Papers of July 2022

Welcome back to July’s papers of the month! Three more papers with lots of interesting points to consider with regards to our practice.

First up, we all pay a reasonable amount of consideration and planning for a surgical airway if one should be needed. But how much thought is given to securing the tube after it’s been performed? In this month’s first paper we have a look at a really neat study comparing how secure different methods are and how easily they can be completed.

Next we take a look at a paper that considers the impact of adrenaline versus noradrenaline in our post ROSC patients who are haemodynamically unstable, can the choice of agent have a significant impact on outcome?

Finally we take a look at the implementation of video laryngoscopy in a prehospital service and consider the impact on success.

Once again we’d love to hear any thoughts or feedback either on the website or via twitter @TheResusRoom.
