Show Notes

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

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.
