In this month’s short, Darren Braude connects with Calvin Brown, MD. Calvin is the editor of the upcoming 5th edition of The Manual of Emergency Airway Management. There are lots of new goodies in the book, but the two we focus on are: Pretreatment (it’s out) and Preoxygenation (it’s better).

Darren B., M.D. -

Great question. In my humble opinion, NO! The enemy of good is better. If it's working well, leave it alone until the situation is stabilized and all preparations are made and personnel available for a safe exchange. I would generally not send a patient to the cath lab with an extraglottic airway in place, however, but it's not out of the question especially if the exchange is predicted to be very difficult and the cath team is ready.
