During the October 10, EMS Live in Wisconsin podcast, PAAW Executive Director Joe Covelli spoke with Acting Director Eric Lang and long-time Paramedic Bob Barrix, both with Sun Prairie EMS, regarding their use, training and experience with video laryngoscopes in the field.

What Sun Prairie EMS has learned in deploying use of video laryngoscopes:

  • Continued simulation mannequin training is necessary, skill retention was lacking.
  • Need to stress to the users of the device to use it how it was designed.
  • Medics were not suctioning adequately prior to attempted placement.
  • Each medic needed to increase familiarity with devices, systems and airway anatomy.
  • The overall goal was ‘mastering the normal’, which resulted in difficult airway management becoming easy and impossible airways becoming possible to manage.
