Common Concerns with VORTEX

Concerns with Vortex from Simpact on Vimeo.

One Comment Post a comment
  1. Nice video, very well composed and presented.

    Glad for the extra discussion of concepts such as “don’t worry, I can wake patient”, the oxy-haemoglobin-o-coaster, pulse ox as time-machine, ApOx, ESA rates etc

    I have been fortunate enough to see the Vortex being taught on the ETMcourse and was very impressed with the rapid way in which this cognitive aid facilitated airway management during some gnarly sims, even amongst teams who hadn’t worked together and had only minimal training on Vortex. Contrast this with the DAS algorithms – although robust and well-thought out, they are relatively complex, seem to place emphasis on ‘awakening’ and are unlikely to be recalled in the stress of a failure to maintain airway espec in ED/ICU out-of-theatre airway Mx.

    Ultimately, it’s a checklist – and a cognitive tool. Useful in crisis, to be read aloud to aid the clinician managing the airway

    A ‘have you done?’ to facilitate expert skill rather than a ‘how to’ for novices.

    Useful when even airway experts are task saturated…
