Advanced Airway Management

Camden Education Unlimited, LLC has over 16 years of experience in providing basic and advanced airway management to diverse medical specialties including emergency, critical care, dental, air medical, and prehospital medical providers.  Our faculty were instrumental in the development of The Difficult Airway Course: EMS™, which today is offered across the United States and in more than a dozen international countries. 

The management of an emergency airway crisis can mean the difference between a positive outcome or a potentially negligent case. Camden Education Unlimited can ensure providers are trained in proven techniques to ensure positive outcomes every time.

The Difficult Airway Course: EMS™

The Difficult Airway Course: EMS (TDAC:EMS) is regarded as a premier educational program in the area of airway management.  This two-day program in out-of-hospital airway management will equip providers to more effectively meet the challenges of comprehensive airway management in the field.  Furthermore, this course is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE), as are all EMS focused airway management curriculum.

This two-day, 16-hour, immersion style program, emphasizing basic and advanced airway anatomy and physiology, basic and advanced airway management psychomotor skills, and proven techniques to identifying airways that pose predictable management challenges.  Curriculum includes review and discussion of pharmacologic agents used to attenuate normal physiological response to airway management, including the latest evidence-based science toward rapid sequence intubation using sedatives and paralytics.  Additionally, this course provides a hands-on surgical airway lab utilizing pig trachea, SALAD intubation techniques, varying simulator positioning to pose the most challenging environments, and emphasis on post-intubation management.

Essentials of Airway Management™ (EAM)

Essentials of Airway Management (EAM) is a one-day, 8 hour, immersion style program, emphasizing all the aspects of advanced airway management skill set and predictable management challenges reviewed in The Difficult Airway Course: EMS program but without the time and material covering medication facilitated airway management. This program works well in systems that do not provide out-of-hospital medication assisted airway management.

Fundamentals of Airway Management™ (FAM)

Fundamentals of Airway Management (FAM) is a one-day, 8 hour, skills focused program emphasizing the proper use and management of patients receiving basic airway management and extra-glottic airway devices. This program is best focused towards Basic Life Support and first responder personnel.

Opportunities exist to become an Authorized Training Center of the Difficult Airway Course:EMS, Essentials of Airway Management (EAM), and Fundamentals of Airway Management (FAM).  Contact us for further details.
