King Tube Course

A King tube is an intermediate airway that is used as a rescue airway for failed endotracheal intubation.  The King tube airway is an option for difficult airway management.  The King tube placement course uses advanced airway manikins to teach students how to place a King tube.  The King tube airway course also teaches students how to perform a King tube exchange for an endotracheal tube using a Bougie (Eschmann stylet). 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) placementKing tube placementGlidescope 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 linesarterial linesultrasound-guided peripheral IVIO lines, POCUS exams (RUSH exams and E-FAST exams), thoracentesisparacentesislumbar punctureschest tube placementpigtail catheter placementneedle thoracostomy, procedural sedation, and ventilator management.

Our King tube 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.
