Take My Breath Away: Patient-Centered Rapid Sequence Induction Pharmacology

Friday, April 19
Classroom Session
Airway, Respiratory & Ventilation (JEMS)

"20 Etomidate, 100 of Succ." We hear it again and again on popular dramatic television shows and many paramedics get drawn into Rapid Sequence Induction with a sense of simplicity. However, the reality is much more complex and every patient should have a tailor-made approach for this procedure. This class will provide an overview of a patient-centered approach to RSI medication selection in an effort to optimize hemodynamics and subsequently patient outcomes.
