Author(s): Le Parc, Joanna M.; Bischof, Jason J.; King, Andrew M.; Greenberger, Sarah; Way, David P.; Panchal, Ashish R.; Finnegan, Geoffrey I.; Terndrup, Thomas E. | Abstract: Introduction: Emergency endotracheal intubation (ETI) is a common and critical procedure performed in both prehospital and in-hospital settings. Studies of prehospital providers have demonstrated that rescuer position influences ETI outcomes. However, studies of in-hospital rescuer position for ETI are limited. While we adhere to strict standards for the administration of ETI, we posited that perhaps requiring in-hospital rescuers to stand for ETI is an obstacle to effectiveness. Our obje...
