These can be used for training purposes. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC22LMIG5Bwqhreic_DFHATw Best Wishes Dr Alok Sharma Consultant Neonatologist Princess Anne Hospital Southampton UK
  2. Please note we dont use intubation drugs for either LISA or INSURE. Suxamethonium is very short acting but we only use our preintubation drugs where we plan not to extubate immediately. I would not routinely sedate and paralyse a baby I was planning to insure. I simply dont buy the argument that the use of Fentanyl at 0.5 microgram per kg has any analgesic effect for the patient. It might do for the nurses looking after the baby. If you want to use analgesia during intubation best use it properly to have an analgesic effect. Alok
