Caution: Paralyzing Agent
If anyone meets criteria for a supraglottic airway, put it in.Question;
I understand the mechanics of the possibility of upper//lower airway burn and compromise;
If a BLS Crew, was on first scene, (and ALS was extended ETA), would an IGEL (for an unconscious Pt) be an interim Vent option, until ALS or ER can tube em? (Note: I-Gels are in the Scope of Practice for EMT-B here in AZ).
I've read that a large bore I-gel can be used as a conduit for later intubation, in some circumstances.
Btw, what was the Kids Tidal Volume and 02 Sat?
