The BLS PCS states to splint open/closed femur fracture with a traction splint unless partially amputated. I am just wondering, would still be safe and indicated to use a sager splint when there is also suspicion of a pelvic fracture?
The updated AHA guidelines indicate an increase in the ventilation rate to 20-30 breaths per minute for children and infants respective in INTUBATED patients. Does this apply to patients who have a supraglottic airway in situ as well? Thank you!
Questions regarding intubation. Should we be opting for aggressive airway management with intubation or SGA on VSA patients as well as severely obtunded non-asthmatic patients where patient presentation would allow? Should this take precedence over ACLS drugs during cardiac arrest? When intubated with inline filter in place are we permitted to BVM an normal rate?
