PHARM Podcast 017 – Prehospital RSI and lessons from aviation by Ben Hoffman PART 1
Tune in and listen to a discussion of the evidence base for prehospital RSI and lessons from aviation
ON this episode, I talk to Ben Hoffman, who trained as a pilot and has been involved in the New Zealand ambulance service in the past. He is currently planning to start medical school next year and tutors health professionals on safety aspects coming from his aviation training. We go over the evidence base for prehospital RSI and start to discuss important lessons from aviation and how this can be applied to emergency airway management. Part two upcoming we go into more detail about the culture of safety in aviation and the principles of crew resource management. This all applies for high risk medical situations where the stakes are critical and no where does this matter more than in prehospital RSI.
