48 female with 9/10 back pain after she sneezed yesterday. Patients husband is a retired medic. He wanted to know why we didn't give her pain meds.

She was resting comfortably on our gurney and said she had no pain currently.

How are you liking the KingVision? I've had mixed experiences.

It certainly has taken some getting used to... But overall I like it. While it is a cool toy/tool, I feel like it takes away a lot of the skill involved. Very simple technique.

It has worked every time on my first attempt where there is not emesis or excessive secretions..(knock on wood.) The lens of the camera gets blocked easily. Times like that I enjoy some good old suction and DL.

I haven't had the chance to tube in about 5 weeks, but yesterday I used it twice in a day- two tubes in one day!

50yo female who recently had an ablation but was at a sinus rate of 160 and felt/looked awful. Sent to triage on arrival by the charge nurse (they were busy since the other Level II was on a divert) while there were still beds available. Such a choice resulted in quite the *** chewing for the charge by the attending.
