Cricoid pressure survey results are IN!
Thanks to all 208 participants of the online survey!
Mostly emergency physicians from Pacific but a significant proportion of anaesthetists too!
Overall it looks like a dead even tie but if you read the 24 open comments (which constitute the “OTHER” group in the final yes/no question on cricoid pressure) you will see that the YES to CRICOID PRESSURE group in fact takes the lead…mainly due to medico legal reasons.
MYTH = CRICOID PRESSURE IS DEAD
