On This Episode:

Cricothyrotomy is what’s known as a High Acuity Low Occurrence (HALO) procedure. Meaning anesthesia providers do not often perform this procedure, but when the clinical situation calls for a cricothyrotomy…it can be extremely stressful!

In this episode, Jeremy reviews the anatomy of the larynx, talks about preparation for the procedure itself, and then goes over a surgical cricothyrotomy technique called the Bougie-Assisted Cricothyrotomy (otherwise known as Scalpel-Finger-Bougie).

This is certainly one episode you will not want to miss!

Here are some of the things you’ll learn on this show:

  • A last-ditch effort to provide life-saving ventilation. [4:11]
  • Reviewing the anatomy first. [7:25]
  • Identifying the cricothyroid membrane. [12:27]
  • The potential hardest part of the procedure. [14:26]
  • Walking through the surgical cricothyrotomy technique. [15:51]
  • Things to keep in mind if you’re ever doing this procedure. [23:34]

I started listening to this podcast religiously early on in my CRNA journey, a year before applying to CRNA school. The content in this podcast was one of my most helpful resources for getting into my first choice school, Wake Forest! It has also been a huge motivator for getting involved with the AANA now and throughout my career. I highly recommend this podcast to every prospective CRNA I meet.
