 Aims and background: Airway management is one of the key skills in managing and treating of critical patients. In hospital departments before reaching an anesthesiologist or experienced team, this task lies with the nurses who have not been trained enough in this field. This study was conducted to evaluate the ability of nurses before and after a manikin-based workshop for securing the airway with laryngeal mask insertion and tracheal intubation. Materials and Methods: In this semi-experimental study, 68 nurses working in a university hospital with record of service of 1 to 12 years were enrolled. First, nurses were evaluated in terms of familiarity with the correct method of oral airway insertion, mask ventilation, laryngeal mask insertion, and intubation with the tracheal tube, using an oral questionnaire. In the next step, their ability to perform the above items on the educational model was evaluated. After completing a total of 10 minutes of theoretical and practical training on a manikin for each nurse, the ability to perform the above tasks with a maximum of two attempts for each task was measured again. Findings: Most nurses said that they were familiar with airway insertion and mask ventilation, but only about 20% of them were able to correctly ventilate the manikin in the pre-test assessment. After a 10-minute training, more than 90% of the participants put the laryngeal mask successfully. The ability for endotracheal intubation was only 13%. conclusion: Adding laryngeal mask to resuscitation trolley and periodic short-term training of nurses might be an effective way to secure the patients’ airway in emergency situations.
