Let Jim DuCanto teach you how to overcome one of the most feared scenarios in emergency airway using the PAC training system. When you’re at the head of the bed and the patient’s oropharynx suddenly fills with fluids, and you suddenly feel the temperature rising in the resuscitation room, these are the problem-solving skills you want in your toolbox. 💪

James DuCanto,MD, is an anesthesiologist & master educator with special interest in developing the tools and skills required to manage massive airway contamination.

He is the inventor of the SALAD (Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy & Airway Decontamination) technique, the SALAD simulation training mannequin & the SSCOR DuCanto Catheter.
