Details

Endotracheal intubation provides airway control and improves patient safety. However, small exotic mammals – especially rabbits and rodents – can seem nearly impossible to intubate. Participants will be introduced to the obstacles to small mammal intubation and learn how to overcome them. Didactic lecture will be followed by an on-screen demonstration of the anatomy of the rabbit glottis. This demonstration will cover six methods of endotracheal intubation, and then participants will practice these methods on rabbit cadavers and a variety of other small exotic mammal cadavers.
