Medics practice airways skills

Medics practice airway skills at hands-on lab

EMS crews from Brazoria, Galveston and Harris counties took part in the lab in January at the Health Education Center on the UTMB Health Galveston Campus.

The lab was part of the EMS Lecture Series that is offered by UMTB Health. At this event, trauma faculty lectured on airways and Emergency Department faculty lectured on resuscitation. After the lectures, participants worked on airway skills with guidance from Anesthesiology faculty as well as some of the other professors.

Medics who attended the lectures and this skills lab earned four continuing education units.
