How many of your patients can recall events during what you believed was a sedated endotracheal intubation? This study finds an appreciable number of patients who are paralyzed for intubation in the e
Tracheostomies are a common surgical procedure for long-term airway management that involves creating a permanent connection between the anterior neck and trachea. Complications occur in up to 50% of
Critical Care Alert: The PREPARE II trial investigated whether a fluid bolus would impact cardiovascular collapse in critically ill patients undergoing intubation.
Critical Care Alert: The triage of patients in the trauma bay is difficult, and no single measurement or vital sign will provide sufficient information for mortality. This study indicates ETCO2 - a co
Critical Care Alert: Femoral artery Doppler ultrasound is more accurate than manual palpation for pulse detection in cardiac arrest. Although it was a small study, it sheds light on resuscitation mana
A recent study aimed to develop and validate a modified Goto’s termination-of-resuscitation rule. The results can inform emergency department management of patients who suffered out-of-hospital cardia
Patients experiencing critical illness necessitating mechanical ventilation have high mortality rates. Additionally, survivors of critically ill mechanical ventilation experience high morbidity. Sever
The evidence surrounding ECPR continues to build. In this study, investigators demonstrated a 31.5% survival rate with favorable 180-day neurological outcome with ECPR in patients who suffered out-of-
Post-resuscitation shock occurs in 50-70% of patients after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, and this study provides evidence that norepinephrine is likely a preferable vasopressor to epinephrine in po
The emergent airway is central to emergency medicine. And a new study explores medications central to emergency endotracheal intubation. Which is better: etomidate or ketamine?
