VL tecnique in suspect intracranial bleeding

MEDEST

62 yrs old male found unconscious GCS 6 (E1,V1, P4). Sign of vomiting and inhalation. Profoundly hypoxic, hypertensive (BP 200 over 110). Pupils were miotic with anisocoria dx>sx.

The team, after aspiration of gastric material from the airway, decided for airway control, before transport. The patient is overweight with a “taurine” neck so VL was chosen as first choice for airway management.

RSI (Fentanyl. Midazolam, Sux) performed. In the video you can see a detailed explanation of the VL technique that is slightly different from DL technique.

 Post-intubation management included ventilation optimization (EtCO2 35-38 mmHg in suspected intracranial hypertension) oxygenation and haemodynamic management.
