Written by emergency room physicians, this guide offers an algorithmic approach to all airway problems, a detailed description of rapid sequence intubation, and step-by-step instruction in critical airway skills ranging from bag and mask ventilation through laryngoscopy and cricothyrotomy. Articles included focus on the approach to the airway, airway management techniques, pharmacological tools, mechanical ventilation, and special clinical circumstances like trauma, asthma, pregnancy, and prolonged seizure activity.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Peder Todd Lindberg, MD, PhD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This update of a 2004 book is a comprehensive description of life-saving airway management. By progressing from the basic to the more complex, it provides the basis for expert-level skill in life-and-death emergency care. It would be useful not only for physicians dedicated to excellence, but also for anyone in a position to teach airway techniques.
Purpose: The book assembles current, useful, and evidence-based recommendations on airway management. It aims to be complete, as well as concise, memorable, engaging, and practical. This is a worthy goal in emergency medicine, describing techniques that define our field and on which our patients' lives rest. Remarkably, the book accomplishes its lofty goal with outstanding success.
Audience: Both residents and senior physicians are the intended audience. The book is accessible to novices, but even advanced practitioners will benefit from the discussion. It has practical advice on subjects that readers may only think they understand well.
Features: This is a complete resource for anyone who would potentially manage a patient with an airway problem. It is engrossing, efficient, copiously studied, and concise. Full-color photos demonstrate practical advice very well. Algorithms, which might at first seem tedious, are thoroughly explained and discussed. In particular, the evidence section is well organized and well positioned at the end of each chapter.
Assessment: As the authors claim, emergency airway management is one of the defining and essential aspects of the practice of emergency medicine. For those seeking to be the highest quality practitioners of the specialty, this book is an essential tool. For those who will be the best hope of an airway for a critically ill patient, the skills and knowledge in this book could certainly mean the difference between life and death. The book appeals to the best drives of the dedicated emergency physician, making study a joy, rather than a slog. It updates the field, even it's own past recommendations, and demonstrates the expertise of its authors. Each chapter gives the feel of conversing with a long-experienced master with a nuanced view of the literature and how it has evolved over time. Though I picked up the book with some skepticism, I now highly recommend it.
