The Vortex Approach is another game changer in airway management. This podcast features Dr. Nicholas Chrimes reviewing this technique to manage the airway. He also ties in some Star Trek in there (listen to the podcast to know who his favorite character is).
If you have worked in emergency medicine for any length of time, you have seen an abscess. No, it's not a spider bite, it's almost always an abscess. With abscess management, there are a number of approaches. We are going to review a relatively evidence based approach to treating these pus filled pockets of joy. Grab your eye protection and masks as this can get messy.
This is not your usual podcast. To be fair, what has been the usual podcast with us? We have gone over certain papers and a few interviews, but this is a young podcast. It was important to give everyone an update on what is currently going on, and that is exactly what this podcast is all about.
We are back for the second half of our conversation with Jeff Jarvis. If you missed the first half, go back and listen to Podcast #10 as it will make more sense. We discussed his EMS system that only uses video laryngoscopy (VL) with intubation. This is huge and unique with this group. However, it was a process to find what was best for him and where he acts as a medical director.
In this part of the conversation, we talk about the benefits of VL and how he chose the King Vision. He also reviews some of the protocols in place for their management of intubations in some unique settings including getting the tall device into the mouth during certain situations such as during cardiac arrest and patients with a soiled airway.
