Points that came out of the show

  • Mortality is higher in the ED and ICU compared to the operating room. Our patients are sicker, so we must be more diligent in planning
  • Quantitative wave-form ETCO2 should be the standard of care for EVERY ED and ICU intubation
  • Needle cricothyrotomy seems to fail more often than surgical cricothyrotomy
  • Awake intubation was not used when it was indicated
  • Junior resident anesthesiologists were often responding to the ED and ICU
  • There was a failure to plan for failure
  • Obesity figured into a large percentage of the airway disasters
