Intubation via a Supraglottic Airway without any paralytic

Jim DuCanto demonstrates how he intubates via the AirQ SGA using the AirVu optical stylet. This is done using gaseous and local anaesthesia alone WITHOUT RECOURSE TO PARALYTICS OR IV INDUCTION AGENTS

  1. I shared this to answer Tim Leeuwenburg’s question/assertion re: the Air-Q.

    I have successfully used this technique with propofol infusion and 100% FIO2 ventilation (in lieu of the inhalation anesthesia technique), so this is workable. The addition of ketamine to the propofol makes it even easier, but you still need topical local anesthetic. Administering the local anesthetic through the mask itself is very effective.
