Intubation of Potential COVID-19 Patients
- Use checklist if available (see example: File:Harbor COVID Airway Management v3-16-20.pdf)
- Use BVM with viral filter or avoid BVM altogether, if possible
- Use RSI to prevent coughing gagging; consider higher dosing of paralytics.
- Use video laryngoscopy to keep provider face further away from patient (afterwards, clean with grey wipes, observe 3 min wet time)
