PAC23 Live!!

A nextgen conference style designed to elevate your airway practice

Welcome to PAC. A two day airway course with an entirely new training style dedicated to improving how you learn, so that what you learn is there for you when you need it. We create completely immersive, interactive and hands on learning spaces that cover the entire breadth of airway management from beginner to expert level. Each theme based learning space is filled with opportunities to explore critical concepts, best practices, and procedure skills in a self-paced style, along with expert coaching, live demonstrations, and iterative feedback. We combine this with our high fidelity simulations and our world class cadaver lab, and access to our website of online content to create an airway conference like no other. Join us and you’ll never want to sit in a classroom again.

available Learning Installations
Open all day 9am-5pm

Enter any of our theme based learning installations for a uniquely immersive, interactive and self-directed learning style. Open throughout the entire first day of the conference, these spaces allow for complete learning freedom: explore each space any way you like, take as much time as you like, and come back as often as you like. Each installation delivers a bundle of critical concepts, best practices, clinical pearls, and guided practice for procedure skills.

DAY 2 – ANATOMY LAB

The anatomy lab at Weill Cornell Medical College is an incredible location for cadaveric airway training. With state of the art connectivity and institutional support, learners get the opportunity to perform an incredible number of intubations and airway procedures on a variety of anatomic and cadaveric models. We use small groups (max 5 per station) to ensure an abundance of hands on time and individualized coaching at every station. For more details on the curriculum click below.

Own the Head of the BedWant to feel comfortable in the airway operator’s home base? This is the learning space for you. Learn how to prepare your equipment, your patient and your team. Develop your plan, your Pre-OX/APOX, and RSI skills here. Voy Piechowski
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 AirwayCan you handle a massively contaminated airway? Learning to do this effectively is now 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 AirwayLearn critical concepts from some of the worlds most skilled prehospital retrieval teams, face down a series of difficult airway situations, that will help you own any unfamiliar airway scenario in which you may find yourself.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 
Maria Lame
The Fearless FONA MindsetWhat does it take to make “make the cut” when a failed airway happens? The 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 IntroducerBougies are back, and they’re not just for difficult airways. This learning space is about the evolution of the bougie, and other tube introducers, and how they are evolving to meet the needs 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 VLWhat is the role of fiberoptic in the age of VL? 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 on site coaching and 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 before the start of each demonstration.

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.
