ECCAM Course Overview:
HANDS ON AIRWAY MANAGEMENT
Managing a critically ill patient’s airway is a significant challenge & concern to every physician whether they are Anaesthetists, Intensivists or physician covering the Emergency/Urgent care or Hospital floor.
Our 2 day ECCAM Course takes the clinician through every step of airway management from basic airway management, advanced airway management, the failed airway to post intubation care including ongoing sedation & analgesia, paralysis and ventilator management.
ECCAM Course was created following a realization that this area of our practice could be taught better. This area of our clinical practice can result in immediate better outcomes for our patients but has the potential to cause harm if done sub optimally. Many clinicians dread airway interventions in our sick patients. We reduce the anxiety surrounding the airway & provide the clinician with a formalized approach to the airway.

• The indications for intubation
• Basic airway management techniques
