High-Flow apnoeic oxygenation

I know I keep harping on about this, but these techniques may save you from a catastophe if you’re intubating someone in the ED.

The guys over at Emergency Medicine Updates have done a sweet article on the concept of nasal oxygen during RSI, but have taken it up a notch by using high-flow nasal O2.

I’m a recent convert to high-flow nasal oxygen, if you’re not sure about whether you’ve got it at your institution, ask your ICU/HDU, as they usually stock it and can send it down to ED if you need it.
