Rapid sequence intubation (RSI) is the most common method of airway control in the emergency department (ED).(1,2) Administration of an anesthetic agent and a neuromuscular blocking agent (NMBA) optimizes conditions for tracheal intubation and is thought to minimize the risk of aspiration.(3-10) Evidence suggests that RSI improves first pass success and reduces complications in the critically ill.(11-14) This article is protected by copyright.

OBJECTIVE: To describe the practice and procedure of emergency intubation in Whanganui Emergency Department, New Zealand and determine whether intubation can be carried out effectively in the rural setting. METHOD: A prospective observational study using the Australia and New Zealand Airway Registry proforma to collect data on the indication, lead intubator, first-pass success rate and peri-procedural complications. Data were also collected on whether a formal airway assessment was carried out and whether a checklist was used...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Adverse events, including aspiration, occur during Emergency Department (ED) intubation, but their contemporary incidence is not well described. We sought to estimate the rate of aspiration pneumonia potentially related to emergency intubation. METHODS: We conducted a prospective observational study of adult patients who were endotracheally intubated in the ED. Using a standard definition, we determined the proportion of patients who developed aspiration pneumonia after intubation...

BACKGROUND: A critical safety component of emergency anesthesia is the avoidance of hypoxemia during the apneic phase of a rapid sequence intubation. Preoxygenation with a bag valve mask (BVM) or anesthetic circuit may be improved with supplemental oxygen by nasal cannula (NC) if there is a mask leak. In addition, NC is recommended for apneic oxygenation after induction and may be placed before preoxygenation. However, the optimum NC flow rate for preoxygenation or whether the presence of NC alone creates a mask leak remains unclear...

CONTEXT: Emergency Physicians (EPs) often need to make a decision whether or not to intubate a terminal cancer patient. OBJECTIVE: To explore EPs' attitudes about intubating critically ill, terminal cancer patients. METHODS: Fifty EPs at three emergency departments (one university-based, one community, and one HMO) in Southern California participated in an anonymous survey that presented a hypothetical case of an end-stage lung cancer patient in pending respiratory failure...

The recent systemic review and meta-analysis by Savino et al.(1) comparing performance of video versus direct laryngoscopy for prehospital intubation was of great interested to us. They conclude that among physician intubators with significant direct laryngoscopy (DL) experience, video laryngoscopy (VL) does not increase overall or first-pass success rate and may lead to worsening performance. However, among non-physician intubators with less experience with DL, VL may provide benefit in the prehospital setting...

We thank the authors for this letter and appreciate the opportunity to respond to the comments and clarify our position. We agree with the authors in a number of their specific comments, and will attempt to address each of them. The first comment refers to the difference in video laryngoscopy devices and how "… pooling of results from studies evaluating performance of different VLs for prehospital intubation may lead to intrinsic inconsistencies in the primary endpoints."

OBJECTIVE: Airway management is vitally important in the management of critically ill and injured patients. Current tools to predict the difficult airway have limited application in the emergency airway situation. The aim of this study was to derive a novel difficult airway prediction tool for emergency intubation. METHODS: A retrospective descriptive analysis was performed in a population of air medical rapid sequence intubation patients requiring more than 1 attempt...

BACKGROUND: 911 Emergency Medical Services (EMS) systems utilize supraglottic devices for either primary advanced airway management, or for airway rescue following failed attempts at direct laryngoscopy endotracheal intubation. There is, however, limited data on objective confirmation of supraglottic airway placement in the prehospital environment. Furthermore, the ability of EMS field providers to recognize a misplaced airway is unknown. METHODS: Retrospective review of patients who underwent airway management using the King LTS-D supraglottic airway in a large urban EMS system, between 3/1/15-9/30/2015...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: We conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the effectiveness of apneic oxygenation during emergency intubation. METHODS: We searched Ovid MEDLINE, Ovid EMBASE, Ovid CENTRAL, and Scopus databases for randomized controlled trials and observational studies from 2006 until July 2016, without language restrictions. Gray literature, clinicaltrials.gov, and reference lists of articles were hand searched. We conducted a meta-analysis with random-effects models to evaluate first-pass success rates, incidence of hypoxemia, and lowest peri-intubation SpO2 between apneic oxygenation and standard oxygenation cases...

BACKGROUND: At many academic institutions, anesthesiology residents are responsible for managing emergent intubations outside of the operating room (OOOR), with complications estimated to be as high as 39%. In order to create an OOOR training curriculum, we evaluated residents' familiarity with the content and correct adherence to the American Society of Anesthesiologists' Difficult Airway Algorithm (ASA DAA). METHODS: Residents completed a pre-simulation multiple-choice survey measuring their understanding and use of the DAA...

BACKGROUND: High-flow nasal cannula oxygen (HFNC) is a relatively new therapy used in adults with respiratory failure. Whether it is superior to conventional oxygen therapy (COT) or to noninvasive mechanical ventilation (NIV) remains unclear. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether HFNC was superior to either COT or NIV in adult acute respiratory failure patients. METHODS: A review of the literature was conducted from the electronic databases from inception up to 20 October 2016...

PURPOSE: Results of a study to determine whether checklist-based interventions improved the selection and administration of rapid-sequence intubation (RSI) medications in a pediatric emergency department (ED) are reported. METHODS: A retrospective study of data collected during a quality-improvement project was conducted. Data sources included the electronic health record and video review. The central intervention was use of a 21-item RSI checklist, which included guidance for the physician team leader on medication selection and timing...

BACKGROUND: Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) with bi-level positive airway pressure (BiPAP) is commonly used to treat patients admitted to hospital with acute hypercapnic respiratory failure (AHRF) secondary to an acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD). OBJECTIVES: To compare the efficacy of NIV applied in conjunction with usual care versus usual care involving no mechanical ventilation alone in adults with AHRF due to AECOPD. The aim of this review is to update the evidence base with the goals of supporting clinical practice and providing recommendations for future evaluation and research...

BACKGROUND: The effective treatment of airway compromise in trauma and non-trauma patients is important. Hypoxia and hypotension are predictors of negative patient outcomes and increased mortality, and may be important quality indicators of care provided by emergency medical services. Excluding cardiac arrests, critical trauma and non-trauma patients remain the two major groups to which helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) are dispatched. Several studies describe the impact of pre-hospital hypoxia or hypotension on trauma patients, but few studies compare this in trauma and non-trauma patients...

BACKGROUND: Hypoxemia increases the risk of intubation markedly. Such concerns are multiplied in the emergency department (ED) and during retrieval where patients may be unstable, preparation or preoxygenation time limited and the environment uncontrolled. Apneic oxygenation is a promising means of preventing hypoxemia in this setting. AIM: To test the hypothesis that apnoeic oxygenation reduces the incidence of hypoxemia during endotracheal intubation in the ED and during retrieval...
