Aeromedical management of tracheal tube cuffs

My friends over at #badEM are doing some sterling work to put Africa on the #FOAM map.  This latest post, with some practical investigation by flight medic Jo Park-Ross deserves a good hard look and some introspection.  She makes an impassioned plea for the use of cuff pressure manometers in the aeromedical environment (as they should be used wherever patients are intubated) with the practical demonstration of why it is so important.  Please go and check it out on #badEM.
