Many programs have begun incorporating Awesim models into their simulations to provide learners a more realistic experience.  These models, which can be placed directly onto high-fidelity mannequins, allow learners to progress to a percutaneous or surgical airway during a "can't intubate, can't ventilate" scenario.

Many programs have begun using Awesim models for teaching surgical procedures involving the neck and airway.  These models are a beautiful complement to live animal models because they are anatomically more similar to humans, and they do not require specialized instruments, facilities, personnel or ethics approval.
