    Hi Minh,
    Great video. I use the same technique for procedural sedation in the ED. I work over two different sites – in one hospital, we have an instream device like yours and I use the same technique. In the other, we have a sidestream device and I usually snip off the connector and tape the tubing to the patients cheek/upper lip. This can then sit under a facemask or BVM. The only issue I’ve found with the instream device is that when you need to switch to BVM because of apnoea/obstruction, the ETCO2 monitoring is temporarily lost (until it’s added to the BVM circuit).
