Learning Center: The Future of Prehospital Intubation: A Professional and Personal Perspective on the ROC Pragmatic Airway Resuscitation Trial (PART)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Already being referred to on social media as the "paramedics can't intubate trial," the Pragmatic Airway Resuscitation Trial (PART) demonstrates a statistically significant improvement in neurologically-intact survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, specifically with the blind insertion of a supraglottic airway versus more endotracheal intubation (ETI). A 'pragmatic' trial largely because of cost limitations, this study did not otherwise attempt to optimize cardiac resuscitation or airway management.  With this perspective in mind, how do we interpret the results of this study? Is there a way to practice evidence-based prehospital medicine but avoid taking a one-size-fits-all mentality? Do we throw out endotracheal tubes with the bathwater, or is there a more measured approach we can take to interpreting and utilizing the results of this and other data?
