Postoperative sore throat (POST) following general anesthesia with endotracheal intubation is a common complication. We hypothesized that lidocaine jelly applied to the tapered cuff of the endotracheal tube (ETT) might decrease the incidence of POST most commonly arising from endotracheal intubation.

Cuff positions of endotracheal tubes should be confirmed to ensure safe anesthesia. However, determining the cuff positions relative to the cricoid by using chest radiography or fiberoptic bronchoscop...
Endotracheal intubation is a medical procedure that is often indicated in both the perioperative and critical care environments. Cuffed endotracheal tubes (ETT) allow for safer and more efficient deli...
Nasogastric (NG) tube insertion is a common procedure in the clinical setting that causes much discomfort and pain for the patient. Pain control is often suboptimal, as many NG tube insertions are per...
Respiratory care advances such as the introduction of ventilatory assistance have been associated with postintubation airway stenosis resulting from tracheal injury at the site of the inflatable cuff ...
This study evaluates difference of the endotracheal tube cuff pressure between a tapered- versus a cylindrical- shaped cuff after changing from neutral to hyperextension of neck. Fifty pa...
Researchers will compare the effects of lidocaine versus air, as a way to fill the breathing tube cuff which is gently inflated to hold in place the trachea (airway) during surgery. Air is...
When using nitrous oxide for general anesthesia, nitrous oxide diffusion induces intracuff hyperinflation of the endotracheal tube. Furthermore the difference among various types of cuffed...
In elective gynecology and general surgery patients age 18 and over requiring endotracheal tube (ETT) intubation, what is the efficacy of ropivacaine 0.5% vs. lidocaine 2% as the medium to...
Suction Above Cuff Endotracheal Tube (SACETT) has a dorsal port above the cuff designed to allow continuous or intermittent suctioning of secretions from the subglottic space. Thus, it fac...
Removal of an endotracheal tube from the patient.
Procedure in which an anesthetic such as a gas or mixture of gases is inhaled through a tube into the lungs.
Jelly-like connective tissue of the UMBILICAL CORD that contains MESENCHYMAL STROMAL CELLS.
Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom.

Injuries to the ROTATOR CUFF of the shoulder joint.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
