Additional info for Cases in Emergency Airway Management

Example text

The case is intentionally vague because this event could be any patient, in any location, at any time, for any indication. Whenever the need for airway management is not elective, you will be operating at a deficit of information. Airway management is not about placing an endotracheal tube on request. Airway management begins by evaluating the patient in order to decide whether or not intubation is appropriate – be a clinician, not a technician. Consider a patient who is experiencing increasing respiratory distress because of volume overload, which should be treated with diuresis rather than intubation and all of its ramifications.

Other helpful adjuncts include malleable stylettes and Eschmann stylettes, or bougies. It should also contain equipment for assisting in ventilation should initial attempts at intubation fail, such as nasal trumpets, oral airways, supraglottic airways (SGAs) such as laryngeal mask airways (LMAs), and needle cricothyrotomy supplies. At the beginning of a call shift, test all of the equipment used for EAM and make sure laryngoscopes are functional. Check to make sure that all adjunct supplies are present and in usable condition.

You are no good to the patient if you are wheezing and have a sprained ankle from running up 10 flights of stairs. The location of the event matters. ICUs and EDs are better equipped to handle emergencies. Emergent intubations are common and providers in these locations are frequently trained in airway management. It is reasonable for any area that typically deals with acute care patients to be prepared with immediately accessible airway supplies in an EAM toolkit similar in contents to the portable bag carried by the code team.
