BUHE for RSI

R.E.B.E.L.EM - By Cara Borelli - January 06, 2020
..."Authors’ Conclusion:
“In the general population, BUHE intubation position provides a non-inferior laryngeal view to GLSC intubation. The laryngeal views obtained in both approaches were superior to the laryngeal view obtained in the sniffing position. In view of the many advantages of the BUHE position for intubation, the lack of proven adverse effects, the simplicity, and the cost-effectiveness, we propose that clinicians should consider the BUHE position as the standard intubation position for the general population.”
Clinical Take-Home Point:
Both video-assisted laryngoscopy and elevating the head of the bed with direct laryngoscopy can help improve visualization of the glottis during intubation."
