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)
