The Duke Advanced Airway Program in the Department of Anesthesiology offers a multidisciplinary comprehensive training course in advanced airway management to attending physicians, residents, and fellows of anesthesiology, ENT, critical care, and emergency medicine.
- Evidence-based lecture series
- Difficult airway workshops
- Surgical cricothyrotomy
- Airway ultrasound
- Case-based discussions
- High-flow nasal oxygenation
Anesthesiologists, critical care physicians, emergency medicine physicians, residents and fellows of anesthesiology, critical medicine, otorhinolaryngology, and emergency medicine.
Upon completion of the course, you will be able to:
- Develop appropriate airway management strategies based on detailed physical examination, airway evaluation, radiological studies and preoperative nasal airway examination.
- Recognize signs of difficult airway and devise appropriate airway management strategy in the unanticipated difficult airway.
- Describe the techniques to adequately topicalize the airway and perform safe awake tracheal intubation in patients with difficult airway.
- Describe the techniques used for achieving lung isolation with double lumen tubes and bronchial blockers.
- Develop appropriate plans to manage patients with anticipated difficult extubation.
What is Included
- Certificate of completion
- Breakfast and lunch for both days
