        While this has been out awhile, still good information….and dispelling myths….specifically this…. “The evidence for avoiding NPAs in cases of basal skull fracture is based solely upon two case reports. Securing the airway in an emergency takes precedence over a suspected basal skull fracture.” (P395)

              Good article! I’m not sure my medical director will buy into it and change our protocols though.
