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. The alliance with the AIME course has allowed CAMAN to incorporate the AIME professionally produced videos and pictures giving the course a depth not possible before.
The goal is to ensure physicians, nurses and paramedics have one unified approach to airway management. Both courses use the same manual, the AIME Manual by Dr Adam Law and Dr George Kovacs.
Why should nurses take an airway course?
Regardless of your role in airway management, it is our firm belief that registered nurses should understand all facets of managing an airway and optimizing ventilation.
No matter where you work- rural, remote or tertairy care, you will be far more comfortable and effective as an emergency team member when familiar with the terms, assessments, techniques and drugs used in airway management.
Your exact role in airway management will be guided by your scope of practise , policies, procedures & knowledge level.
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. Get involved & get comfortable!
