2020 Emergent Airway Management for the Hospitalist
Hospitalists are occasionally asked to perform emergent procedures. Of those, endotracheal intubation and initial ventilator management are frequently requested. This half-day session will begin with recognizing respiratory distress, progress through the use of non-invasive ventilation and supraglottic airway devices, address emergent endotracheal intubation without rapid sequence induction, and conclude with reviewing some of the basics of ventilator management.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be better able to:
- Distinguish the different interventions to address respiratory distress;
- Determine which are most useful relevant to a particular situation; and
- Demonstrate the skills needed to employ each of the airway adjuncts discussed.
