Hi folks, finally on the podcast I interview Dr John Sakles, emergency physician in Arizona and excellent researcher in emergency airway management. He recently published 2 papers done from one study in his ER looking at introduction of nasal cannula oxygenation for emergency intubations, so called ApOx or apneic oxygenation during intubation attempts. I chat to him about his thoughts on his research into ApOx in emergency intubations and also discuss 2 other recent papers on preoxygenation and nasal oxygenation.

The show notes:

First Pass Success without Hypoxemia is Increased with the Use of Apneic Oxygenation During RSI in the Emergency Department

Apneic oxygenation is associated with a reduction in the incidence of hypoxemia during the RSI of patients with intracranial hemorrhage in the emergency department

Efficacy of Nasal Cannula Oxygen as a Preoxygenation Adjunct in Emergency Airway Management.

Assessment of Common Preoxygenation Strategies Outside of the Operating Room Environment

  1. In the fall of 2000, I was an intern in the UC ED, and my attending was John Sakles. In room B Circle 3, I saw a case of angioedema for the first time. I had no idea what was going on with the patient. I thought it was some sort of infection. John, thanks for being gentle with me that night when I gave you my differential diagnosis. And thanks for all your work in advancing emergency airway management!

      1. You guys are too kind. Thank you both for your efforts in advancing the safety of emergency airway management.- JCS
