I only made this slide list so that I could quickly review EEACC #7 – The Simple Surgical Airway.(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). Click here to go to the clickable references.
And here is one more invaluable resource on cricothyrotomy: EMCrit Podcast 131 – Cricothyrotomy – Cut to Air: Surgical Airway from SMACC Gold. This link is to the show notes and contains videos and other resources. And most especially, it contains Dr. Weingart’s video on the ten ways we fail with cricothyrotomy.
