The Pediatric Airway Course (TPAC)
8:00-16:30 Cost: $750

Space is limited to 24 people. Register early to avoid disappointment.

The need to secure a pediatric airway is a relatively uncommon procedure for most physicians who care for injured or ill children. As a result, it is the source of considerable anxiety for may practitioners. This course will include both seminars and skills stations with a variety of airway equipment and intubatable mannequins with the focus being on securing the pediatric airway.
Key Topics: Indication for airway management, anticipating the difficult airway; selection of medications; sising and correct use of airway devices.

Learning Objectives:
After attending the course, participants will:
1. Understand the differences between a pediatric and adult airway
2. Understand the indications for advanced airway procedures in children
3. Have an approach to pediatric rapid sequence intubation
4. Be able to select and place appropriately sized equipment

Instructors: Pediatric emergency physicians, pediatric intensive care physicians, pediatric anesthetists.
