  • Room: Miramar
  • Rethinking the ABCs: What about the breath? 
  • Presenter: Kirk Hinkley, MD, FACEP, Director of Emergency Medicine Education

While we have standard solutions to address the airway and circulation during an acute critical illness, the breath often is forgotten until impending or clinically identifiable respiratory failure. Increased work of breathing is an early warning sign of badness to come. Cardiac workload dedicated to breathing can increase from less than 1% in the normal state of healthy person to 25% or more for a patient with a rapidly progressing illness. Addressing the increased work of breathing early in the treatment of critical care illness may extend the runway to treat the patients underlying condition prior to respiratory failure and may improve outcomes.
