Airway management is the process of reviewing, planning, and implementing a variety of medical techniques and technologies to maintain or restore safe and effective oxygenation and breathing pathway. Patients with airway obstruction, respiratory failure, or a requirement for airway protection should undergo these procedures (e.g., for general anesthesia or due to an aspiration risk). The most critical first step is basic airway maneuvers, including positioning, supplementary oxygen, and bag-mask ventilation with or without adjuncts. Advanced airway devices are usually required for patients who have severe or persistent airway impairment, which generally include: supraglottic devices, endotracheal tubes, and surgical airway devices.

Below are the top 3 courses on airway management according to medtigo. 


1. Stanford Advanced Airway Management and Fibreoptic Course 

The Department of Anesthesiology’s Stanford Advanced Airway Management Program (SAAMP) provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary airway training to a national and international audience. Anaesthesiologists, critical care, emergency medicine, and ENT specialists will benefit from this training. The course includes over 30 evidence-based lectures, focused mini-workshops on lung separation, and immersive simulation. Learning occurs in groups of 3 to 5 participants per instructor.  


2. The Difficult Airway Course: Emergency  

The Difficult Airway Course: Emergency is the only national CME program that teaches the widely adopted, evidence-based approach to emergency airway management and is taught by a world-class faculty. Dr. Ron Walls, Dr. Michael Murphy, and Dr. Robert Luten, all airway experts, devised the course. The training, led by Calvin Brown, III, MD, focuses on assessment and decision-making so that trainees can manage any emergency airway they come across. Small group learning, hands-on activities, and medical simulations complement the learning in this practice-changing program.  

3. AHA—Airway Management 


According to the American Heart Association Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care, rescuers must prevent hyperventilation. It is to this end that the AHA devised a course for airway management.  

The American Heart Association Airway Management Course is a brand-new and one-of-a-kind curriculum that allows students to study, practice, and show various airway skills required in resuscitation. The course will increase essential airway skills competency and expand the reach of this critical skill to a broader audience of facilitators. Professionals in the field of resuscitation and airway management, such as scientists, educators, researchers, and producers of medical equipment, and healthcare providers whose career or volunteer activities need airway management abilities, may find the course valuable.
