The COVID intubation box, a hot topic on social media – is it safe or effective? 

Jessica (not Jesse…) hosts her first podcast with guests Jonathan BegleyAlbert Chan and Vic Brazil exploring a new paper in Anaesthesia – An aerosol box for intubation in COVID-19 patients: an in-situ simulation crossover study. <link https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/anae.15115 > 

We cover why they conducted the study, the outcomes, the use of simulation and future direction. We also discussed some interesting topics like the MacGuyver Bias and the article that Albert wrote in Life in The Fast Lane about the intubation box.
