Objective: The main objective of performing the orotracheal intubation procedure in rapid sequence is to prevent regurgitation of this content followed by bronchial aspiration. The definition of the term rapid sequence is summarized in the administration of the following medications: analgesia + hypnotic + fast-acting neuromuscular relaxant followed by orotracheal intubation. In this case, positive pressure ventilation under a face mask does not occur to avoid gastric distention and the dreaded consequence: bronchoaspiration. It is necessary for the doctor to know the technique, medications and complications of the procedure. Method: The aim of this study is a literature review of the rapid sequence orotracheal intubation technique. Articles were selected by searching the Scielo and Pubmed databases and Medline sources. The search in the databases was performed using keywords such as orotracheal intubation and rapid sequence. The search for articles was carried out between August 2022 and September 2022. Conclusion: Knowledge of the airway access technique is essential for the doctor who works in urgency/emergency and needs to be aware of the rapid sequence for lower risks of complications and better outcome.[Full Text Article]
