Course Description:
Successfully managing a patient's airway for optimal breathing is a crucial function provided by physical therapists, presenting it's own unique set of challenges and management techniques. This course will help you to maximize patient outcomes in airway clearance for your patients.  By providing an overview of the neuromotor, integumentary, cardiopulmonary and musculoskeletal pathologies that inhibit airway clearance, you will be able to better understand the importance of both intervention and prevention in airway management.  Tools used for airway examination will also be covered, along with those tools and assistive devices available in the marketplace to assist with airway maintenance and intervention.  An overview of key manual techniques that can be used by therapists, patients, and patient's families in clearing airway obstruction will complete this course offering.
