In this lecture from ResusX: Reset (see link below for more lectures), Dr. Mohammed Hagahmed discusses the management of a 55-year-old patient with suspected pulmonary embolism (PE) presenting with hypotension and respiratory distress. He emphasizes the importance of optimizing resuscitation before considering intubation through a detailed case study. He highlights strategies such as addressing right ventricular failure, judicious fluid administration, and managing hypotension and hypoxia. Dr. Hagahmed underscores the need for careful ventilatory management post-intubation and advocates for a meticulous approach to ventilation settings to avoid exacerbating the patient’s condition. He stresses the high mortality associated with rushing intubation in such cases and encourages healthcare providers to prioritize the optimization of resuscitation efforts to improve patient outcomes.
