Steve, Dan, and Holly begin their fifth podcast with a case study on a motorcycle accident. Dan describes the logistics of the call and initial patient presentation. Mistakes made during rapid sequence intubation are discussed. The trio talks about the evolution of airway management procedures, such as the process of intubating patients and pre-oxygenation.
Dan discusses his checklist for successful rapid sequence intubation. Steve reviews his checklist, along with his triggers for backup airway placement and cricothyrotomy. Holly recaps a call where she decided against intubation and describes her thought process.
