Show Notes

More than 1.5 million patients undergo endotracheal intubation each year in the U.S.  Endotracheal intubation can be complicated by hypoxemia, which is a known risk factor for peri-intubation cardiac arrest and death.  Rapid sequence intubation typically involves a delay of up to 2 minutes between the administration of sedative/paralytic medications and laryngoscopy.  In this podcast, we discuss a recent article in the New England Journal of Medicine that suggests critically ill patients may benefit from bag-mask ventilation during the period between medication administration and laryngoscopy.

Vitamin C for Septic Shock?

In 2017, Paul Marik published a single-center retrospective before-and-after study that demonstrated significant mortality benefit to patients with septic shock who received a cocktail of steroids, vitamin C, and hydrocortisone.  Since that time, many providers have adopted this cocktail for the treatment of septic shock, despite the fact that no randomized trial has evaluated this regimen.  In this podcast, we welcome EM/CCM superstar Dr. Gabriel Wardi to review the VITAMINS trial, a randomized clinical trial evaluating this cocktail among patients with septic shock.
