The Standardised and Safe Intubation Package (SSIP) provides a standardised, safe approach to patient intubation in Emergency Departments (EDs) that can be replicated in most Queensland Health facilities.
Derived from longstanding practices safely used in the retrieval setting and in tertiary EDs, it consists of customisable resources including:
• Equipment Shadow Board
• Drug Draw-up Guide
• Pre- and Post-implementation Checklists
• User Guide
SSIP provides valuable clinical resources for a high acuity, but often infrequent procedure.
