PHARM Podcast 50 :Do you need to see at all? -the art of blind intubation

blind intubation via ILMA

Hi folks. The title track for this episode is by a legendary Australian rock band of the 80′s, Hunters and Collectors with their song ” Do you see what I see”

A listener emailed a comment about the Fastrach intubating LMA so I thought I would make this episode as a podcast.

Before the advent of videolaryngoscopy, blind intubation techniques have been developed and practised for years. The question I was posed was should the occasional intubator forgoe direct laryngoscopy and just learn and practice blind intubation techniques. Is there a role for blind techniques in the era of growing VL dominance? Will VL take over all intubation techniques ? ARE WE VISUALLY BIASED IN AIRWAY MANAGEMENT?

Show Note references:
