Hi Folks! Many of you have requested these DSI protocols from Dr Rob Bryant , Emergency Physician in Salt Lake City, Utah. He has responded to your requests!Here are the files for download. Please use them as reference and educational material only and attribute the authorship if presenting material to others. Upcoming podcast interview with Dr Bryant on his experiences of implementing DSI in his shop and how the nurses he works with now call DSI – “Damn Sexy Intubation!”
DSI one page protocol
Delayed Sequence Intubation Formal Protocol
preoxygenation and prevention of hypoxia (Weingart and Levitan seminal paper on emergency oxygenation)
Sorry for the delay. Here are my DSI materials that should be enough to convince any reasonable Respiratory Therapy department / ED director to proceed with a DSI protocol.
1. DSI presentation powerpoint slides from the talk I gave to my group to sell DSI to them
2. One page DSI protocol that describes the process in easy steps
3. Formal protocol, with printable cards that can be laminated as DSI pocket references. (I am working on a ‘PV’ card for Michelle Lin’s PV card collection)
4. Weingart / Levitan article from March annals of EM.
Let me know what questions you have, and when (and how) you want to discuss this.
It is one of my favorite procedures as it truly takes a situation that was a guaranteed clusterf#$% and turns it into a smooth, safe, controlled experience.
Thanks for the excellent podcast and blog,
Rob Bryant MD
