Show Notes

More than 1.5 million patients are intubated each year in the United States.  In up to 20% of patients, the first attempt at intubation is not successful and places patients at risk for peri-intubation cardiovascular collapse and death.  In recent years, many providers have used the bougie as either a rescue device for failed attempts or during the initial attempt at intubation.  In this podcast, we discuss the BOUGIE Trial, a recently published study that compared the effect of using a bougie to endotracheal tube with stylet on outcomes in patients undergoing tracheal intubation.ReplyReply allForward
