Airway Management Physician Update

Miami, FL US
September 18, 2017

Baptist Health affiliated hospitals require that non-anesthesiologist physicians who perform moderate sedation maintain, as requirements of credentialing, current certification of ACLS, PALS, and/or NRP or an alternative TWO-PART education option described in detail below. This American Heart Association Airway Management course is PART 2 of the alternative education option. 

PART 1. Physicians can complete the Healthcare Provider Basic Life Support (BLS) certification either in a live BHSF class or in the blended format which includes an online BLS training followed by an in person skills practice and testing session.  For more information about these BLS certification courses, contact Baptist Health’s Resuscitation and Patient Care Simulation Department at (786) 594-6787.

PART 2. Physicians will complete a live airway management class conducted by the Resuscitation and Patient Care Simulation Department. The AHA Airway Management course is a unique program designed to give participants the chance to learn, practice and demonstrate their ability in applying many airway skills used in resuscitation.
