Simulators, Training, Airway Management/Intubation
Definition : Simulators designed for use in airway management and intubation training. These simulators usually include an anatomic model of the human head, neck and torso with life-size anatomic reproductions of the nose, tongue, oral and nasal pharynx, larynx, epiglottis, vocal cords, trachea, esophagus, and stomach. The anatomic models can be intubated with the same equipment used on actual patients; some manikins can simulate patient vomiting. Instructors can use airway management anatomic models to demonstrate the proper way to perform face mask ventilation, endotracheal or nasotracheal intubation, and suction. Emergency medical technicians and other healthcare workers can practice intubation techniques and clearing obstructions from the airway. Manikins used in these simulators are available in different body types and sizes such as infant, child, adult, and bariatric.
