Advanced training in endoscopic approach and instrumentation of the respiratory tract

Using virtual and robotic models, in this course the students acquire the necessary competencies for safely approaching the anticipated and unanticipated difficult airway.
Total teaching hours 20.00 (5.00 horas presenciales + 15.00 horas elearning)
Training aims

General objectives

  • To train in airway control using the fiberscope and resolve high-complexity situations associated with controlling and maintaining the airway unobstructed during critical medical or surgical situations and during perianaesthetic interventions.

Specific objectives

  • To perform nonselective intubation using a fiberscope.
  • To conduct a lung or lobar isolation (double-lumen tubes / bronchial blockers).
  • To conduct a fiberscope-assisted tracheal tube exchange.
  • To solve problems in the bronchial tree (atelectasis, foreign bodies, percutaneous tracheostomy assistance).
  • To perform assisted intubation using other devices (LM, ILM, Combitube, Cobra-PLA, laryngeal tube, retrograde intubation on fiberscope).
  • To explore the respiratory tract by tracheal intubation using periglottic devices.
  • Correct fiberscope maintenance.
  • Mixed (e-learning and face-to-face)
  • Virtual simulation
  • Robotic simulation
Evaluation System
  • Practical exercise
  • Continuous evaluation
