RSI Checklist & Failed Airway Algorithm

The PAH ED RSI Checklist and Failed Airway Algorithm have been updated.

These will be both on the wall of the Resus/Procedure Room bays and attached to the side of the Airway Trolleys. 

How you use the checklist will depend on the Clinical Situation, but if you like there will be a laminated copy that you can check with the attached sharpie on the Airway trolley. Clean it off afterwards with an Alcowipe.
