RNs Intubating??? - Page 3Register Today!
- Jul 16, '12 by turnforthenurseRNWhere I work, RNs do not intubate. The ER doc is usually the one who will intubate. RTs can do it but I always see the ER docs doing it, or the patient's primary physician if they respond in a timely manner. RNs are allowed to insert an OPA or NPA until a more advanced airway can be accessed, if needed.
