Prevent and Overcome Complications
The ASA Closed Claims Liability Study revealed that
85% of airway injuries resulted in death or brain
death. The cost of each averaged $400,000 with a
maximal cost of $5.4 million. SLAM seeks to
decrease personal and institutional liability by
teaching safe and effective airway management
principles and techniques. Attend SLAM and learn
how to prevent and overcome potentially deadly
airway complications.
