If EMS providers anywhere in this country are currently doing it, then it  
HAS to be based on solid scientific evidence (yes, I'm joking)... 
I would have responded sooner but live in the country and have dial-up...  
MDConsult and literature searches on dial-up... yeah, not fun,  and Charles  
shared the abstract for every study I would have referenced and then some. There  
are a couple other studies that evaluate the ability of nurses with minimal  
airway training to reliably place supraglottic devices, specifically the  
Combitube, in the setting of in-house codes. I have to plead guilty of saying  
evidence when I probably meant eminence-based, as when I went back and looked at  
lecture notes, the largest study actually involved EMT-P's 
Thank you Charles for sharing that information - and thank you Keith for  the 
challenge to keep posts honest.
