AOD hybrid airway workshop

Many things have changed over the pandemic years, including how we learn. AOD has developed a new course with you in mind.  Though everyone wants hands-on learning, there are still important thought processes that go into every instance of airway management.
For example: 
-When should I consider awake intubation? 
-What type of video laryngoscope do I need  in this case?
-What's my next move in a  
  failed airway?  
-What's my next move in a failed awake intubation?
-is this patient at risk at time
  of extubation?
-critical updates in the 2022  
  ASA airway guidelines.

This course combines didactic learning (online, and at your convenience over the course of two months) with zoom or in-person Q&A, and in-person hands-on lab learning. 

You can choose between attending the Q&A and hands-on lab on Thursday,  February 2 (Q&A zoom only),  Friday,  February 3 or Saturday, February 4.  (Mix and match!) 

(See "Schedule" below for zoom and in-person options)

How do I complete all 3 parts of this course and at my convenience?

In-person course location

After completing the online learning, learners attend the Q&A* and hands-on laboratory at the Yale-New Haven Hospital Park Street auditorium located at 55 Park Street  and attached to the Air Rights Garage  (see "Directions to the live events").

Objectives
After attending this workshop the learner will be able to:

1) develop an appropriate airway management plan based on the findings of a focused medical history and airway physical exam, and apply these plans to patient care.

2) apply principles of advanced airway evaluation to the synthesis of an appropriate airway plan.

3) assess their performance of airway rescue and routine tracheal intubation with the incorporation of modern optical/video devices.

4) assess their performance of airway rescue and routine airway management with the incorporation of modern supraglottic airways.

5) apply patient preparation techniques in the performance of awake tracheal intubation.

6) apply techniques of minimally invasive airway rescue; evaluate the potential for failed tracheal extubation and develop a plan for emergency reintubation.
