Course description & learning objectives
Airway Management is a major topic in the Emergency Department. Anesthesiologists are not always available; therefore each member of the ED needs to be able to perform Airway Management. To secure the airway of a patient, it is necessary to know the different devices and techniques and also to consider, that the algorithm is different to the familiar pre-hospital and OR airway algorithm.
In this course, participants will learn about basic and difficult Airway Management. Furthermore, the technique of anaesthetization will be taught.
All participants will be able to train the different techniques and devices on intubation trainers.
