Advanced Airway and Critical Care Course - Yellowstone/Tetons

Moran, WY US
May 31, 2023 to June 2, 2023

World's Most Beautiful Airway Course

Come to one of the most extraordinary places of natural beauty in North America. Jackson Lake Lodge is an incredible venue at the north end of the Tetons and the southern entrance to Yellowstone National Park. It offers amazing views of the Tetons and abundant wildlife including moose, bison and elk. Recharge your soul while gaining procedural confidence and skills. The schedule is designed to facilitate vacation time. The hotel is only 27 miles from Jackson airport (with direct flights from Denver, Salt Lake City, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Minneapolis, Chicago, Newark, Atlanta, San Francisco, Houston, and Los Angeles).

The Advanced Airway Course focuses on advanced airway management techniques using mannequins to practice surgical airways including flexible fiberoptics, video laryngoscopes, and surgical airways. We review airway anatomy using a variety of imaging modalities and discuss critical care cases involving difficult airway management. In addition we review rescue ventilation devices, strategies to prevent desaturation, and the use of non-invasive ventilation and oxygenation devices.

Specialized and custom designed airway manikins provide anatomic variation for hands-on practice with various laryngoscopes, fiberscopes, and surgical devices. Attendees practice nasoendoscopy using sterile sheaths on themselves and each other. (Participants on anticoagulants should not undergo nasoendoscopy.)

What makes this Advanced Airway Course different from other airway courses?

There is extensive hands-on practice with a wide variety of devices. In addition to the nasoendoscopy experience, unique intubation mannequins and surgical airway models offer anatomic variation and different intubation challenges. The nasoendoscopy experience provides an opportunity to see a wide variety of live-tissue airway anatomy.

Target Audience

The Advanced Airway Course is tailored to emergency physicians, but critical care physicians, anesthesiologists, and other clinicians responsible for emergency and difficult airway management are encouraged to attend.
