EMT-B 2002 Airway Management

There is nothing a student needs to understand more
than the importance of obtaining and maintaining a patient's airway.  The "A" in ABC's is paramount in patient care.
If a patient doesn't have a good airway, nothing else matters!

Academy Instructor John McIntosh demonstrates how to
insert an nasopharyngeal airway........ on himself

See, this is what it's supposed to look like when you're done! 


Students learn every aspect of airway management from
tasks so basic as attaching a regulator to an oxygen bottle

Students are well versed in the latest equipment and techniques
in EMS such as the double-lumen airway or Combitube (TM)

Students are given plenty of one-on-one time with the instructors

Academy equipment is made available to students whenever
they may need it - before, during and after class.  Special
arrangements can even be made for after hours access
