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).

Our King tube placement 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.
