SGEM#281: EM Docs Got an AmbuBag – The PreVent Trial
"CLINICAL QUESTION: IS BAG-MASK VENTILATION (BMV) PERFORMED DURING THE APNEIC PERIOD OF RSI (DEFINED AS THE TIME BETWEEN ADMINISTRATION OF RSI MEDICATIONS AND INTUBATION) IN CRITICALLY ILL ADULTS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE?

BAG-MASK VENTILATION GROUP HAD HIGHER OXYGEN SATURATIONS AND LESS SEVERE HYPOXEMIA COMPARED TO THE CONTROL GROUP.

SGEM BOTTOM LINE: IT IS UNCLEAR IF BAG-MASK VENTILATION IN CRITICALLY ILL ADULT PATIENTS REQUIRING INTUBATION PROVIDES A CLINICALLY IMPORTANT BENEFIT OR IS SAFE."
