BACKGROUND Prehospital intubation has been challenged on the grounds that it predisposes to hyperventilation, which is detrimental after traumatic brain injury (TBI), and impairs venous return in patients with hypovolemia. We sought to determine the incidence of hyperventilation among a cohort of trauma patients undergoing prehospital intubation and the impact of ventilation on outcome after severe TBI. METHODS Data were prospectively collected for all intubated trauma patients transported… CONTINUE READING
