Abstract

Airway management of the hemorrhagic airway can be a difficult skill to master as trainee exposure to this difficult airway may be limited. In this study, we employed a hemorrhagic airway simulator along with a videolaryngoscope and the Storz Boedker-Doerges (BD) suction blade. These devices provided improved intubation performance in this model with respect to traditional direct laryngoscope (DL) and VL blades. This study shows that use of a hemorrhagic simulator could be an effective and valuable training tool in difficult airway intubation training.
