COVID-19 Intubation Simulation

Watch this simulation demonstration of an intubation of a patient with COVID-19

This video by Dr Arnold Somasunderam and Dr Rose English, trainee anaesthetists at UCLH, demonstrates a simulation of an intubation in a patient with COVID-19. The intubation checklist and guidelines used in the simulation were developed locally but based upon the consensus guidelines described in the previous step.

The video is best enjoyed with the subtitling on – as it happens in real life, wearing PPE makes communication more difficult.

Have you been involved in, or seen, initiatives aimed at improving safety in the care of patients with COVID-19? Please move on to the next step to add your contribution. We are looking forward to learning from you!
