Strategies to prevent unrecognised oesophageal intubation during out-of-hospital cardiac arrest

Nolan J. Resuscitation 2008; 76(1): 1-2

From the abstract: ‘Tracheal intubation has long been regarded as a fundamental and essential component of advanced life support (ALS). It has been assumed that tracheal intubation improves the chances of surviving from cardiac arrest. There are no reliable data to support this belief and there are several reasons why attempted intubation can be harmful, particularly when undertaken by inexperienced individuals.’
