Intra-Arrest Airway Management

Presentation regarding the principles and practice of pre-hospital airway management of patients in cardiac arrest

Intra-arrest airway management is time-critical and challenging. Patients need urgent intervention yet are often unfavourably positioned and team dynamics can be tested by the urgency of the situation and emotional or hostile bystanders. In this step, Andy Al Rais (KSS HEMS Doctor) reviews the principles of airway management in these scenarios.

After watching the video, you can move to the next activity, describing current developments in pre-hospital airway managements, such as the use of video laryngoscopes, in-cabin airway management and airway management in the patient with COVID-19.
