Welcome Journal of Emergency Medicine Readers
I wrote an article called Preoxygenation, Reoxygenation, and Delayed Sequence Intubation in the Emergency Department (J Emerg Med. 2011;40(6):661).
Two anaesthetists, Drs. Gill and Edmondson wrote a letter of response to this manuscript. (http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jemermed.2012.01.071)
Rather than writing a snarky response, instead I got Dr. Gill on the line and had an actual conversation about the points raised in their letter. You can play this conversation below. Only at that point, when I actually knew what he was asking and we had hashed out some consensus did I respond in print. (http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jemermed.2012.11.083)
Further discussion, articles, and videos on preoxygenation and reoxygenation issues can be found on the EMCrit Preox Page.
