1. In this study, nearly 70% of patients who received remdesivir for compassionate use had an improvement in oxygen-support class and over half of intubated patients were able to be extubated. 2. As there was no control arm to the study, it is difficult to determine the true efficacy of...

1. For intensive care unit (ICU) patients undergoing tracheal intubation, bag-mask ventilation between induction and laryngoscopy resulted in less hypoxia during the procedure. 2. No difference in aspiration was reported for patients in the groups undergoing intubation with or without bag-mask ventilation. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent)       Study Rundown: A significant number of...

1. Advance practitioners and neonatal fellows had the highest rates of neonatal tracheal intubation (TI) attempts in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and delivery room (DR), while residents had fewer attempts. There was a significant association between the degree of training held by the intubator and the success...
The administration of anesthetic agents during induction results in a loss of protective upper airway reflexes, and thus may be associated with an increased risk of pulmonary aspiration. While uncommon in elective procedures where fasting rules have been observed, the risk of pulmonary aspiration is significantly increased in emergency...
1. In an American, randomized controlled trial, supraglottic airway (SGA) resuscitation was associated with marginally better neurological outcomes and 72-hour survival compared to endotracheal intubation (ETI) for patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA). 2. However, a similar English randomized controlled trial found no difference in favorable neurological outcomes 30 days...
1. In this randomized controlled trial, the frequency of prolonged desaturation during neonatal, nonemergent intubation was similar between atropine plus propofol compared to atropine plus atracurium and sufentanil. 2. The process of intubation with atropine-propofol took longer than intubation with atropine-atracurium-sufentanil. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: Neonates requiring nonemergent intubation...
1. In a retrospective cohort study of patients receiving mechanical ventilation in an ICU who underwent overnight extubations, there was an increase in ICU and hospital mortality compared with patient extubated during the daytime. 2. Patients undergoing overnight extubations were more likely to have mechanical ventilation (MV) duration of less...
1. The risk of reintubation in the first 72 hours was lower in patients who received high flow oxygen by nasal cannula compared to patients with conventional oxygen therapy, however, time to reintubation was not significantly different between the two groups. 2. Post-extubation respiratory failure was less common in patients...
