Here, you'll find the core knowledge and accompanying management protocols necessary to assess, oxygenate, intubate, and monitor patients requiring emergency airway management. In each chapter, this high-yield coverage is supported by evidence-based algorithms, synoptic tips, and real-world case studies that show you how to resolve any difficult airway scenario you would likely encounter in clinical practice.
