CU Contributes Key Data to National Study of Airway Management
Dec 8, 2021
Securing the airway in critical illness is one of the most critically important skills for emergency clinicians. In 2018, a single-center randomized trial suggested that clinicians should routinely change their approach to airway management to use a bougie (long, thin, introducer aid) when intubating. This large, multi-center, randomized trial showed that physicians had equal success with the bougie or traditional approaches, across a range of populations. Led by Drs. Trent and Ginde, and by Michelle Howell, RN, CU was one of the most robust contributors of data.
