Endotracheal Intubation Course

Endotracheal intubation uses direct laryngoscopy to place an endotracheal tube into the trachea.  The endotracheal intubation course uses advanced airway manikins to teach students how to position the head in the “sniffing position” for rapid sequence intubation. The intubation course will train students how to perform bag valve mask (BVM) ventilation and in different techniques to manage a difficult airway:  sylet-guided intubations, use of intermediate airways (e.g.,  laryngeal mask airway (LMA) placement, King tube placement, Glidescope intubations or fiberoptic intubations and awake intubations.  The endotracheal intubation course will also provide specialized techniques on how to intubate morbidly obese patients.

The HPC Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures course will teach you how to perform all these procedures for airway management in addition to central lines, arterial lines, ultrasound-guided peripheral IV, IO lines, POCUS exams (RUSH exams and E-FAST exams), thoracentesis, paracentesis, lumbar punctures, chest tube placement, pigtail catheter placement, needle thoracostomy, procedural sedation, and ventilator management.

Our airway management training is a component of our live Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures CME course which teaches clinicians how to perform the 20 most essential procedures needed to work in the ER, ICU, and hospital wards.

The Jury is Still Out on Whether Awake Prone Positioning in Non-intubated Patients with COVID-19 Pneumonia Decreases Mortality or Endotracheal Intubation

COVID-19 pneumonia can be a frustrating infection to treat because we have limited medications that have proven benefit in moderate-severe infections. Patients with COVID-19 pneumonia who require up to 2L/min supplemental oxygen have at least moderate infection. Patients with severe…

Do we really need to do a modified Allen’s Test before Radial Arterial Line Insertion?

It has long been Dogma that an abnormal modified Allen’s test is a contraindication to performing a radial arterial line in that arm.  The theory behind this is that the modified Allen’s test will identify patients who have insufficient collateral circulation…
