This is a worked example of a patient with asthma exacerbation.

Great review on Life in the Fast Lane (including intubation)
Here’s an introduction to ACLS 2010, an important skill you should pick up not only for your ER rotation, but for all your rotations! Let me know if you have any questions. I’ll be putting up more vids as I make ’em.
Again, leave me feedback in the comments.
The first part of ACLS is A and B… yes, the order has changed to CAB for adults suffering from likely cardiac causes, but I’m old fashioned, so let’s cover A & B first…
So let’s talk about capnography and intubations, etc. The use of capnography is a big change in the new 2010 guidelines. Looks like we got some new equipment to buy.
