Happy Wednesday of #EMSWeek2017! Definitive airway management in the prehospital sphere for critically ill patients is often forced upon EMS providers especially when encountering failure of traditional challenging airway algorithms.  Failure to ventilate and intubate a patient can results in immediate sphincter tightening for providers.  Being facile with a surgical airway based on one's specific kit and armamentarium is paramount for providers in whom the surgical airway falls within their scope of practice.  Adequate training and skills maintenance are perpetual challenges in this HALO (high acuity low occurrence) procedure.
