Airway Management

The 2005 American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care emphasize the need for rescuers to avoid hyperventilation.

However, providing quality education and training to healthcare providers on airway management skills used in resuscitation continues to be a challenge.

the American Heart Association Airway Management course is a new and unique program specifically designed to give students the opportunity to learn, practice and demonstrate many airway skills used in resuscitation. Healthcare providers whose occupation or volunteer activities require airway management skills, in addition to professionals in the field of resuscitation and airway management, such as scientists, educators, researchers, and manufacturers of medical devices may find the course beneficial.
