PMID:  1492895     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
To assess the performance of intubation skills by advanced trained ambulance personnel, a prospective study was carried out of the intubation of cardiac arrest victims by ambulance personnel in the field. Twenty-eight ambulance personnel attempted the intubation of 87 patients over 2 years. Eighty-five patients were initially successfully intubated, one endotracheal tube became displaced and cuff leakage occurred on three occasions. This was treated appropriately in each instance. Ambulance personnel can perform the skills of intubation successfully in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest victims.
