About us

Overview

Flexible Bronchoscopic Intubation (FBI) has become a mainstay of difficult airway management in awake, sedated, and anesthetized patients; its use and value is widely accepted and its role is recognized in guidelines for management of both anticipated and unanticipated difficult airways. 
 
Guidelines assume FBI to be a basic skill. Learning curves suggest that true expertise may only be achieved after 45 flexible intubations. Trainees, at the completion of their training, have been shown to have performed only a fraction of these numbers. All in all, experience has shown that confidence in using FBI is low. 

In small groups, this comprehensive, hands-on, simulation-based, state-of-the-art MasterClass will provide physicians with the best knowledge, and solid technical skills for effectively managing challenging airways in diverse clinical situations. 

Content

Skill-Stations: 
Dexterity exercises with the bronchoscope, basic techniques, combined techniques, and techniques in complex situations will be practiced. Specific simulators and latest video-bronchoscope technology will be used to achieve the learning objectives.

Result

At the conclusion of this one-day MasterClass, participants will be able to: 

  • Determine proper patient selection and preparation for awake flexible bronchoscopic intubation. 
  • Perform adequate topical anesthesia of the airway 
  • Confidently navigate an endoscope for flexible bronchoscopic intubations 
  • Master flexible bronchoscopic intubations in the adult patient in several clinical situations of varying complexity
