Managing the airway in a cardiac arrest brings its own set of challenges. Enter here for an overview of this important topic.
what’s the best airway strategy
Your patient is unresponsive, without a pulse, and agonal breathing. You’ve been asked to intubate the patient. What’s your next move?
a better way
EMS notification. Intubated, cardiac arrest. On arrival, you’re asked to confirm tube placement. What is the fastest and easiest way to do that? We show you here.
the right tool at THE right time
What’s the best way to deliver oxygen to your patient in cardiac arrest? The answer may surprise you.
Tools of the Trade
an important lifeline
Now that you know about the importance of supraglottic airway devices during cardiac arrest, spend a little time getting familiar with them.
ANOTHER critical tool
Waveform capnography is a great tool during CPR but has other airway-related applications. Learn how to use it effectively here.
Mechanical CPR & the airway
One way to minimize intubation time is using mechanical CPR with devices like the LUCAS. Learn why here.
how to do it right
Don’t stop the beat. Learn how to reduce pauses for intubation, improve your first pass success and maximize the chest compression fraction.
when things get messy
Things can get messy in there (and they almost always do) when chest compressions are ongoing. They almost guarantee gastric contents will end up contaminating the airway. Here’s how to handle that.
