We commonly hear the phrase "resuscitate before you intubate." My question is - how do you know when your patient is resuscitated enough to follow through with intubation?
Last weekend I gave a talk at EMSWorld called "The Sound of Silence." At the end of the talk Sam and I had a discussion on how do you know when a patient is resuscitated enough to allow intubation. In true Tyler fashion, I misread how long my talk was suppose to be and had to cut out the ending. This is the discussion portion of that talk and I think you will especially enjoy the ending.
