In other studies that primarily targeted rapid sequence intubations, Bair et al [12] showed that among 207 failed first course intubation, 18% and 14% intubations were by sedation only or use of no drugs respectively.
Single-dose etomidate for rapid sequence intubation may impact outcome after severe injury.
The safety of etomidate for emergency rapid sequence intubation of pediatric patients.
Rapid sequence intubation was the commonest type (n=185, 67%) of intubation and was performed mostly by anaesthetists (n=236, 85%).
The authors are to be congratulated for making the steps to successful pre-hospital rapid sequence intubation very clear, with highlight boxes and easy to remember mnemonic outlining how to assess the need for pre-hospital rapid sequence intubation, the risks, the preparation, the equipment, the procedure and the post-intubation care.
Rapid sequence intubation (RSI) minimizes the time between the loss of consciousness and tracheal intubation.
Stein C, Botha M, Kramer E, et al Position Statement: Pre-hospital Rapid Sequence Intubation.
In emergency situations, Rapid sequence intubation is often chosen over other intubation techniques because simultaneous onset of deep sedation and paralysis, followed by securing patient's airway smoothly and quickly minimizes the chances of regurgitation and aspiration of gastric contents.
Of the 124 patients, 37 (30%) were managed with basic airway management, 8 (7%) were intubated without drugs, 13 (11%) underwent rapid sequence intubation (RSI), 55 (44%) were managed with sedation-assisted intubation.
