Fantastic lecture on managing the angioedema airway by THE Dr. Roberts of Roberts and Hedges fame with commentary by Dr. Amal Mattu.
Take home points:
*Continue to use all of your allergy fighting meds (Steroids, epi, antihistamines) even though no evidence exists that they help
*Get consultants (particularly ENT-or surgery and Anesthesia) on board immediately if you suspect decompensation. Also, ALL of your backup airway: bougie, fiberoptic, cric kit
*TRY FFP !!!! Dr. Roberts points out several case reports of improvement and recommends trying 2-3 units of FFP in true emergent cases.
