TRANSITION TO RESIDENCY – AIRWAY EDITION

PRACTICAL EMERGENCY AIRWAY TRAINING FOR EVERY INTERN


“If I were to come up with a set of laws for the emergency airway this would be the first:

Prioritize Oxygenation

– Jonathan St George MD – Creator of the Protected Airway Course

It’s 3am and you’re on call. The nurse pages you to come urgently into a patient’s room. You find a patient who is pale and unresponsive; with an oxygen saturation on the monitor of 64%. What should you do next…

ABOUT THIS learning space

The Protected Airway Collaborative has been teaching essential airway skills to emergency medicine and critical care clinicians for years. Now we bring our experience and next generation learning style to you so you can be prepared for an airway emergency on day one of your intern year.

To succeed you’ll need a no nonsense set of concepts, skills and tools that are there for you when you need them, and we give them to you here in our uniquely immersive, interactive and self-directed teaching style designed to enhance knowledge translation so that what you learn today will be there for you tomorrow.

Enjoy. 😊


TIME REQUIRED: 90 MINUTES

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE

Everything you need and nothing you don’t to get you through an airway emergency

Learn how to make this first law the foundation of all your training

Yes, asking for help is a skill. Learn how to do it well in this space

In the current clinical environment personal safety is where it all starts

  • Face Mask Ventilation
  • Supraglottic Airway Device
  • Endotracheal Intubation

These are your three upper airway lifelines. They all deliver lifesaving oxygen, but they can be even more powerful if you know how to use them together

The twin concepts of optimization and best effort will help you succeed at achieving the first law. Learn how

Breathe, just breathe in the air

Why it matters

Many people badly underestimate the need for good BVM skills. Don’t be one of them

The supraglottic airway device (SAD) has lots of advantages. In this space we demonstrate all you need to know to use these important devices

Placing an endotracheal tube requires skill with a laryngoscope. In this space we break it down into a step by step approach that can improve your success

Human factors and stress play a critical role in your ability to act during an airway emergency. Here we discuss how to rethink failure to keep you on track in the challenges you will face ahead
