2018 Arndt Advanced Skills in Airway Management Lecture Series and Hands-on Workshops

Madison, WI US
September 29, 2018

Statement of Need

The field of airway management continues to evolve. This activity is being held in response to the need for basic and advanced airway management knowledge and skills in the operating room, emergency room, intensive care unit, and non-operating room settings. The goal of this course is to teach the skills and tools of basic and advanced airway management required in elective and emergent situations, while introducing newer airway management technologies.

The course will cover supraglottic airway and videolaryngoscopy devices, cricothyroidotomy and TTJV, fiberoptic intubation, retrograde intubation, techniques for airway rescue in the setting of failed intubation, and lung isolation techniques, including double-lumen tubes and wire-guided endobronchial blockade. The course this year will also address, in particular, unique difficulties that can be encountered in the pediatric patient. The course incorporates airway skills workshops and high-fidelity simulation to practice difficult airway management techniques.

Target Audience

This activity is intended to meet the needs of clinicians and other health care professionals who require clinical skills in advanced airway management. The intended audience includes anesthesiologists, emergency room physicians, intensive care physicians, nurse anesthetists, anesthesiologist assistants, perioperative nurses, residents of various training programs, fellows, and respiratory therapists.

Elements of Competence

This CE activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties' areas of medical knowledge, patient care and procedural skills, and practice-based learning and improvement.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this educational, participants will be able to:

  1. Apply a thorough understanding and practical knowledge of the basics of airway assessment in your clinical practice.
  2. Recognize the signs of potentially difficult intubation and airway management.
  3. Develop a plan for dealing with a known difficult airway.
