The BOUGIE Trial

More than 1.5 million patients are intubated each year in the United States.  In up to 20% of patients, the first attempt at intubation is not successful and places patients at risk for peri-intubation cardiovascular collapse and death.  In recent years, many providers have used the bougie as either a rescue device for failed attempts or during the initial attempt at intubation.  In this podcast, we discuss the BOUGIE Trial, a recently published study that compared the effect of using a bougie to endotracheal tube with stylet on outcomes in patients undergoing tracheal intubation.ReplyReply allForward Download Companion HandoutDownload You can get CME credit for this episode hereClick here for CME Account Creation Instructions ...
