RSI checklist from Kiwi Contributor!

20130801-060427.jpg

In the PHARM mailbox this month, Dr Jonathon Wills, from New Zealand, sent me his RSI checklist he had developed for his ICU and helicopter retrieval service.

He wanted to share it in the spirit of FOAMED

So check it out!

RSI_final (1)

In his email explaining the checklist I found this paragraph on implementation to be very important so reproduce it here now :

Buy-in was achieved by getting the nurses on board. I sold it to them as this is a tool that will get people doing things in the same way that maximises success. It is your tool to empower you to get doctors doing it right! They are the continuity in the retrieval service so it was important to set up a process that worked for them. It also means they have the ability to intervene early if thing go wrong because they all know what the next step is and when it should be activated.

Thanks Jono for the Kiwi contribution to FOAMEd!

Development of a standard operating procedure and checklist for rapid sequence induction in the critically ill

sherren

Dr Peter Sherren during Sydney HEMS days

Of late folks have been sending me their latest RSI/intubation checklists which is brilliant stuff but I came across this open access article written by Dr Peter Sherren, an ex Sydney HEMS registrar who is now a consultant anaesthetist back in UK.

The paper he writes along with his co-authors is an excellent example of checklist design in relation to intubation of the critically ill patient.

Check the full open access article here courtesy of Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine
