In this episode of The FlightBridgED Podcast, Eric and Dave Olvera carve out some time while they are on the road to talk about airway management preparation strategies. Dave has invested many years of his professional career investigating, and researching, among other important projects, how to best optimize intubation success. For as long as I can remember, we have used difficult airway predictors in our field practice, such as LEMON(S), to help prepare for eventualities when placing an endotracheal tube. Dave and his colleagues have determined that those predictors are great, but may not be as applicable to field intubations. With mountains of research at hand the HEAVEN criteria was created, along with best-practice strategies for increasing intubation success in an ever-changing environment.
