Figuring Out Fiberscope
The SAEM Airway IG will host a diverse group of airway experts from across the country to lead this skill session that will provide both didactic instruction and hands-on training. Participants will perform multiple intubations, view slides of recordings from real patients and review awake intubations. A wide range of airway devices will be available during the workshop to ensure participants understand both the variety of devices and the universal techniques in order to safely and successfully manage a difficult airway.
Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:
Use a flexible intubating fiberscope for an intubation
Use the flexible intubating scope to illustrate airway anatomy
Describe the process of performing an awake intubation
