Prehospital RSI in the UK

Originally posted on AmboFOAM:

I’m currently away in Japan getting some skiing in, so I’m not up to much I terms of posting.

However, whilst waiting for my wife to return from a shopping rampage in Tokyo, I did catch this post over at the brilliant ScanCrit site about HEMS use of RSI in East Anglia.

It adds to the belief that I have long held: prehospital intubation is not bad if it is done well; it’s prehospital intubation done poorly that is bad.

While you are over at ScanCrit, check out the rest of the site, these guys (and gals?) post some excellent stuff.

PODCAST #20 – Dr Helgi Johannsson – Wrongfooted by Checklists

Originally posted on Rural Doctors Net:

It was a pleasure to catch up with Icelander-turned Londoner Dr Helgi Johannsson regarding the ‘Wrongfooted‘ case.

Helgi is a prolific blogger – using Social Media to disseminate both useful nuggets of clinical information under the #TGDed hashtag (trauma gas education) and also occasional trash tweets on the weekend. Follow him at @TraumaGasDoc.

I was intrigued by the ‘Wrongfooted‘ case posted by Helgi – a classic case of the WHO checklist not being used properly. Several important lessons from this case, not least the need to use checklists appropriately … and the power of Social Media to disseminate important safety messages. Contrast this with the failure to disseminate safety lessons from a nearly identical case, as articulated subsequently by medical director Dr Dermot O’Riordan – the frustration being that the lessons learned from Dermot’s case weren’t made available to a wider audience.
