The difficult airway remains an ongoing concern in daily anesthesia practice, with awake intubation being an important component of its management. Classically, fiberoptic bronchoscope-assisted trache...
Difficult or failed intubation is a major contributor to morbidity for patients and liability for anesthesiologists.Updated difficult airway management guidelines and incorporation of new airway devic...
Although prehospital advanced airway management (AAM) (i.e., endotracheal intubation [ETI] and insertion of supraglottic airways [SGA]) has been performed for paediatric out-of-hospital cardiac arrest...
Tracheal mucosal damage is a well-known complication of endo-tracheal intubation and animal models are essential for studying the underlying cellular injury cascade. The novel rat model described here...
Supraglottic Airway devices(SGAs) like I-Gel and C-LMA ( classic laryngeal mask airway ) have been used as a conduit for tracheal intubation using ventilating bougie. General Anaesthesia w...
Various supraglottic airways may be used as a dedicated airway for insertion of intubating fibrescope and tracheal intubation in the patients with difficult to manage airways (Difficult Ai...
The study aims to establish which of the two second generation Supraglottic Airway Devices, the I-gel or the the laryngeal ask airway (LMA) Protector, is best suited to be used as a condui...
In severe cases after craniotomy, tracheal intubation is often required, and the removal of tracheal intubation presents certain risks and challenges. Premature removal of the tracheal int...
This is a survey of airway codes, which are emergency mobile phone requests for anaesthetic help to manage acute airway crises in the hospital (out of theatre, out of Surgical Intensive Ca...
The use of sophisticated methods and equipment to treat cardiopulmonary arrest. Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) includes the use of specialized equipment to maintain the airway, early defibrillation and pharmacological therapy.
The obtaining and management of funds for hospital needs and responsibility for fiscal affairs.
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.
