RSI in adult patient: what about ventilation | Alexandre Jeleff

A talk by Alexandre Jeleff from TBS23

Intro

A talk by Alexandre Jeleff at The Big Sick 2023 conference. Kindly shared with permission.
See the TBS23 landing page for the programme and full set of talks.

Synopsis

In acute medicine, most of the time, our patients are intubated with rapid sequence induction. A sequence during which the patient does not receive positive pressure.
Why is this? Because we fear massive regurgitation.
But are we asking the right questions? What is the risk of regurgitation versus severe hypoxia in this setting? And if we ventilate our patients, what would happen? How could we do it safely? What is the pathophysiology of tracheobronchial inhalation and how would its knowledge allow us to perfectly adapt our ventilation?
This presentation will try to bring you a new light, a perspective of the different risks and a way to deal with your big sick patients.

VIDEO

Until we have final edits ready the video below is straight from the livestream. Expect a few audio issues and other glitches here and there.
