CP poll 2014

 

Composite result of Yes and Sometimes = 41%!

Clearly at least amongst those who voted, there is division as to the role of cricoid pressure in RSI. Some think its standard, many do not.

 

Take home message : read the literature, understand the research and evidence. Be aware of what is considered standard and good practice in general amongst your peers and teachers. Make a decision for the patient before you , taking all this into account. Be true to that and we can figure out the rest later.
