Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy Airway Decontamination

Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy Airway Decontamination UW Madison Mar 2015 from AirwayNautics on Vimeo. Movie captures the important lessons of a simulation session based upon using a rigid suction catheter (Yankauer and other variant) to decontaminate the airway of a modified Laerdal Difficult Airway Simulator mannequin. The technique described in this simulation is known as the… Continue Reading
