How did you do on this week's QOTW?
Answers: A, B
Rationale: During percutaneous translaryngeal jet ventilation, it is important to confirm adequate chest recoil and to maintain a patent upper airway to prevent barotrauma and aid ventilation. It is recommended that a 13- to 14-gauge translaryngeal catheter be used. A 20-gauge angiocatheter would be too small. If a flowmeter is used to deliver oxygen, the minimum flow rate is 15 L/min.
