Basic Airway Workshop at Chennai – Improve your skills from the masters. Being competent in airway management is essential when dealing with patients. Your actions can make difference in someone’s life. The course is fast paced to help you complete it in a short time.


Recognize an obstructed airway

First and foremost, one needs to know when to act. Only when you identify a problem with the airway, you will be able to manage the issue that’s causing the airway compromise. Our trainers will teach you various signs that can help you identify the airway compromise in this basic airway workshop.

Use of OPA & NPA devices

If you identify an airway that’s compromised, you need to perform some basic airway maneuvers to help keep the airway open. Sometimes, that involves the use of airway adjuncts known as oropharyngeal airway (OPA) & nasopharyngeal airway( NPA) devices.

OPA usage by Staffordshire university
NPA usage by Staffordshire university

You will be trained on

  • How to choose a proper sized OPA / NPA
  • How to insert the OPA / NPA
  • How to secure the OPA / NPA
  • When to use them
  • When to avoid them (Most important)

Using BMV

Sometimes, just keeping the airway may not be sufficient. If the breathing effort fromm the victim is lacking, we may need to support with breaths via mouth to mouth ventilation or if you have a Bag-mask available, we can start using it. It is know as Bag mask Ventilation

BMV technique by Medscape

You’ll be taught on

  • How to select a proper sized mask suitable to the face
  • How to secure a proper air-tight seal on the face
  • Which kind of situations can pose a challenge in securing a seal
  • How to give oxygen when using BMV
  • How much volume to be pumped in each breath (Not too much and not too little)

Alternative airway devices – LMA & Combitube

Maintaining an open airway and ventilations using BMV alone is a challenge when you have to use them for a prolonged duration. In such situations, if you are not having advanced airway equipment or if you are not trained in using them, you should rather use alternative airway devices such as Laryngeal mask airway(LMA) & Combitube. These can help you buy time till an advanced airway can be arranged or till the victim is transferred to a better facility.

How to use an LMA
How to use a Combitube (LTS-D brand name)

You’ll be trained on

  • When to choose them
  • How to insert them
  • How to secure them
  • Different ports in them and their uses

Intubate a patient using Laryngoscope

Alternative devices should not be used for a prolonged time. When you have the equipment and expertise available, switch to an advanced endotracheal tube for reliable ventilation support. Mastering the use of laryngoscope is a real challenge and it comes with practice in your work set-up regularly. Use of various drugs during intubation is an elaborate topic and is dependent on various parameters and comorbid conditions of the patient which needs to be learnt separately (not part of this basic airway workshop).
