Airway Management Workshop for Emergency and Trauma Providers

Airway experts from the ED, Department of Anesthesia and Department of Surgery will discuss various aspects of difficult and emergency airway management. The 8 hour course will present essential aspects of emergency and difficult airway management using short format lectures and hands-on workshops. Workshops will include training in the use of videolaryngoscopes, cricothyroidotomy with cow tracheas, supraglottic airway devices and airway simulators.

CREST (Center for Rural Emergency Services and Trauma) was created to improve delivery of care and facilitate emergency or time-sensitive transfers of patients; and also to serve as a hub for educational initiatives relevant for emergency and trauma providers serving rural areas and patients.

Through our work in the region, we have consistently heard from many providers of a need for airway education and are pleased to offer this one day airway workshop.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, October 14th at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, New Hampshire.
