Airway management in patients with Moebius syndrome can be difficult due to the presence of orofacial malformations. This paper aims to present our institution's experience in the evaluation and manag...
The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) difficult airway algorithm and the Vortex approach are difficult airway aids. Our objective was to demonstrate that a simpler cognitive model would faci...
Airway remodeling, which encompasses structural changes in airway is a main feature of asthma. Interleukin-33 (IL-33) has been reported to be a vital cytokine in airway remodeling in asthma, but the u...
Recognizing patients in whom endotracheal intubation is likely to be difficult can help alert physicians to the need for assistance from a clinician with airway training and having advanced airway man...
An innovative technique for airway management, utilizing a small diameter, short-cuffed, orotracheal tube for assisting rigid bronchoscopy in critical airway obstruction is reported. The device, part ...
The incidence of difficult airway in paediatric population is up-to date not well described. Difficult airway is connected with significant airway-related morbidity and mortality. The majo...
Supraglottic airway tools, one of the tools used in the management of the difficult airway. American Society of Anesthesiologists and the Difficult Airway Society of the United Kingdom air...
Difficult airway is a major reason of anesthesia related injuries with latent life threatening complications. Foresee difficult airway in the preoperative period is vital for the patient's...
Literature shows that anaesthetists have a low success-rate when trying to access the airway percutaneously in case of failed ventilation and intubation. The study will investigate anaest...
The purpose of the study is to compare three supraglottic airway devices (Combitube, Easytube, laryngeal mask airway) to endotracheal intubation in a simulated difficult airway scenario in...
A form of bronchial disorder with three distinct components: airway hyper-responsiveness (RESPIRATORY HYPERSENSITIVITY), airway INFLAMMATION, and intermittent AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION. It is characterized by spasmodic contraction of airway smooth muscle, WHEEZING, and dyspnea (DYSPNEA, PAROXYSMAL).
The structural changes in the number, mass, size and/or composition of the airway tissues.
Evaluation, planning, and use of a range of procedures and airway devices for the maintenance or restoration of a patient's ventilation.
A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.
A congenital or acquired condition of underdeveloped or degeneration of CARTILAGE in the TRACHEA and the BRONCHI. This results in a floppy non-rigid airway making patency difficult to maintain.
