We lovingly greet you in this really difficult period for our work, in which we must increasingly think not only about the health of our patients, but also about our safety.
“Unfortunately” we work in a regional reference hospital for Covid-19 and we are particularly attentive to the safety of us doctors and our collaborators, risking to make us consider ourselves too apprehensive, at times...
We use the aerosol box, video laryngoscope and the most valid individual protection devices. Thanks to this approach, at the moment we have not registered any cases of infection in healthcare personnel.
Here are two recent articles that validate our clinical practices are good quality mannequin-based simulation studies.
The first highlights strengths and weaknesses of the “aerosol box”, an economic and optimizable device to be used not only in the intubation phase but also in nursing management.
The second compares two protective equipments on difficult airway management through the use of different instruments for intubation.
Looking forward to meeting you at the next congress, when all this is over.
