From intubation to extubation, management of the patient with an
endotracheal tube can challenge the skills of even the most experienced
health care professional. This valuable video can help provide those skills
by covering the following topics: How endotracheal tubes work; patient
preparation and intubation; taping methods; assuring proper tube placement;
mouth and nasal care; suctioning (traditional and closed suction
techniques); how to measure cuff pressure; drug administraion through an
endotracheal tube; repositioning the tube; cuff inflation (minimal occlusive
volume technique and minimal leak technique); cuff deflation; extubation.

"I've been accepted to Montana Tech's graduate school to pursue a master's degree in geophysical engineering. I have also accepted a full-funded graduate research assistantship to work with the Montana National Guard on developing magnetic techniques to detect unexploded ordinance. My summer internship with Geolex, a company under contract with the Guard, will study acquiring data, performing analysis, and offering interpretation on unexploded ordinance." [ more ]
