Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

There is no more important task in emergency medicine than airway control. Whatever the method, it must be effective, for the problem airway does not allow the luxury of waiting until "the consultant" arrives or until the problem cures itself.

To illustrate how important airway control is, merely try holding your breath for one minute. Go ahead—try. Consider how uncomfortable this feels. Now consider a patient who does not have adequate ventilation or who cannot breathe. This patient may be in the acute phase of dying unless you control the situation immediately. This is exactly how important airway control is in emergency care—especially in the field.

If you are not skilled in airway control or attuned to the importance of proactive airway management, then the other fine emergency skills that you possess won't matter much: More of your patients will die from inadequate airway control than hemorrhage or trauma. At normal body temperature, irreversible brain damage begins after 4 to 6 minutes of anoxia. There are few survivable gunshot wounds or other mechanisms of trauma that will cause death in this time. When airway control is achieved early in the management of severe trauma, survival of these trauma victims is improved.

Appropriate control of the airway is the single most important skill that you will ever possess in the management of the acutely ill and injured patient. Indeed, this is the single most important task of the emergency physician, emergency nurse, emergency physician's assistant, emergency medical technician, or paramedic and first responder.

Although the need for better airway control is critical, the means to accomplish this task is anything but clear. The ideal airway maintenance technique would be simple to use, adaptable to every patient, protect the airway from aspiration, and easily provide adequate ventilation. However, this technique does not yet exist!
