The need for realistic airway manikins is paramount. Paramedic students need to practice techniques and be able to identify landmarks in actual patients based on what they see in the manikin. The new Adult Deluxe Airway Management Head from Simulaids offers realistic anatomical landmarks with the ability to practice all BLS and ALS airway adjuncts. With features such as tongue edema and laryngospasm, you can easily develop challenging scenarios. Cricothyrotomy can be performed on the manikin, and it also has bilateral carotid pulses. For airway practice, itÌs available on a board as an upgrade to existing STAT or PDA STAT Simulators.
