Just follow the link above for all of the fun things we've collected and built on the subject of airway management. More to come and, as always, let us know if there's things missing in our offerings!
We built this resource for transport clinicians to learn more about vent management in the field, but it's also applicable to other clinicians who work with vents. Take a look and let us know what you think!

And for the backstory, discussion of things moving forward, and other fun things, continue to the full page.
Protocols in EMS tend to read like books: lots of text, a few charts, maybe some clinical context/ further information. We suggest a different approach to providing guidance to clinicians based on the idea that such direction should be formatted in a way that makes it easier to utilize in the field. Take a look at a few of the concepts here and feel free to reach out with feedback and/ or additional examples.

Let's say we want to get a plan for continuing education or ongoing training hashed out for our agency. There are a lot of factors to consider and an overwhelming number of pieces to fit together. Here's one take on the idea. We'll walk you through putting it all together one step at a time. The result is a training schedule that can be carried out by ground-level clinicians during scheduled time.
This page is and will be a collection of virtual note cards that we've put together for a few things. As time allows, we'll expand the stuff on offer. And eventually we'll get a video up over on The Tech Side to talk about how to use apps like Brainscape and AnkiApp to facilitate this sort of self-study
