Dr. John Sakles is a Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Arizona. While at the University of Arizona, he helped create a database that logs every intubation. These logs have turned into published work, and help to track the way they have improved their practices for airway management.
“Airway management is one of the most important skills in emergency medicine,” Sakles says. He finds that it important to always keep up with the latest research in the field, so that you never fall behind on new techniques that could potentially be life-saving. “There is so much to learn that has come out just in the last few years, so stay up to date with all the new technology and advancements.”
Sakles loves teaching because it gives him the chance to make a positive impact on more lives. He often finds that right after he teaches a course, someone will reach out and say they immediately used the skills they learned at work.
