You read that right! Dr. Jeff Jarvis is a medical director who only uses video laryngoscopy (VL) for the EMS agencies he acts as a medical director. Not only that, but in his own practice in emergency medicine, he uses a VL system.
What is so great with VL that they ditched traditional direct laryngoscopy? Well for that, you will need to listen to the show. However, there are some key points discussed that we wanted to include in our show notes for our readers.
Have you heard of Jim DuCanto? If not, then you missed our last podcast. You can listen to either of them in any order, but since you are here, go ahead and listen to this one first. However, we highly recommend that you go to Podcast #8 after that to see what our guest has been up to recently. If you manage airways take a listen as it has some interesting findings.
In this podcast, Jim DuCanto tells us more about himself and answers questions from Twitter. Click more to read some of the highlights and to listen to the podcast. Remember, we are now also on iTunes Podcasts for your listening pleasure.
You may not have heard of Jim DuCanto specifically, but you have probably heard about his SALAD (Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy Airway Decontamination) technique. Click on the links that we have here if you have not heard of him or his technique including this one from Life in the Fast Lane. Don't worry, we will wait right here...
Are you back now? Does it make sense? We will talk about it more soon. However, we had a very unique conversation about something you most likely have not heard of yet. On August 28, 2016 he completed an experiment regarding supraglottic airways. The next day we interviewed him with this podcast being all about the experiment. Click below for some of the key points from our talk.
After our talk with Minh Le Cong from the PHARM podcast, we decided it was appropriate to discuss the POKER Trial. No, it is not about cards, but rather about if propofol mixed with ketamine is better than propofol alone.
In addition to this podcast, there have been a few other blogs such as St. Emlyn's and REBEL EM that reviewed this study. At this time, we believe that this is the only podcast to create an audio discussion in detail on the subject (we may have missed someone and we apologize). For that reason, we wanted to make sure there was a way you could listen to a detailed analysis of this study soon as it is still a relatively recent publication.
