Call Management for Difficult Airway

The Call Management for Difficult Airway class is designed to give pre-hospital personnel the education and confidence they need to effectively and efficiently manage virtually any airway issue they may encounter. This fast paced course takes students from a basic review to video laryngoscopy and SALAD in 8 hours. The Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination (S.A.L.A.D.) simulator uses suction to enhance first pass success-laryngoscopy (FPS-L) with a non-anesthetized patient in active emesis. Students will receive short lectures followed by hands on practice throughout the class. All levels of EMS provider will benefit from this class. If you are experienced or new to EMS this course will take you to the next level and then some. Hands on with airway trainers, SIM and SALAD manikins allow instructors to create realistic scenarios. Most students average at least 30 intubations per class.
