I was in class on Monday and had a fantastic instructor discussing RSI, he made it very clear that it is not something to be taken lightly, but not a skill we should be greatly afraid of performing when a patient needs RSI. He also admitted that is ok to recognize that you may be a little afraid everytime you are faced with doing RSI simply because the patient is in very serious trouble and there are great risks for both you and the patient involved. I appreciate when an instructor is that honest about himself and what I may face in a situation or have go through my mind.
I think that what made him a such a good instructor is that he has passion about being a paramedic and an instructor and he was not afraid to show it. He is a good example of the kind of Paramedic I hope to be.
