Abstract

Airway management is a critical procedure and essential skill necessary for all physicians working in the emergency department. Optimal resuscitative treatment of medical and trauma patients often revolves around timely and effective airway interventions that can be challenging in the acute setting, especially in critical patients. Time-honored airway techniques and procedures combined with recent advances in rapid sequence intubation, video laryngoscopy, and further advanced airway techniques now offer emergency clinicians a wide range of exciting new options for improving this crucial component of acute care and management.
