Dear EAMS members and airway friends,
IntubateCOVID is an observational study on how the clinicians managed the intubation procedure in COVID -19 infected patients. Data was collected from 32 countries (607 institutions, 4,476 intubations) with different economical level, most of the procedures being from ICUs.
The authors found differences on first-attempt success depending on the equipment that clinicians used, the operator’s previous intubating experience and the economical level of the country.
It offers some clues on how to manage the intubation procedure in future airway related pandemics.
Hope you find it interesting!
