The objective of this course is for the trainees to obtain a working knowledge and proficiency of the American Society of Anesthesiologists Difficult Airway Management Guidelines and its associated airway management techniques. Didactic training focuses on evaluation of the airway and the ASA Difficult Airway Management Guidelines. Simulator training focuses on psychomotor skill sets for various airway management techniques and devices including: retrograde intubation, lighted stylet, ventilating tube exchanger, laryngeal mask airway, combitube, transtracheal jet ventilation, and cricothyrotomy. After skill set training, trainees are presented with a range of difficult airway scenarios on the simulator, which they manage in "real-time" to gain experience and confidence in their training.
The primary objectives of this course are to provide the anesthesiology trainee with a firm foundation in all aspects of principles and psychomotor skill sets necessary to rapidly become clinically proficient in the basic and advance uses of the fiberoptic bronchoscope in the anesthesia domain. By the conclusion of this course, the trainee will value the role the fiberoptic brochoscope plays in airway management, and the necessity for them to seek out clinical opportunities to develop clinical expertise.
