Pediatric Difficult Airway Management
The AirSim Pierre Robin X is ideal for practicing airway obstruction management techniques.
The TruCorp AirSim® Pierre Robin X manikin highlights difficult airway management techniques for infants with Pierre Robin Sequence (PRS) featuring an airway with various congenital defects. We also carry a full line of pediatric airway trainers for realistic child and infant airway management training.
Causes of Difficult Tracheal Intubation
Middle-aged or elderly adult patients are more likely to present difficult endotracheal intubation due to changes brought on by aging including:
- Decreased thyromental distance
- Cervical joint rigidity
- Smaller interincisor gap
As the elderly population continues to increase, difficult airway management training becomes increasingly important. TruCorp difficult airway trainers are the most realistic and durable intubation manikins available for advanced medical procedure training.
Additional causes of difficult tracheal intubation include:
- Craniofacial abnormalities
- Dentition such as protrusive maxillary incisors
Difficult airway management can include both difficult tracheal intubation (DTI) and difficult mask ventilation (DMV). TruCorp difficult airway trainers provide crucial training for anesthesiologists, doctors, advanced practice nurses and EMTs. Difficult airway manikins can also be used for difficult laryngoscopy training and nasal intubation practice.
