3 thoughts on “Making endotracheal intubation easy and successful, particularly in unexpected difficult airway”
Was reading through it, and I’m wondering how it differs from the “Kiwi Grip” and the “rings right” rotation with the Bougie. Perhaps textual descriptions don’t do their technique justice?
I also fail to see what’s new with this…. Maybe I didn’t understand the article correctly, but isn’t this just intubation with a bougie with the tube preloaded? Or is the rotation part applied before the bougie is in the trachea?
yes as far as I can tell, its a preloaded bougie with the rotation to pass tube past the arytenoids
