Hey! I’m Terren Trott, MD @tsquaredmd. The idea for this site came from a year and a half long QI project that started while I was a resident. I had been collecting airway video reviewing the video in conference for resident education. Through much inspiration by Jacob Avila, MD @ultrasoundmd and his site, 5minsono.com, I thought I could put all this video to good use and contribute to the FOAM movement. I am by no
means an airway expert which is why I’ve enjoyed this project so much. Identifying difficult airways, strategies and maneuvers in video makes the next time you find yourself in a tough situation that much easier. I hope some of the video and lessons on this site make your next difficult intubation a touch smoother.
