A non-profit global network of inspiring airway educators
Airway management can be defined as the medical techniques and treatments that are required to protect or establish an open connection between the lungs and the outside world to ensure oxygenation and prevent aspiration. Without oxygen all body functions cease in short time. Complications during airway management can lead to severe morbidity and mortality.
