Overview

Although a cornerstone of the practice of Anesthesiology, airway management is also frequently performed by emergency physicians, intensivists, and other clinicians. Because airway devices and techniques are constantly changing, trainees in these professions must achieve proficiency with a variety of instruments and methods, and even experienced practitioners should continually update their airway skills.

The Difficult Airway: A Practical Guide provides practical guidance on improving the success rates of airway managers of all specialties who use modern airway devices and techniques. The book addresses various clinical scenarios in a user-friendly format that mimics the approach clinicians encounter at educational workshops.

The clinically applicable information in The Difficult Airway: A Practical Guide is augmented by a DVD containing video demonstrations of airway management techniques.
