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: using an intubating stylet (e.g., Eschmann stylet or Bougie) to guide the endotracheal tube; use of intermediate airways (e.g., laryngeal mask airway [LMA] placement or King tube placement); Glidescope intubations; fiberoptic intubations and awake intubations. The endotracheal intubation course will also provide specialized techniques on how to intubate morbidly obese patients.
Our endotracheal intubation 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.
