In this episode, we are joined by Tyler Christifulli of the FOAMfrat blog and podcast (formally Lifestar Podcast), and FlightBridgeEd. Apneic oxygenation has been recently popularized for use during RSI in an attempt to decrease desaturation time during the apneic period of induction. Inspired by a discussion between Tyler and Dr. Jeff Jarvis, we decided to collaborate in testing the inspired O2 capabilities of several commonly used nasal cannulas with this purpose in mind. You may be surprised by our results. Tune in as we briefly discuss the physiological process of apneic oxygenation, and the equipment you should and should not be using for supplementation.
