Don’t just pre-oxygenate: have an Oxygenation Strategy |

A key component in the planning of intubation is pre-oxygenation. Recently apnoeic oxygenation during laryngoscopy has been adopted too. These are just two components of an overall oxygenation strategy to consider when intubating the critically ill. Some patients will require proactive preparation of the components of successful post-intubation oxygenation, especially those with severe lung pathology like ARDS.

Difficult airways can’t be reliably predicted |

This paper1 proves what Rich Levitan has been saying (and writing) for years – that there is no method of prediction of difficult intubation that is both highly sensitive (the test wouldn’t miss many difficult airways) and highly specific (meaning those predicted to be difficult would indeed turn out to be difficult). Most importantly, this means one should always have a plan for failure to intubate and failure to mask-ventilate regardless of how ‘easy’ the airway may appear.

You have just intubated a 65 year old woman with sudden respiratory failure. On arrival, she had a pulse but cool extremities. She was obtunded and agonal with SpO2 was in the high 70’s. After pre-oxygenating with BVM to 100%, the intubation went smoothly. You had a clear view of the cords and passed a cuffed 8-0 through easily with qualitative capnography and bilateral breath sounds. Now, post-intubation, her SpO2 is 86% and steadily dropping.

blow-by-oxygen

You’re rotating in the RICU and while there one of your patients develops respiratory distress requiring intubation. As you are preparing your equipment you notice that the intern on the team, who is trying to be helpful, is holding the BVM above the patients face to provide, “blow by oxygen.” Why is this not a beneficial preoxygenation strategy?
