Our overall aim is to decrease the percentage of patients who have “complicated airways” during emergency department intubations at the University of New Mexico. The specific short-term goal of the project is to decrease the rate of desaturations below 80% from the current rate of 30% to a rate at or below 25% by April 20th, 2013.
