SMACC GOLD presents 'Cricoid: To press, or not to press'


SMACC GOLD presents 'Cricoid: To press, or not to press'

Michael Macias

Cricoid pressure continues to be a highly debated topic in EM and to be honest it appears that know one really knows whether it works or not. The literature on it is scarce and our initial evidence is based off a small non randomized trial is a single hospital setting. The SMACC GOLD debate on cricoid pressure makes the discussion even more ridiculous, if not mocking the entire issues in general. Listen to this entertaining lecture and visit the LITFL page on cricoid pressure to come up with your own opinion on this topic that continues to be the bane of the RSI world.
