"Mastering the prehospital airway - tips and tricks for paramedics of the future"
A challenge for paramedics (and paramedic students) is translating skill based training predominantly in manikins and simulated settings to patients in challenging settings. The opportunity to hone airway skills is generally limited. This talk aims to provide tips and tricks which are readily translatable to patients in need of airway support.
