About this Conference:
This is a full-day conference held at ETSU Quillen College of Medicine, with Basic Airway instruction during the morning sessions and Advanced Airway instruction in the afternoon. A large group didactic session begins the day to present the clinical anatomy and evidence-based approaches to the procedure. This is followed by small group, experiential sessions where participants will observe and identify relevant anatomy via pro-sections and virtual reality, demonstrate competency for these procedures on a surgical reality donors prepared through the modified Thiel embalming method, and apply the skills and knowledge gained in a simulation scenario. The afternoon sessions will focus on difficult and surgical airways.
