Patients with mucopolysaccharidoses have physical changes to their airways over time. Due to the natural progression of their disease, these patients become more difficult to intubate as they get older.

Airway management is a major competence of clinical anesthesia. Knowledge of available materials and skills in the use of specific methods and techniques are essential and should be trained routinely....
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...
Pediatric-specific difficult airway guidelines include algorithms for 3 scenarios: unanticipated difficult tracheal intubation, difficult mask ventilation, and cannot intubate/cannot ventilate. While ...
Difficult airway management and obstructive sleep apnea may contribute to increased risk of perioperative morbidity and mortality. The objective of this systematic review and meta-analysis (SRMA) is t...
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...
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...
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...
Mallampati score > 3 generally indicate difficult airway and difficult intubation. Most anesthesiologist usually use this score system to predict difficult airway management. Different lar...
This is a non-human study, conducted in a simulation environment, with simulator manikins, and volunteers from anaesthesia. Trainees in their first 2 years of anaesthetics training will be...
Obese patients may have difficulty in airway management.Patients who have body mass index > 35 are challenging patients for anesthesiologist. Short neck, more adipose tissue may be reasons...
Evaluation, planning, and use of a range of procedures and airway devices for the maintenance or restoration of a patient's ventilation.
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).
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.
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.
The administration of medication or fluid through a needle directly into the bone marrow. The technique is especially useful in the management of pediatric emergencies when intravenous access to the systemic circulation is difficult.
