Rich Levitan and Scott Weingart have published one of the best Practice Changing papers of the year. Their approach (NO DESAT! – Nasal Oxygen During Efforts Securing A Tube) has the potential to take much of the stress out of ED Airway Management and Intubation.

This one is FREE on the Annals site, so you have no excuse not to read it.
Don’t just take my word for it though – Life in the Fastlane has a comprehensive overview of the practical aspects of this paper.
