Show Notes

Etomidate and ketamine are frequently used for RSI in critically ill patients.  Recent articles have raised concern about an increased incidence of post-intubation hypotension in patients who receive ketamine for RSI.  Notwithstanding, is either agent superior for RSI in the critically ill?  In this podcast we discuss the recently published EvK trial, which evaluated etomidate and ketamine for RSI in emergency endotracheal intubations.
