A review of basic airway management for non-anesthesia personnel is presented. Included is a literature review of 20 articles surrounding the most current literature on preoperative airway assessment, cricoid pressure, video laryngoscopy, adjuncts for airway management, and airway management education for non-anesthesia health-care personnel. Following the review, an in-service style education presentation was developed and implemented at two sites in Maine. A pre- and post-test evaluation of the participants demonstrated an overall increase in test scores of 22%.
