Dr Seth Trueger, you all should well know by now. EM doctor who trained in NYC under Scott and Reuben Strayer. Now in Washington DC.

What we talk about :

  1. ED vs ICU vs OR airway management

    Amen to this podcast.

    This will help me to help my intensivists (almost wrote intestinals).

    Another out of the box thing to ponder as I was listening to the podcast: if I didn’t have VL, or scopes, could a retrograde with a boogie through a functional SGA deliver the goods (following blind technique failure through the SGA)? It has worked for me in simulation with the Air-Q (Bonus being that you do not need to remove SGA during ETT advancement).

    If it doesn’t work,, you turn the bougie south and complete the cric.

    • Cool idea, saw this and can’t help but say that might work if time and sats are ok by LMA. I think issue with retrograde is that it takes time whereas scalpel-bougie-cric doesn’t take much time at all to get the tube in and ventilate/oxygenate. I haven’t tried retrograde with a wire in cadaver or real life but anyone that I have talked to who has said that it was nice in theory but it was finicky in practice. Bougie may make this work in practice.
