Internists, emergency medicine physicians, and intensivists routinely provide essential care for patients with complex airways (i.e. tracheostomy and laryngectomy) and patients with epistaxis. Any of these physicians may serve as first responder in a complex airway or epistaxis emergency situation. Therefore, a basic understanding of complex airway and epistaxis management is essential. The otolaryngology department aims to provide our colleagues with fundamental take-home points to improve crossdepartmental care of these patients.
