This is a case of procedural sedation which goes a little awry. It is a nice counterpoint to all of the stuff we hear about safety, “fasting status” and the classic – “easy intubation, rocky extubation” scenario.
Please pop over to the ETM course page and read the blog – this is the sort of course you should do early in your development if you are a serious trauma doctor. [Disclaimer: I did write a small part of the course on rural trauma management and waffled about ultrasound a bit!]
