Airway Management

Airway Management

A short certification course that prepares healthcare providers to create and maintain a patient airway - often taken with BLS and OT.

The Canadian Red Cross Airway Management course is designed to give healthcare providers the knowledge and skills necessary to create a patient airway, the interventions to maintain it, and the equipment available to carry out these skills. This course is often taken in conjunction with the Basic Life Support and Oxygen Therapy courses, but can also be taken on it's own.

Participants will gain the knowledge and skills required to provide the appropriate interventions, including measuring and inserting the applicable airway adjunt based on the patient's condition.

We are doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Masks are mandatory for the duration of the course, and you can read our full COVID-19 Safety Plan in our Resources section.

Great instructor. Presented the material in an angaging way. I know he noticed that people were fading on the second day so he got everyone to stand quick and do something. Much more engaging than other first aid courses I’ve taken.

Awesome! Was not looking forward to doing the course because of a CPR course I did last year with a different company that was not very good, but was very happy with this course. It was entertaining, well taught and I feel confident now in an emergency.
