Airway Management

Airway Management

Dear colleagues,

I am pleased to introduce this e-publication, a compilation of CJRT articles that have addressed the issue of airway management / tracheostomy.

We invite respiratory therapists as well as our interprofessional colleagues to submit papers on this topic that can be added to this collection. Our profession relies on the development, distribution, and clinical utilization of scientific knowledge by our colleagues so that we can take ownership and build our specialized body of knowledge.
