Clinical Solutions provides the AHA Basic Airway course to understand and prepare for any issues during procedures involving the patient’s airway.
Any dentist performing sedation or providing care to a sedated patient should be able to provide airway management and ventilation for a patient encountering respiratory distress. The goal of the basic airway course is to educate the practitioner in basic airway assessment via history and physical assessment of the patient and to review relevant anatomy, physiology, and equipment. The practitioner will learn the motor skills necessary to initiate basic airway management with regards to relieving obstruction, insertion of airway adjuncts, mask ventilation, and intubation. Motor skills will be developed under supervision utilizing simulation which will include instruction in, review of and individual hands-on practice with basic pre-sedation assessment, monitoring and rescue airway management. Participants will complete a post-course evaluation of their airway skills.
