sun7777 said:Actually, I meant tips for extubation other than deep extubation. I have heard you can give iv lido but it seems hard to time properly given that some pts start to buck early and others later. I have also heard that you can try to titrate in narc at the end, but doing so may prevent the patient from breathing. I have also heard of people modifying the ET tube in order to administer topical lido to the cords but modifying every ET tube seems impractical. Is there an easy way to use LTA at the end of the case?
