I recently completed my Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) recertification and the key to ACLS is, along with high quality Basic Life Support, high quality airway management*. Hence this post.
*To access all the my site’s airway management blog posts, most of which are simply links to YouTube videos, just type airway management in to the search box which is on the very top of the right hand column or click on airway management in the categories list just below the search box.
