This fantastic video was sent to me by my airway buddy, Darren Braude, MD.
The resident is Naomi Bancroft, MD.
This was a size 4 Ambu AuraGain with a 7.0 ET tube
Patient had suffered an OHCA secondary to a GIB. AuraGain placed by the Albuquerque Fire Department with ROSC obtained in the field. Patient had initial resuscitation including vent management, blood, octreotide, arterial line, femoral coolguard line and pressors performed with the AuraGain in place as patient was oxygenating and ventilating perfectly.
@ketaminh tipped us off to a 2nd video (published the same day) that demonstrates the technique in the OR from fibroanestesia
