We update an evidence-based clinical practice guideline for the administration of propofol for emergency department procedural sedation. Both the unique considerations of using this drug in the pediatric population and the substantial new research warrant revision of the 2007 advisory. We discuss the indications, contraindications, personnel requirements, monitoring, dosing, coadministered medications, and adverse events for propofol sedation.

INTRODUCTION: Hypotension in the prehospital environment is common and linked to dose-dependent mortality. Bolus dose epinephrine (BDE) may reverse hypotension. We tested if BDE use to treat profound hypotension is associated with 24-hour survival. METHODS: We performed a retrospective case-cohort study of critical care transport patients with systolic blood pressure (SBP) <70 mmHg from January 2011 to January 2017. To account for baseline differences between treated and untreated patients, we used nearest neighbor matching to estimate the average treatment effect of BDE on 24-hour survival...

PURPOSE: Facial fractures are a harbinger when it comes to airway management. Facial fractures can cause airway obstruction or preclude the use of intubation. We aim to examine the etiologies, types of facial fractures, and the risk factors that may lead to requirement of an advance airway. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed of all facial fractures in the adult population in a level 1 trauma center in an urban environment (University Hospital in Newark, NJ)...

New observations from novel imaging techniques regarding the anatomy, dimensions, and shape of the pediatric airway have emerged and provide insight for potential changes in the clinical management of the airway in infants and children. These new findings are challenging the historical concepts of a funnel-shaped upper airway with the cricoid ring as the narrowest dimension. Although these tenets have been accepted and used to guide clinical practice in airway management, there are limited clinical investigations in children to support the validity of these concepts...

BACKGROUND: High-quality chest compressions are imperative for Cardio-Pulmonary-Resuscitation (CPR). International CPR guidelines advocate, that chest compressions should not be interrupted for ventilation once a patient's trachea is intubated or a supraglottic-airway-device positioned. Supraglottic-airway-devices offer limited protection against pulmonary aspiration. Simultaneous chest compressions and positive pressure ventilation both increase intrathoracic pressure and potentially enhances the risk of pulmonary aspiration...

Hypovolemic patients can develop postintubation hypotension (PIH). Our objective is to review the literature regarding PIH and the association with mortality. We searched MEDLINE from inception to February 2018. A meta-analysis was performed to assess the effect of PIH on mortality. The results of the meta-analysis were reported in forest plots of the estimated effects of the included studies with a 95 per cent confidence interval. Heterogeneity was evaluated using the I ² test, which corresponded to low ( I ² < 25%), medium ( I ² = 25-75%), and high ( I ² > 75%) heterogeneity...

INTRODUCTION: Hypotension is a critical event during the transport of critically ill patients. Push dose vasopressor use, though widely adopted by anesthesiologists, has only recently found use in the field of emergency medicine and may have utility in the management of out-of-hospital hypotension. This study aimed to characterize the hemodynamic effects and adverse events that occur following push dose epinephrine (PDE) administration by critical care transport (CCT) providers to correct documented hypotension...

The Neonatal Resuscitation Program, initially an expertise- and consensus-based approach, has evolved into an evidence-based algorithm. Ventilation remains the key component of successful resuscitation of neonates. Recent changes in recommendations include management of cord clamping, multiple methods to prevent hypothermia, rescinding of mandatory intubation and suction of the nonvigorous meconium-stained infant, electrocardiographic monitoring, and establishing an airway for ventilation before initiation of chest compressions...

OBJECTIVE: To determine survival associated with advanced airway management (AAM) compared with no AAM for adults with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. DESIGN: Cohort study between January 2014 and December 2016. SETTING: Nationwide, population based registry in Japan (All-Japan Utstein Registry). PARTICIPANTS: Consecutive adult patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, separated into two sub-cohorts by their first documented electrocardiographic rhythm: shockable (ventricular fibrillation or pulseless ventricular tachycardia) and non-shockable (pulseless electrical activity or asystole)...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Laryngeal tubes are commonly used by emergency medical services (EMS) personnel for out-of-hospital advanced airway management. The emergency department (ED) management of EMS-placed laryngeal tubes is unknown. We seek to describe ED airway management techniques, success, and complications of patients receiving EMS laryngeal tubes. METHODS: Using a keyword text search of ED notes, we identified patients who arrived at our ED with a laryngeal tube from 2010 through 2017...

PURPOSE: In hospital-based studies, patients intubated by physicians while in an inclined position compared to supine position had a higher rate of first pass success and lower rate of peri-intubation complications. We evaluated the impact of patient positioning on prehospital endotracheal intubation in an EMS system with rapid sequence induction capability. We hypothesized that patients in the inclined position would have a higher first-pass success rate. METHODS: Prehospital endotracheal intubation cases performed by paramedics between 2012 and 2017 were prospectively collected in airway registries maintained by a metropolitan EMS system...

Background and Aims: Orotracheal intubation (OTI) with fiberoptic bronchoscope (FOB) in spontaneous ventilation is one of the main techniques for patients with predicted difficult airway. Latest generation supraglottic airway devices have been designed to allow OTI through them. We assessed the safety and effectiveness of FOB-guided OTI through i-gel™ device which was inserted in spontaneously breathing patients with predicted difficult airway. Material and Methods: Eighty-five patients with difficult airway predictors were included...

BACKGROUND: Current evidence suggests that there is uncertainty about which videolaryngoscope performs best in obstetric anaesthesia. The aim of this study was to compare C-MAC and King Vision® videolaryngoscopes and direct laryngoscopy for tracheal intubation of patients undergoing caesarean section. METHODS: One hundred and eighty women were randomly assigned. The primary outcome was the time to tracheal intubation. Secondary outcomes were the time to the best laryngeal view, grade of Cormack and Lehane view, overall and first-pass success, intubation difficulty, the number of intubation attempts and optimisation manoeuvres; and complications...

BACKGROUND: Hypoxemia is the most common complication during tracheal intubation of critically ill adults and may increase the risk of cardiac arrest and death. Whether positive-pressure ventilation with a bag-mask device (bag-mask ventilation) during tracheal intubation of critically ill adults prevents hypoxemia without increasing the risk of aspiration remains controversial. METHODS: In a multicenter, randomized trial conducted in seven intensive care units in the United States, we randomly assigned adults undergoing tracheal intubation to receive either ventilation with a bag-mask device or no ventilation between induction and laryngoscopy...
