The Home Page for the Essential Emergency Airway Care Course (EEACC) at The Sharp End site contains links to each of the modules and those module links also contain the show notes and the references.
I only made this slide list so that I could quickly review EEACC #6 – Video Laryngoscopy.(This is the direct link to this video on Vimeo –You need to watch the video more than once).
And be sure to watch all the videos and read all the references in Dr. Brainard’s References for this video (they really are a part of the course). Click here to go to the clickable references.

So now we come to the Airway Briefing and Checklist, which is awesome, and worth watching as Dr. Brainard runs through it from 9:00 to 10:41. He runs through the Airway Briefing and Checklist in a number of the modules and each is worth watching to fix this in your mind:
The Brief References at the end of the module on Vimeo say “Brief Video Laryngoscopy Resources” but actually list the resources for the Laryngeal Mask Airway module.
So here is the link to Dr. Brainard’s web page on EEACC # 6 and on the page he has all the reference material and all are already clickable: http://www.thesharpend.org/eeacc-6-ed-video-laryngoscopy website. I have gone ahead and listed those references below for convenience:
