Laryngeal Mask Airway Course: LMA Course

A laryngeal mask airway (LMA) is an intermediate airway that is used as a rescue airway for failed endotracheal intubations in the ER or ICU. The laryngeal mask airway course uses advanced airway manikins to teach students the technique of LMA placement.  The LMA course also covers the limitations of the laryngeal mask airway. 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 LMA 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.
