The Home Page for the Essential Emergency Airway Care Course (EEACC) at The Sharp End site contains links to each of the modules and those module links also contain the show notes and the references.
I only made this slide list so that I could quickly review EEACC #5 -Airway Pharmacology.(This is the direct link to this video on Vimeo –You need to watch the video more than once).
And be sure to watch all the videos and read all the references in Dr. Brainard’s References for this video (they really are a part of the course).
Dr. Brainard’s references below include a link to Dr. Weingart’s podcast on the dangers of hypotension in Rapid Sequence Intubation and advice on how to mitigate that danger. Dr. Weingart’s lecture and show notes are the most important information I have read on intubation and RSI.
I have also included two bonus references on the use of push dose epinephrine for hypotension: Pulse Dosing For Hypotension, 2012 YouTube Video by Dr. Larry Mellick and Pulse Dose Epi During Intubation, 2014 YouTube Video by Dr. Larry Mellick. You need to have a specially prepared syringe of the appropriate concentration of epinephrine (which is detailed in the videos and is not the standard cardiac epinephrine syringe in the crash cart.)

The Laryngoscope as a Murder Weapon – Hemodynamic Kills [On vimeo, the video is actually titled How to Intubate a Patient with Hypotension. Review also Dr. Weingart’s show notes for this Podcast 104 – Laryngoscope as a Murder Weapon (LAMW) Series – Hemodynamic Kills, August 5, 2013 by emcrit. The show notes contain much additional information.]
