Pre-Hospital Airway Research in OOHCA – PART ONE

As I am sure you are aware there has been a number of key publications in the last year that are highly relevant to #AirwayNerds.


Should you wish to be having any evidence based Airway discussions you need to understand these International published studies beyond the well known headlines, our interest has often been not the primary study point but the data the study has collected into success and complication rates of different airway techniques and devices.


Many other sites (Obviously we recommend the Resus Room as James is an #AirwayNerd) has discussed these papers but we would like you to read and digest them all in your own time.


So we start in order of publication with the SAMU trial ran across France and Belgium that compared outcomes in OOHCA from Intubation by Doctors Vs BMV (Bag Mask Ventilation) by BVM by ambulance crews trained only in Essential skills. Enjoy!
