You're just wrong, man.
Lol, please please tell me you're not a doctor. Maybe go grab a dictionary and then tell me intubation and auscultation are the same thing. Here's an ett and a stethoscope let's see you intubate. Lol

Your overall theme is incorrect. Go to any operating room and you will see anaesthesiologists, who intubate multiple times on a daily basis, use their steth to confirm placement.

Lol, no direct laryngoscopy is a technique used, most often, to intubate. I'd love to see anyone of you intubate with an ett and a stethoscope. Lol. Fyi etco2
Is easier and definitive.
We're not talking about confirming placement of esophageal vs tracheal intubation, we're talking about confirming placement of endobronchial vs tracheal intubation so you don't end up ventilating the right main stem and blowing the other lung.

And how are you going to get capnography in the field? Not like you have an entire anesthesia machine out in the field.

Dang prices back to normal.


I lost my stethescope like 3 weeks ago and have been using one of those shitty 'fisher price'(we call em) disposable red isolation stethescopes at work ever since.

Worst. Rt. Ever.

It wouldn't be fun. I'd just be loading her up with fentanyl and propofol and then paralyzing her.

Majority of RFDers make 6 figures. Most of them are doctors with student debt. RFD is full of cheap rich people.

I work with cardiac anaethetists daily and more often then not they don’t listen to confirm placement. Gold standard is direct visualization of the tube passing through the cords and waveform capnography.
None of you people get it the original statement was they needed a stethoscope for intubation, you don’t need it for intubation. It can be used for placement but again theres a difference between intubation and placement. Nobody can guarantee correct placement just by auscultation anyways.

You started this by saying you don't need a stethoscope to intubate. Nowhere in the original post that you quoted was that claim made. You didn't read properly and wanted to look smart.

You're not going to use the gold standard to confirm placement with every intubation. Auscultation is a sufficiently sensitive and specific method of assessing placement and is the one that is used most often.

Since this will be good for playing doctor, any nurse accessories available for those times?
