Drew Hughes died after an ET tube was improperly inserted while he rode in an ambulance. He had been injured in a skateboarding accident, but anoxia caused by the intubation error killed him. On this episode, we hear from his father about the Do It For Drew foundation he and his wife started to keep medical treatment errors from happening, and Bradley Dean, a battalion chief over a training division, about the mistakes made and learning from them.
