Who do I listen to?
I learned for myself from experience and who speaks the most medical logic. What makes the most sense. I need to learn from the Silos and Egos in Airway Management around this world.
The Difficult Airway is the one you are actively experiencing some set backs and failures, but haven't given up since the patient is still alive to survive another attempt at Rescue Oxygenation and/or Rescue Intubation.
The Failed airway is the one you experienced and reflect on because of your failure.
