The CAMAN course was developed in 2005 by five registered nurses from Nova Scotia, Canada who recognized the need for a nursing focused airway course. In 2011 we changed the name to CAMAN AIME for Nurses to reflect the partnership with AIME, where we deliver the nursing arm of the AIME Airway Management courses.
Why should nurses take an airway course?
Regardless of your role in airway management, it is our firm belief that nurses should understand all facets of managing an airway and optimizing ventilation.
Nurses working in a nursing station or a tertiary care hospital will be far more comfortable and effective as an emergency team member if familiar with the terms, assessments & techniques used.
Your exact role in airway management will be guided by your scope of practise , policies & procedures & knowledge level.
The RN will usually be the professional administering the medications so it is imperative that they know the pharmacology, indications, delivery & effects of all RSI medications thoroughly.
Essentially RN's fill many roles and some will require different levels of focused knowledge.
The CAMAN- AIME for Nurses course will prepare the RN for a variety of airway management roles, regardless of the type of hospital or nursing station you work in.
CAMAN is based in Nova Scotia, our instructors are available to teach anywhere across Canada upon request. We will work with you to make it a success.
In September 2011 we expanded to BC with Pacific Rim Nursing Education & Consultants, who are the only instructors outside Nova Scotia certified to teach the course in BC and Alberta.
