Children are often considered to be just small adults, much to the dismay of pediatricians everywhere. But when it comes to peri-intubation cardiac arrest, is it true? We know that, in adults, peri-intubation hypoxia is a strong predictor of cardiac arrest. Is this true in pediatric patients?
This episode features another oral board case with Dr. Erin Lincoln (@ErinTWL) and live discussion with Mike (@MikeVerkest), Jeff (@DrJeffJarvis) and special guest Dr. Peter Antevy (@HandtevyMD). Our live segment had lots of great listener questions which led Peter and Jeff to go deep down the rabbit hole of safe intubation practices.
