Yesterday, I described a technique for providing a secure yet short-term airway tailored to patients who can’t have a tube in their mouth or nose. Patients undergoing multiple facial fracture repair are probably the best candidates for this procedure.
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a video is even better. Please note that it is explicit and shows the blow by blow surgical procedure. Of note, it is a quick and relatively simple advanced airway technique.
Here’s an entertaining but insightful peek into the issues surrounding good vs bad science. It’s pitched to the lay public, but brings up a lot of the issues about the pressures of publishing, vagaries of study design, and why things get reported the way they do. Well worth the time (and laughs) to watch!
This video reviews the proper treatment of agitation that you may encounter in trauma patients. It features JJ Rasimas MD, a psychiatrist at Regions Hospital. He is interviewed by our illustrious Jessie Nelson MD. This video was first broadcast at Trauma Education: The Next Generation.
