Are you an Occasional Intubator?
If you are a reader of our comments sectio, you will know about Dr Minh Le Cong – RFDS Doc from Cairns who is one of the most enthusiastic teachers I have come across in the ether. If you want a sample of his pearls of wisdom – go to my post on Preoxygenation Pearls and check out the comments section.
One of his passions is teaching airway skills to GPs / occasional intubators. He also loves debunking medical mythology and dogma – and he has taken aim at the classical Rapid Sequence Intubation (RSI) and cricoid pressure.
So if you are an occasional intubator, or just would like to know what all the controversy is about – Minh has allowed us to put up his lecture on the topic.

Check it out – let me, and Minh know what you think. I am sure there are some Anaesthetists out there who have something to say? Casey
Fantastic talk. I wish I had this information when I went to work remotely. My intuabtion rate went from 1 a forthnight to 1 every year!
This is why I felt the need to go to every airway course I could and read about airway management.
The emergency airway is different to the “standard” anesthetic airway and is good that we are know starting to acknoweledge this.
