Emergency induction checklist training

  1. 1. (Oh no, not another checklist...)
  2. 2.  Emergency inductions in ICU and ED are risky:  Sicker patients  Difficult airways  Less time for preparation  Pressure to intervene  Human factors  Less familiar environment & equipment  Junior staff out of hours
  3. 3. Poor or incomplete planningInadequate provision of skilled staff and equipmentLack of capnography
  4. 4.  Emergency Induction checklist Capnography for all intubations Discussion of difficult intubation plans
  5. 5.  Simulation – patient needing intubating  Patient showing signs of sepsis and pneumonia  Hypoxaemic and hypotensive  Reduced level of conciousness Candidates asked to prepare for RSI 1st time as normal 2nd time using checklist Primary outcome = difference in score Secondary outcome = time taken to prepare
  6. 6.  Optimise position Connect oxygen and preoxygenate Request new bag of fluids Request vasopressor Capnography Suction Guedel airway LMA Bougie Propofol infusion (or alternative) Discussion of plan in case of failed intubation
  7. 7.  18 anaesthetists recruited 7 consultants 3 SAS grade 8 trainees (CT2 and above) Median Score (IQR) Mean Time (secs)Without checklist 6 / 11 (4 to 7.25) 336.3With checklist 10 / 11 (8 to 11) 378.2P value 0.001* 0.097***Wilcoxon signed rank test score 150.5**paired t-test
  8. 8.  The checklist significantly reduced errors in preparation for induction This appeared to be regardless of experience There was not a significant difference in time taken With practice time taken may even be reduced
  9. 9.  No. You think you do. Chances are we all forget 1 or 2 things on the list. We want everyone to use it – regardless of grade and experience.
  10. 10.  No – there will be no paper copies It is not a box ticking exercise  It is not a box ticking exercise ▪ It is not a box ticking exercise It is to be read out loud by the team leader during pre-oxygenation.  All team members must participate.  Record in the notes that it was done.
  11. 11.  Yes  it will reduce errors in preparing for RSI’s We have tested this.  In a simulated RSI ▪ Median without checklist 6/11 (IQR 4 to 7.25), median with checklist 10/11 (IQR 8 to 11). Wilcoxon signed rank test score was 150.5, (P=0.001).
  12. 12.  It is unlikely to significantly prolong preparation When done well it may reduce preparation time It may also reduce stress It helps everyone work better as a team It will reduce the risk of errors It is time well spent
  13. 13.  All emergency inductions outside of theatre / anaesthetic room. ED, ICU, HDU, Recovery ? On the wards Not in cardiac arrest situation. ie whenever drugs are given for induction outside of theatres
  14. 14.  Much of intensive care is costly and based on limited evidence. A checklist is free. Success on ICU is rarely based on one intervention, but rather 100’s of interventions that must all go right… Can a simple checklist help to make sure that intubation goes right?
