Appropriate airway management in the trauma patient can be one of the most challenging aspects of prehospital medicine. Research has indicated that one of the most common causes of trauma-related deaths is due to unrecognized airway compromise. Airway compromise in trauma patients can result from primary (direct) injuries to the airway itself and from secondary (indirect) injuries to surrounding tissues. The focus of this course is on traumatic injuries to the upper airway and their effect on airway management techniques.

As a result of advances in medical care and technology, many children with life-threatening illnesses and injuries -- as well as those born with serious problems -- survive. Years ago, children with special healthcare needs often were cared for in institutions or spent the majority of their lives in a hospital. Today, most of these children are cared for at home and attend schools in their communities. As these children experience routine childhood illnesses and injuries, EMS professionals will become involved with them, their families, and their caregivers. This course defines the term "children with special healthcare needs" and discusses assessment parameters and management techniques related to airway management for children with various disabilities.

When the EMT first encounters a patient, some features of the general assessment are apparent, such as gender, age, and the patient’s general level of responsiveness. In addition, the patient may be able to voice the chief complaint, or why he called EMS (e.g., chest pain). In other situations, the reason for the EMS response is obvious (such as a multi-car accident). Other aspects of assessment may not be apparent by mere observation of the patient or the scene. This course will describe the sequence and components of the primary and secondary assessments and reassessments of the medical and trauma patient, and provide information to assist the EMT to formulate an intervention plan for management.
