We’ve all had calls that were completely BS, but what are you supposed to do in those situations?
Anyway, looking for a good book.
I have quite a basic question, that I have surprisingly not found in the literature. in order to intubate one must first hyperventilate the pt. now in an arrest hyperventilating comes at the price of compressions, and according to the latest research compressions are more important then ventilation.
