From a listener
Why not put the head of the bed up when intubating GI bleed to put gravity on your side?
and Mizuho's reply
"Thanks Rick for your comments. Yes it's a great suggestion. If you can maneuver having a tilted headboard while intubating (I'm not quite tall enough for that :-)) but if you can manage it, I would say absolutely use gravity to help you. And agree tilting HOB after intubation is vital too! Great suggestion. Thanks for listening. - Miz"

What a fantastic series!! I like the didactic bedside teaching format. Helps me think through the case in real time.

any role for tranexamic acid in these massive bleeders?? are there any real down sides?
