PAC Live!! – Exploding the Traditional Conference Style


In the world of emergency airway, there’s an important difference between knowing the path and walking the path. That’s why PAC Live!! is built around a single simple idea: that airway knowledge is useless if it can’t be successfully translated into action during the stressful, critical, and time-sensitive moments when it matters most. We created PAC in the belief that your airway training should function in the real world; that achieving effective knowledge translation requires a training platform that focuses on how you learn, and not just what you learn.

Experience Next Generation Conference Design

meet the new interactive learning space

Learning installations are a unique transformation of the learning space. It explores a new frontier in medical education: merging of digital and physical space to create self-directed, immersive, interactive and collaborative learning experiences that meet the next generation of learners where they live. We seek design inspiration far outside of traditional medical education, so we can build learning spaces for the next generation of clinicians.

About the Protected Airway

Six Learning Installations are now part of the course. Each one is theme-based and includes immersive interactive training labs, coaching stations and simulation challenges.

  • Join the OxygeNATION
  • Own the Head of the Bed
  • Anatomically Difficult Airway
  • Physiologically Difficult Airway
  • Situationally Difficult Airway
  • Pediatric Airway

Introducing The Interactive Poster


No more classrooms. Each theme based installation is built around a series of uniquely interactive posters: using impactful graphics, and embedded multimedia content that allows you to explore at your own pace and customize your journey in a way that best suits your learning needs. Then, use each poster within the space as a jumping off point for a more immersive experience in the physical space.

Theme Based & Narrative Driven


Through stories our learning becomes more powerful; embedding knowledge through our uniquely human experience. Each of our six installations are theme based so that concepts and skills can be organized into more effective cognitive constructs. Within these spaces you will also hear powerful stories from experienced clinicians and patients. Narratives that will help you understand the role human factors play in our successes and our failures. Stories that highlight why what we do matters, and why how we learn matters even more.

Simulation Challenges


High fidelity simulation, and other creative challenges such as escape the rooms are part of each installation. This component of the installation learning style allows you to solidify your new knowledge and skills by actively deploying them in a team-based environment. Debriefs by faculty help you identify areas of improvement in order to customize a path back through the installation’s content for even more focused learning. This iterative learning cycle between the digital and physical space helps to develop mastery.

Training Labs & Expert Coaching

Customized learning for your needs

Training labs and expert faculty are placed in key training stations within each installation. Each installation is an immersive “flipped classroom,” allowing you complete freedom to explore. Faculty are also free from having to teach in a one size fits all format. Instead of talking or lecturing at groups of passive learners, coaches can give you individualized feedback. The stress lab is just one of the many training labs integrated into PAC.
