Challenge 8: Airway Safety

Failed airway management is as high as 1 in 50-100 in ED and ICU settings and can be even higher prior to arrival at the hospital. Although the goals are airway safety are uniform, applied practice is often fragmented and lacks standardization across the continuum of care, including pre-hospital arrival. Our APSS Blueprints provide healthcare organizations with practical, evidence-based checklists and protocols to establish an airway safety standard across hospital settings.
