I’m updating this thread because I’m in the midst of an intubation marathon. I’ve been trying to get the cath in for hours. I’ve tried standing, sitting, laying down, heating pad for relaxation, hot shower, different size catheters, inserting a straw inside the Cather to keep it from bender - every trick I know. I’m desperately looking for other tricks to try before I need to go to the ER. Any ideas?
