This is a "classic" masterpiece for those needing to grasp the fundamentals of airway management. Both the novice and the experienced physician will gain from reading this book edited by Ron Walls, MD, Chief of Emergency Medicine at Harvard. Dr. Walls and his co-authors have been the leaders of teaching this subject matter for the last few years. This book is a distillation of their teaching this subject.

Unlike many other sources, this book is right to the point and keeps it's explanations clinically relevant. I'd classify this book as being "gold" and one for my library.

Format: Paperback
There are many good airway management books. However, Manual of Emergency Airway Management is, without a doubt, one of the finest texts written on airway management. Of particular note is the extended discussion on the use of the bag valve mask. Many texts, including textbooks, gloss over the techniques of BMV as if it was too pedestrian. Walls has not.

Everything is well-researched and based not on opinion, but objectively supported by significant research with gobs of footnotes. The first chapter alone, discussing the decision to intubate, is worth the price of the book itself.

While geared mostly to emergency physicians, there is significant value for the pre-hospital provider. Walls has not done any favors for the pre-hospital community by designating a single, and rather brief, chapter on pre-hospital airway management. Despite this, well over half of the chapters pertain directly to improving airway management skills for providers of all levels, from first responder to ED physician.

While and excellent text overall, the paltry sections specific to the pre-hospital provider need improvement.

It is my personal opinion that anyone involved with care of emergency medical patients (from EMT to MD) should own this book. The book is more comprehensive than a slaam class (at around 50 dollars is much less expensive), and covers everything from the decision to intubate to considerations for special populations

As a working ground and flight paramedic this book does an excellent job at detailing information that many times was not covered in school. If you are planning on taking the FP-C or CC-P exam this book is a great review and follows their current standards. Very recommended.

Clear, concise and written in a manner that all healthcare professionals can understand. I recommend it to all who have not taken the course but want to get its lessons. ABSOLUTELY indispensable for all paramedics, ER docs, respiratory therapists, flight respiratory therapists and flight nurses. Sleep with it under your pillow.

Format: Paperback
This book was required reading for my Airway Management course (Part of a Respiratory Therapy Diploma Program) and did my teacher ever love to make up test questions right from the book.

It worked to my favor that this book is an easy read! The book walked me through airway anatomy (a good review for everyone), difficult airways, airway pharm (a good review for pharmacology), peds airways (which is good because it is often skimmed over in a general course), prehospital airway care, and even touches on ventilation. At times the fact that this book covers so many different topics makes it seem a bit broad. Does it really need to cover mechanical ventilation? Everyone knows that in an emergency you can get by with BVM until the bagger runs out of steam.

That being said, I really appreciated the detail it went into in some chapters. As a student with little clinical experience pictures (lots of pictures) of the various devices and shots of the airway is unbelievably helpful. In addition, there are many photos of cadavers which albeit a bit creepy, is a great anatomical introduction to surgical airways.

I consider this one of the most useful books in my collection and definitely the only one I have read cover to cover. I have doubly recommended it to all my classmates who are textbook adverse.
