Bougie assisted intubation via SGA with Dr Jim Du Canto
Jimmy D is back with a video on intubation via a supraglottic airway but with a novel twist!
SO what you say? Bougie assisted intubation via a LMA has been done before..sure thing. But what have we added or described further here …? See for yourself. Will this technique spell the death of RSI as we know it?
Incredible stuff, right? Whats so novel about what you just saw?
1. Almost all the airway gear shown is commonly available in every ICU, ED , OT or prehospital EMS service
2. The use of a swivel endoscopic connector allows for continuous ventilation throughout the procedure
3. Adding a video laryngoscope or optical stylet is the most expensive part of the whole technique but allows you to use the device alone or combined in this hybrid technique of SGA and VL assisted bougie intubation
4. This technique allows a SGA device to be exchanged for an ETT, during CPR for example.
