Doc sits down with us as we look at a paper from The Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery
which discusses prehospital definitive airway not being associated with improved survival in
trauma patients.

We talk about how to best utilize your clinical skills and assessment along with BLS and basic
airway adjuncts as well as medical direction’s role and the effectiveness of appropriate training.
Great chat and as always, we appreciate Doc CricEm (Godfrey) for coming on to talk with us to

As always, thanks for listening and we hope this series provides just one more tool to help you better yourself and the patients we see daily.
