Podcast 86 - Should I Swap & Intubate?

Screen-Shot-2019-11-22-at-4.28.02-PM

You jump in the back of an ambulance and see the crew you intercepted with is currently ventilating the patient through a supraglottic airway (SGA). Your partner looks at you and says: "should we just swap and intubate?

What factors influence your decision to yank the SGA and perform endotracheal intubation? 

Here is a decision tree I made to help map out what I believe to be the best sequence of events to evaluate the risk/benefit of pulling an SGA. 

 

In this episode Sam & I have a quick discussion about supraglottic troubleshooting and then release a video from the FOAMfrat Paramedic Refresher. If you would like to present this flow chart to your medical director, please send me an email and I will send you one that does not include a meme of Goldmember.
