Should You RSI?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


RSI is our go-to method of intubation in the ED and ICU. However, not all patients are appropriate candidates for RSI. For some patients, maintaining spontaneous respirations until the tube is in between the cords is far safer. Developing a comfort level with awake intubation is a helpful tool in a practitioner’s airway arsenal.
