One thought on “Optical stylet intubation via supraglottic airway by Dr Jim DuCanto”

  1. Hey Jim, great talk.
    I was surprised by your revelation that laryngospasm is a pretty common side effect of SGA’s. In fact I have witnessed this at least once on a very obese women when I was doing some airways in the OR but I just thought it was an anomaly. In any case it really sends us a strong message that whether we have put the LMA in after a failed RSI or primarily as a “rapid sequence airway” as I think Darren Braude has suggested, we should have a syringe full of Sux on the ready if we don’t put an ETT down soon after LMA insertion. Thanks for that BIG tip!
