This activity is directed to emergency medicine physicians, physician assistants, nurses, residents, and other healthcare professionals who are seeking education in airway management.
- Assess the risks and benefits of using muscle relaxants (rapid sequence intubation) in emergency airways and incorporating strategies for safe practice.
- Develop the skill to predict difficult airways, and how prediction has different significance and effectiveness in elective vs. emergent airways.
- Incorporate the use of mask ventilation and rescue ventilation in safely using RSI in emergency patients.
- Define indications and contra-indications to using RSI in emergency airways improving patient safety.
- Review clinical scenarios in which awake nasal or surgical airways are the preferred route of intubation.
- Understand that the risk and benefits of using RSI is dependent not only on the patient’s externally visible anatomy, but significantly influenced by the clinical scenario necessitating emergent intubation.
- Incorporate short safe apnea times into practice when encountering difficult ventilation and difficult intubations.
