Ramblings of an Emergency Physician in Texas
as pronounced by one of our excellent ED nurses:
“When your respiratory rate and heart rate are the same, it’s time to intubate.”

Haha! I’ll have to remember that one!
Or time for atropine, depending on the circumstances.
As a resident I was always somewhat unclear as to the exact criteria for intubation. Now it all makes sense! :)
Then there is the other great rule:
“Blood goes round and round, air goes in and out. Any variation on this is a bad thing!”
