Perform challenging airway procedures, sharpen your intubation skills, and earn CME with Airway Ex, the first professional video game for practicing Anesthesiologists, CRNAs, and medical professionals who perform airway procedures. Airway Ex is a free app for iPhone and iPad.

In Airway Ex, you can:
- Explore realistic airway procedures recreated from real cases submitted by doctors
- Train on the latest endoscopic devices with realistic range of motion, lens optics, and scope behaviors
- Earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits when you play through cases
- Get scored on skill, speed, damage, bleeding, navigation, recall, and more
- Treat patients that are responsive with changes in tissue behavior, breathing, bleeding, and fluids/secretions
- Monitor responsive Sp02 and HR vital signs based on stability or distress caused to virtual patient

Our app provides unprecedented medical realism, enabled by the accurate simulation of human tissue dynamics, realistic scope optics, and moving fluids to recreate life-like airway procedures. We also provide a new modality for earning continuing medical education (CME) credits for completing airway procedures in-app.

Virtual patient cases are modeled from actual surgical procedures submitted by doctors. Each case is vetted by medical experts with clinical simulation training experience from top hospitals. Airway Ex lets you train using ultra-realistic patient scenarios with high-quality, immersive simulations.

Extremely helpful!

This app is amazing! It actually helped me to intubate a little boy at Walmart when he needed to be bagged(long story). It’s great and it taught me how to intubate and went on to help me save a little boys life. Now maybe we could add some more challenging patients? Make it feel more realistic? Hear the patient breathing or stuff like that? I know it’s not going to look 100% realistic but less of a cartoony feel would be perfect! Maybe I’m just picky but the app is just amazing!

So realistic, but it’s not video?!

Intubation cases all look so real. Once I’m inside the airway, anatomy is incredibly detailed and responds to everything I do. Cases are interesting. Could be more challenging, but easy to get hooked and run through everything in one sitting.

We’re glad you enjoyed the experience! We are continuing to expand the cases in Airway Ex so stay tuned for even more challenges! - Rosie

Very useful app


Downloaded this not long ago, find it very useful past the tutorial. If you’re on iOS11 try the AR case; interesting use of Apple’s tech.
