Why the VideoLarygoscopy don’t gonna kill the DirectLaryngoscopy (at least in the near future)

Originally posted on MEDEST:

A novel publication goes to enrich the long-living debate on direct laryngoscopy (DL) vs video laryngoscopy (VL) efficacy in emergency intubation.

The recent article, pubblished on JEMS and titled  “Deploying the Video Laryngoscope into a Ground EMS System” ,compares the success rate beetwen DL vs VL in a ground EMS Service. The device used was the King Vision with channeled blade. The partecipants had a prior training on the divide, consisting in didactic orientation and practical skills on manikins.

The result of the study shown that “Within the first 100 days of the study, the video laryngoscope utilizing the channeled blade has shown to be at least as effective as DL in relation to first-attempt success” and considering that “the mean experience in our group with DL is nine years, yet the success rate remains unacceptable” “It’s time to consider transition from a skill that’s difficult to obtain and maintain…

Hymn to Simulation Team Training/ Inno alla Simulazione

Originally posted on MEDEST:

Blessed the emergency systems who train their professionals with simulation

Blessed the emergency professionals who challenge themselfs day by day in simulation

Facing their fears to win their weakness

Improving the quality of their work for the good of all patients

They are the future of emergency medicine

Shame on emergency systems who don’t train with simulation

Shame on emergency professionals who don’t have the umility to challenge themselfs

Running from their fears and weakness

Compromising the quality of their work and the health of the patients

They will disappear from emergency medicine panorama

Beati i sistemi d’emergenza che allenano i loro professionisiti con la simulazione.
Beati i professionisti che giorno per giorno si mettono in gioco allenandosi con la simulazione,
Affrontando le loro paure per vincere le proprie debolezze
Migliorando la qualità del proprio lavoro per il bene dei pazienti
Di loro sarà il futuro dell’emergenza sanitaria
Poveri i…
