Course Description

Airway management is an essential skill for clinicians in critical situations and is fundamental to the medical practice. Airway management is a life-saving skill all medics must be well-versed in. It is the most important priority in the management of the severely injured patient. It is essential to open and clear the airway to allow free access of air to the distal endobronchial tree. Both manual methods and the special devices are used for opening the airway. The important steps include assessment, planning, and a series of medical procedures to maintain or restore the patients’ breathing or ventilation. Lack of skills can lead to reduced blood oxygen levels in individuals and can be life-threatening.
