Abstract

When properly performed, intubation is effective for airway protection and ensures adequate oxygenation; it also makes hyperventilation (and associated negative outcomes) easier and more likely.10,60,62,71,72 Optimal outcomes require choosing the right patients, achieving the highest success rates through training, and avoiding hyperventilation after intubation in patients with traumatic brain injury.
