Airway on Demand (AOD) is an A-to-Z update of the current trends in clinical airway management designed for the practicing anesthesiologist. The course will cover topics such as the new ASA difficult airway guidelines, advanced airway evaluation, pediatric airway management, awake intubation, new video laryngoscopes, the role of new supraglottic airways in difficult airway management, invasive airway access and difficult extubation. AOD is being offered to the clinician who wants a solid review of the current devices and techniques, before attending SAM, where more advanced ideas are shared.

1. Develop an appropriate airway management plan based on the findings of a focused medical history and airway     physical exam, and apply these plans to patient care.
2. Apply principles of advanced airway evaluation to the synthesis of an appropriate airway plan.
3. Assess their plan of airway rescue and routine tracheal intubation with the incorporation of modern supraglottic airways.
4. Assess their pain of airway rescue and routine airway management with the incorporation of modern supraglottic airways.
5. Apply patient preparation techniques in the performance of awake tracheal intubation
6. Apply techniques of minimally invasive airway rescue.
7. Evaluate the potential for failed tracheal extubation and develop a plan for emergency reintubation.
