Why Take This Course Now?
COVID-19 has kept emergency departments on heightened alert as it primarily affects the respiratory system. With this increased relevance, Airway on Demand: Emergency Medicine provides the perfect opportunity for emergency medicine providers to improve their knowledge and hone their skills one-on-one in a safe simulated environment. Unique benefits of this program are its current and timely literature, up to date instruction on devices and techniques, and robust image and graphic-forward course materials.
"… an unbelievably comprehensive airway management course which was informative and entertaining at the same time. We had practitioners from multiple departments attend the seminar and enhance our hospital's overall airway management skills."
