What You Can’t See: Uncovering the Dangers of Subglottic Drainage

Once our patients are intubated, what’s going on inside their airway? Is it protected from drainage and secretions? On today’s episode, we speak with anesthesiologist Dr. Benjamin Wang, MD, CMO and Founder of NeVap. We are going to learn about healthy airway design, how anesthetics and paralytics affect the airway, and how subglottic drainage can lead to pneumonia. We will also find out what lessons the ICU has to teach the OR. Tune in now!
