Frenemy of the show, Reub Strayer recently posted on a technique he calls Ketamine Only Breathing Intubation (KOBI). This is similar to the technique we have called dissociated awake intubation here at EMCrit. Within Reub's post was a 9-minute video and an excellent, recent WJEM review article–both are well worth checking out.
This sparked a lot of back and forth between Reuben and George Kovacs. Then even more discussion between George and I. This sparked George to make a 40-minute video on his thoughts. It also prompted me to record Wednesday's episode on the technique of dissociated awake intubation. Now, watching George's vid will definitely give you some context on what you will hear from me on Wed. The 40-minute version has tons of background and additional amazing teaching, but if you don't have the time, I edited it down to 15 minutes just on KFI.
