We have standardised the approach to performing this rare but high stakes procedure in our Emergency Department. We recognise that there are many alternative ways to approach the procedure, all with their own merits and drawbacks. Our technique is subject to ongoing review and may change as new evidence emerges.

In this video, we demonstrate our current method and the rationale behind it. Links are to text versions and a step-by-step photo guide.
