"Manual of Emergency Airway Management", now in its 4th edition, is a practical guide to emergency airway management in any adult or pediatric patient and offers step-by-step instructions on techniques, drug administration, and prevention and management of complications. The book may be used in conjunction with the "Difficult Airway Course[trademark]", or on its own. The text has been reorganized to reflect the decision-making process of emergency care providers treating the patient in distress. Features include: completely reorganized chapters into cohesive sections; expanded discussion of videolaryngoscopes, including newer, low-cost alternatives; more illustrations, with expanded "how to" descriptions; and, revised and updated airway algorithms.


"This is an excellent resource for any practitioner who deals with airway management. It is easy to read, nicely illustrated, and offers clear instruction as well as urging practitioners to think critically about the airway decisions they make. The authors state in the preface that this book is revised every four years, which seems necessary with changing technologies. This edition addresses the new technologies relating to video laryngoscopy as well as some new suggestions for management of pharmacological pretreatment." Doody's Reviews (April 2013) Michael D.
