This course emphasizes airway assessment, decision-making and management.  Our goal is to enable participants to manage any airway obstruction which they may encounter in their practice of medicine or dentistry.  Our “practice-changing” program offers various hands-on stations which shall reinforce learning with diagrams, videos and ultrasonography. There will be ample practice time with a variety of airway equipment, taught by our expert airway faculty.

Program Highlights

  • Small faculty-to-student ratio
  • Neonatal, Pediatric and Adult Mannequins available
  • Identify airway landmarks and associated anomalies, and their impact on ventilation
