Trauma and Critical Care

Selected EM SJ – approved guides and quick reference

Mike Campbell and Dr. Devon Webster

This guide is provided in case of exceptional circumstances, for example overwhelming numbers of patients requiring ventilation with insufficient trained Respiratory Therapists available for every patient. We would always recommend that a Respiratory Therapists should be present for all ventilated patients wherever possible. However, RTs are not always available in all Emergency Departments and healthcare professionals are having to multitask in areas that are unfamiliar to them. This guide is provided to help physicians in these exceptional circumstances.
