1. FOI Can be a Great Rescue Device

When Used With the Right Adjuncts

In a failed intubation, or in situations like a cardiac arrest where a supraglottic airway device (SAD) is used, fiberoptic can be a great tool to assist in the placement of a definitive airway without putting your patient at risk. If you’re delivering adequate oxygen with that SAD, why put yourself in jeopardy by removing it. Instead, the use of a fiberoptic device, along with an exchange catheter such as the Aintree used here for demonstration, can allow for safe tracheal access while providing continuous oxygenation. Let’s take a look.
