Love the website Scott. Just one suggestion:
Good stuff – but I reckon ET tube exchange ismbetter asamteam sport – two pairs of hands better than one, surely?
For sure it’s a team sport. Very clear instructions are required when the assistant is otherwise untrained in airway management procedures.
thanks guys for the videos.
Jim, what are you doing with a hand accordion at the SAM meeting?
That is a vintage Kreiselmann Resuscitator, a WW2 era ventilation device (you should google it). I got it off of eBay in a US Army box, and the thing is really awesome and fun to use (in simulation). The device has a pop-off at 20 cm H2O per my measuring devices. Scott got a real kick out of seeing it, so he snapped my picture with it. The sensitivity to proper flow rates is much easier than with a bag-resuscitator, but it is more complicated in construction than a bag-valve. The Veterinary industry still uses resuscitators made in this design… Read more »
Jim, thats cool!

The unusual shape of this stylet is important when working through SGA’s–I am pretty sure we have detailed this shape before on EMCRIT or on Minh’s blog PHARM? The shape itself is the brainchild of Dan Cook, inventor of the Air-Q.
Had the pocket bougie rep meet with us Fieldtrainers for EMS and went through a presentation / demo . The one handed variation is applicable for some of the sole EMS responders ( Tactical, Field Trainer and Hazmat ) medics that respond here in Calgary.
Once shown the “trigger” hand technique the Bougie became very user friendly. Cool adjunct to our “Occasional Intubator” world.
