“Tubes and Treats” – Intubation Obstacle Course (Morning Session)
Loyola’s Intubation Obstacle Course has been created to mimic real-life airway management challenges in a field context.
In addition to real-life patient scenarios, the environment is designed to mimic EMS field work. Training emphasizes basic airway skills, but it also gives providers repetitive, hands-on practice for advanced skills.
The value of realistic simulation is multifold. Although crews can go through the motions on a classroom tabletop, dark, loud, smoke-filled, distracting environments with simulators in real-world contexts gives them a more realistic environment and an accessible alternative to the human intubation experience on cadavers or in the operating room.
Approved for 3 hours of CE through IDPH
