I made this simple slideshow to illustrate the basics of rapid sequence intubation for students in health care (pre-medical, nursing, health care policy, etc). It's an introduction, not a comprehensive analysis, where I modify the "Seven P's" of intubation without getting bogged down in drug dosing and choice.
