COVID-19 Resources: PPE, Intubation, Extubation Videos

A group of clinicians from our department created the following videos to aid others in reviewing a few processes that are very relevant to the work we’re doing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

These videos are intended for the education of healthcare workers to promote safe practices; they should not replace individual clinical judgement. The production and content of these videos is intended for educational purposes only.

Questions regarding these videos may be directed to Dr. Kamen Vlassakov, M.D. at kvlassakov@bwh.harvard.edu.
