24-7 EMS Online: Supraglottic Airway Management

List Price: $5.95
Product Code: EMS1125

Ensuring an open and clear airway is one of the highest priorities in emergency medical care. Oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal airways can provide some basic airway management, but don’t protect the airway completely. Intubation, long considered the gold standard for airway management, provides excellent airway protection but requires significant equipment and training. 

Supraglottic airway devices fill the gap between basic airway tools and intubation, especially for EMS providers with limited experience and training.

24-7 EMS Online: Code Management (V2)

List Price: $5.95
Product Code: EMS1085

Each year, an estimated 295,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests are treated by EMS responders. Succesful outcomes rely upon a well-planned and well-rehearsed approach to caring for cardiac arrest patients.

Resuscitation training and education cannot be thought of as a single skill, but rather the synergy of many pactitioners working together to achieve an optimal outcome. Effective code management depends on the expedient administration of care by a highly skilled team of rescuers. Rescuers working within a team must have a clear understanding of roles, responsibilities, and corresponding expectations.

This course reaffirms the skills and tools used in resuscitation efforts, and focuses on the team-based approach to improve resuscitation performance and yield better patient outcomes.

Featuring Jon Politis, MPA, NREMT-P
