Welcome to the next installment of the Anesthesia Patient Safety podcast hosted by Alli Bechtel. This podcast is an exciting journey towards improved anesthesia patient safety.
Join us for a Rapid Response to Questions from our Readers show. Our topics today include endotracheal tube cuff failure and changes in drug dilution for infusions in the operating room. Plus, we hear from the manufacturers in response to the cases. Are you performing a pre-induction check of the pilot balloon and ETT cuff? Are you checking the concentration of drugs diluted in the operating room prior to administration? Tune in as we address these questions and more?
Additional sound effects from: Zapsplat.
