Learning from Larry
Donations to the Employee Giving Campaign save lives, and to see that in action, look no further than Airway Larry.
Airway Larry is an adult airway mannequin trainer head that simulates a non-anesthetized patient for practicing intubation, ventilation, suction and CPR techniques. He features anatomy and landmarks, including teeth, tongue, larynx, epiglottis, false cords and more.
Avera eCARE requested and received funds for two airways heads and an airway kit from the Avera Foundation. eCARE used the new tools to expand the difficult airway course, a one-day comprehensive course on airway management for rural health care providers, advanced practice providers, emergency medical technicians and physicians.
