Try this for your “Happy Hypoxemics” if resource strapped...Proning at triage...EMS brought this guy in...SpO2 72% tachy 140s...was on 4 L NC...we asked patient to turn over...now 90-91%, tachycardia resolved. Can help buy time and decrease provider tensions over hypoxia.

I'm in the same boat. I just shaved my 6 inch beard after encountering an NYC patient with agitated delirium who was later found to be febrile and ultimately required intubation. We have to protect both ourselves and the patients (most important) we treat.

As a NYC H+H Emergency Medicine doctor, I want to say that inspired me by saying that NYC H+H doctors are "here to serve," "proud of offering free care," and want insurance companies to pay when our patients cannot.

I'm looking forward to seeing that the current PrePARE II results confirm the PrePARE study finding that IV fluid bolus helps prevent adverse outcomes when BMV is applied during ED or ICU RSI.

The SpO2-only approach to ED intubation relies on a "guesstimate" of how well your patient is preoxygenated using the length of preox time and an assumption of the FiO2. The end tidal O2 (EtO2) approach gives you better preox data. via

-A pulse oximetry-only approach to ED intubation relies on a "guesstimate" of how well your patient is preoxygenated using the length of preox time and an assumption of the FiO2. -A gas analyzer gives you the SpO2 plus real-time measurement of the end tidal O2 (EtO2) and FiO2.
