The Difficult Airway Course: Emergency Returns to Boston Twice in 2016


FARMINGTON, Connecticut.—Airway Management Education Center is pleased to announce The Difficult Airway Course: Emergency™ will hold two events in Boston, Massachusetts in 2016. The course will be held at the Hyatt Regency Boston in the Spring April 29 – May 1, and again in the Autumn September 30 – October 2

The Difficult Airway Course: Emergency is an intensive immersion experience in difficult and failed airway management for Emergency Physicians and others tasked with emergency airway management. During this 2 ½ day program, a world-class faculty provides instruction in advanced airway techniques and offers “pearls” that benefit even the most experienced providers. Through hands-on sessions with proven airway devices and challenging Code Airway™ simulations, the faculty leads attendees through the evaluation and decision-making process for managing difficult and failed airways.

“Attendees of our course take their airway management skills to a whole new level in one short weekend,” says Calvin Brown, III, MD, Director of Faculty Affairs and Attending EM Physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and a National Course Director. “We want them to be ready when the next morbidly obese, asthmatic with ankylosing spondylitis rolls into the ED and requires intubation.”
