COVID-19 Airway Management Resource Center Launched

April 27, 2020

Airway Management Education Center announces the launch of the COVID-19 Airway Management Resource Center.

The faculty of The Difficult Airway Course™ are committed to arming health care providers with the latest information about emergency airway management in critically ill patients with known or suspected COVID-19, while keeping treatment teams as safe as possible.  With this in mind, AMEC is hosting a carefully curated collection of the most relevant materials dealing specifically with airway management in the COVID-19 patient.

Edited by Michael Gibbs, MD, this Resource Center is being continuously updated as new information becomes available.

“We recognize that medical providers are busy on the front lines of this pandemic and may not have time to filter through the overwhelming amount of important publications being released,” says Terry Steele, Executive Director of AMEC. “We appreciate their hard work and sacrifices and are dedicated to supporting their efforts in any way possible.”
