Podcast 121 - The Curve & Airway Management

A few months ago Sam published a blog on the oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve. If you haven't checked it out I highly recommend reading that before listening to this. In this episode, Sam and I discuss what this curve teaches us about airway management.

Click here to read the original blog.

Topics covered in this conversation:

*Non-linear qualities of the OHDC drop.

*If you can see the glottic opening with your laryngoscope, but the patient is < 90%, should you just place the tube or back out and re-oxygenate?

*Systemic vs. Regional shifts (the smartest system in the world)

Check out this video podcast and let us know what you think!
