This is the very first episode of the Emergency Trauma Management Podcast, created for those who manage trauma in the Emergency Department. In our first episode we are very lucky to have had the chance to interview airway guru and all around nice guy, Minh Le Cong. Minh runs the fantastic Prehospital and Retrieval Medicine (PHARM) blog and podcast, and has a wealth of experience in trauma airway management. He also helps run the RFDS Prehospital Anaesthesia & Airway Management Course. In this episode, we talk about intubation in the head-injured patient, Minh’s favourite drug, Ketamine, dealing with cervical spine immobilisation and airway management, and some really great tips on managing the airway in patients with actual spinal injury.
Stay tuned for part 2, with more great airway pearls from Minh. If you enjoy the podcast, leave us a comment below (by clicking on “Comments”).
