Michael Perlmutter (@DitchDoc14) did a blog piece a few months ago suggesting we re-think how we control airways in pre-hospital medicine. Whenever you discuss or propose putting a skill on trial, you will be met with resistance. That being said, yesterday two papers were published comparing the SGA vs ETT in cardiac arrest (PART & AIRWAYS2). I highly anticipate deep scrutinization of the paper by the pre-hospital community. My hope was that by bringing the senior authors on the podcast, I could help the discerned reader avoid assuming false motives and extended assumptions as to the fatality of paramedic intubation.
