Full course description

Course Description

The Multidisciplinary Pediatric Airway Course is designed to teach the basics of airway management as well as advanced skills to manage different airway scenarios for pediatric patients to all disciplines of medicine involved in the care of children. Participants will be exposed to and become comfortable using various ventilation and intubation devices via hands-on skill stations within the Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center. Commonly-encountered scenarios, including those found in the Emergency Department, ICU, operating rooms, and pre-hospital settings, will be simulated to re-enforce and emphasize the objectives of the course.

This activity is intended for neonatologists, pediatricians, emergency medicine physicians, anesthesiologists, surgical and anesthesiology residents, respiratory therapists, nurse anesthetists, transport nurses, nurse practitioners, pre-hospital paramedics/flight nurses, and any practitioners wanting additional experience and practice at pediatric airway management.

Learning Objectives

After attending this activity, the learner will demonstrate the ability to:

  1. Identify and perform effective bag-valve mask ventilation and standard, direct laryngoscopy.
  2. Identify unique aspects of video laryngoscopy for performing a video-laryngoscopic intubation on a simulator.
  3. Describe fiberoptic intubation.
  4. Outline the approach to airway management, including personnel and device resource allocation and utilization.
  5. Explain and perform invasive/surgical airway management for the emergent airway in children on a simulator.
  6. Perform placement of a supraglottic airway.
  7. Combine effective airway management techniques in simulated real-life scenarios. 

Certificate

After successfully completing the course, learners will receive a certificate of completion from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
