Creators of The Difficult Airway Course™ Announce Upgrade of

The Difficult Airway App™ to Version 1.5 - Only $2.99!

Mobile app for iPhone offers essential support to clinicians who manage emergency airways.

 

FARMINGTON, Conn.—Airway Management Education Center, provider of The Difficult Airway Course™, announces the release of version 1.5 of The Difficult Airway App™, a mobile application developed for the iPhone and iPod touch.  Version 1.5 of the app is available for purchase on the iTunes App Store and current users can upgrade for free. 

 

The Difficult Airway App™ is an essential tool for clinicians who manage emergency airways in any setting: the ED, ICU, in-patient unit or the many EMS practice environments.  The Version 1.5 upgrade coincides with the recent release of the 4th edition of the Manual of Emergency Airway Management by Ron M. Walls, MD and Michael F. Murphy, MD.  In the 4th edition, the authors introduce updated airway algorithms, a new mnemonic for predicting difficult cricothyrotomy and other revisions based on the most current research in the field.  “With Version 1.5, The Difficult Airway App™ matches the Manual and reflects the latest thinking in airway management,” says Ron M. Walls, MD, Chairman of Emergency Medicine, Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Professor, Harvard Medical School.  “In addition, we incorporated user feedback to make the App easier to use.”

 

“The app is unique in four important ways,” says Dr. Walls.  “It contains a highly sophisticated, yet simple to use, drug dosing calculator that accounts for obesity and other vital considerations while automatically calculating recommended RSI drugs and doses.  It provides decision-support in the form of algorithms and mnemonics that were developed and fine-tuned for more than a decade by world-renowned airway experts.  Thirdly, it is the only mobile app that offers a pediatric drug dosage calculator based on the Broselow-Luten color system.  And, finally, the app includes valuable instructional resources (including videos, photos and illustrations) that draw from the content of The Difficult Airway Courses.”

 

The Difficult Airway App™ features:

Easy, Yet Sophisticated Adult and Pediatric Drug Dosing

  • For adult dosing, a few simple clicks bring you to drug doses that take into account patient weight, body habitus, hemodynamics and special considerations (i.e., asthma, cardiovascular disease and elevated intracranial pressure).
  • The pediatric drug dosing function incorporates the color-coded system created by James Broselow, MD and Robert C. Luten, MD for the rapid, safe management of pediatric airway cases.
  • Users can customize the calculator to include only the drugs available to them.

Decision-making Support

  • Straight-forward decision trees allow you to quickly determine the best approach to your patient’s airway.
  • Easy mnemonics walk you through predictors of a difficult airway, including difficult laryngoscopy, difficult BMV, difficult extraglottic device use and difficult cricothyrotomy.
  • Pearls of wisdom, based on evidence and expert opinion, are offered throughout.

Rapid Sequence Intubation

 

  • The 7 – Ps of RSI as developed by Dr. Ron Walls: a step-by-step guide for safe, effective RSI in adults and children, with notes from the developers of The Difficult Airway Course™.
  • Adult and pediatric drug dosing.
  • Special sections on ventilation settings for children, contraindications to SCh and treatment of hyperkalemia.
