Placement of equipment for the intubation

Advanced Paramedicine

Advance Paramedicine - April 25, 2016

"This is the current version of the kit dump that I have developed for ornge as of 2016-04-22.
If there is not enough space for the full kit dump (as in patient bedside tray table or bigger), the sheet can be folded in half and the first left half contains most essential equipment that will fit on a standard mayo stand.
Equipment is arranged from left to right in terms of most common plan A B C's. The kit dump would be placed between the intubator and the assistant such that both have ready access to equipment. The kit dump cognitively offloads the task of equipment setup and also provides a standardized place to find things as well as a quick way to see what equipment might be missing."
