Emergency Airway Management in Critically Ill

Latest course update: January 2017

The airway is the first priority in the assessment and management of the seriously ill or injured patient. What happens in the first minutes of a resuscitation may significantly determine a patient's chances of survival, risk for complications and long term disability. In this topic we examine the procedure and techniques for treating airway obstruction and explore the procedure for providing definitive airway management using the technique of rapid sequence intubation.

The course explores the following topics:

1. Core principles in the assessment and management of the emergency airway

2. Preparing for definitive airway management

3. Pharmacology of the agents required in rapid sequence intubation

4. Rapid sequence intubation - procedure and complications
