VHA Difficult Airway (DAARC)
US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)
DAARC emphasizes the use of the percutaneous cricothyrotomy technique during failed airway scenarios in virtual operating rooms, emergency rooms, intensive care units, and in any location physicians practice Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). DAARC as an educational program is a novel composite of a Virtual Avatar Game-based Learning System with Simulation Mannequin-based Task Trainer activities designed to help reduce patient morbidity and mortality associated with difficult and lost airways.
