Airway management is the care to maintain sufficient ventilation and an unobstructed airway. Airway management is lifesaving for neonatal, baby, children, adults, and elders, and the care of airway is from very beginning when the prehospital emergency personnel contact with an unconscious sufferer to medical professionals handling critically ill and injured patients to secure free airway in the emergency room, critical units, and operating theater.

Prompt airway approach facilitates airway management, decreases complications related to the procedures of an artificial airway establishment, and helps to give proper patient preparation and technique for anticipating or un-anticipating difficult airway in a variety of clinical scenarios. In addition, after secure a free airway, caring of the established airway increases the quality of care.
