Description

Written by international experts in a style that's concise, practical and to the point, Airway Management in Emergencies covers all the options -- both medical and surgical -- for managing any patient's airway in an emergency.

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.
