In this module, we’ll be covering the assessment and management of airway and respiratory emergencies as well as specific conditions you’ll come in contact with in the field and on the exam. From the basics of the mechanisms of breathing to the more advanced interventions, you will take to stabilize and manage an airway. We will prepare you to face one of the most common emergencies seen in the field.

Stabilization and management of the airways is the first and most important thing the first responder will address when coming in contact with all patients.
