Approach to Pediatric Emergency Airway Management

Respiratory failure requiring advanced airway management is a rare but critical skill set for all EM providers. We are privileged to sit down and chat with a true pediatric airway expert and medical educator, Dr. Joshua Nagler from Boston Children’s Hospital. In this podcast we will highlight key anatomic, physiologic and cognitive considerations to consider when managing this type of child. We will review common pitfalls and touch on maintaining our procedural competency and comfort through novel educational strategies highlighting the potential educational and quality assurance role of video laryngoscopy.
