CHICAGO — A free smartphone app will now allow you to test your airway procedure skills —no medical supplies needed.

Anesthesiology News reported that Airway EX, launched October 2016 from Level EX Inc., is an interactive and virtual patient airway simulator of rare and difficult cases. The app is available on any iOS or Android smartphone or tablet.

The app was developed by a team of game and simulation experts. Numerous virtual cases also provide continuing medical education credit for users who get a high score.

According to the company, the 3-D simulation includes bleeding, swelling, saliva and secretions on your scope. The app also mimics the patient's vital signs and the user can trigger a laryngospasm-related cough.
