“This was an absolutely excellent course for the novice and veteran clinician alike! Even as a SLP with over 20 years of direct patient care experience with dysphagia evaluation and treatment in an acute care hospital ICU setting I learned valuable information with immediate application to my work in each section. All of the material presented was current, relevant and scientifically supported. Many thanks to Eric and MedSLP Ed for one of the best CEU courses I have taken in years!" - AnneMarie Schoenwetter
The Airway: The View from the SLP Perspective
MedSLP Education is excited to host Dr. Blicker during this eight-hour interactive case-based learning course designed to teach foundational knowledge about the airway related to the speech-language pathologist. Dr. Blicker shares his extensive knowledge of anatomy through the lens of trans-nasal endoscopy. After completing this course, participants will be able to accurately identify relevant anatomy in the nasal cavity, pharynx, and larynx, as well as identify common anatomical variants in this region through the use of transnasal endoscopy. This course will also include the following topics to enhance the learning experience: intubation trauma, reflux, head and neck cancer, and tracheostomy, including speech-language pathologist's role.
- Learners will describe relevant anatomy in the nasal cavity, pharynx, and larynx.
- Learners will identify common anatomical variants in the nasal cavity, pharynx, and larynx.
- Learners will identify structural anomalies that may be viewed during trans-nasal endoscopy.
