexpected, anatomically difficult airways require more than skill with a laryngoscope. Use this space to prepare for the unexpected, because while failure happens, a failure to plan for failure never should.Rohan Panchamia
The Contaminated AirwayHow to managing a massively contaminated airway effectively now is essential core training for those who manage difficult airways. Learn the SALAD technique and build your confidence. Jim DuCanto
The Physiologically Difficult AirwayThere’s a dangerous intersection between critically ill physiology and intubation. If you don’t want to crash and burn, you must pay attention to the number one rule of the road “resuscitate before you intubate.Sara Murphy
The Situationally Difficult AirwayCritical concepts from some of the worlds most skilled prehospital retrieval teams, face down a series of difficult airway situations, learn skills that will help you own any unfamiliar space in which you may find yourself, and develop a strategy to overcome the inevitable stress response in our one of a kind stress lab.Chris Root
The Pediatric AirwayChildren have many anatomical & physiological differences from adults. Our team covers all the concepts tools & skills you’ll need to successfully manage any pediatric airway emergency

The Fearless FONA MindsetThe Fearless FONA Mindset focuses on cultivating all the skills required to successfully perform a surgical airway in the real world.Jonathan St George
The Evolution of the Tube Introducerthey’re not just for difficult airways, but are evolving to meet the challenges of today’s technology. Journey with us to master these devices.Rohan Panchamia
The Neonatal AirwayThis unique subset of patients may be the most difficult you will ever face. Let our team of neonatal experts show you how.Susan Fraymovich
Fiberoptic Intubation for the Age of VLWant to add this skill set to your toolkit, but unsure where to start, or if it’s even relevant to your practice? We give you fiberoptic training for the real world with tools you can apply now.. Ralph Slepian
Dynamic Tracheal AccessImprove your first pass success rate and learn concepts, skills and tools that will take you into the future of more dynamic tracheal access. Sean Runnels
Live Demonstrations

Throughout faculty experts will be giving live demonstrations of key skills. Map your journey through the spaces to hit the ones you want to see. We will send notifications out to everyone 5 minutes before the start of each demonstration.

Simulation Challenges
Put your new skills into action

We collaborate with our outstanding Simulation Center and our team of SIM experts to create a series of simulation based experiences. Use the learning installations as immersive flipped classrooms: absorb key concepts, use the training labs for guided self-practice, get expert coaching and then put your new skills to the test. The best part is, when you’re done you can use the feedback from the debrief to head back into the installations with more focus revisit the skills you want to improve. Rapid cycling comes to airway training.
