COVID-19 Airway Management: A Simulation Case for Adult Emergency Department Providers

Description

The goal of the simulation is to prepare an emergency medicine team to manage a patient suspected of COVID-19 requiring endotracheal intubation, a high-risk aerosol generating procedure. By the end of this session, learners will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate and adhere to donning and doffing of PPE for high-risk aerosol generating procedures in suspected COVID-19 patients.
  2. Perform an aerosol generating procedure while maintaining precautions, including pre-brief, intubation, and post-intubation management.
  3. Demonstrate closed loop communication with interprofessional team with PPE in place and ongoing infection control procedures.
