The submental intubation is a well-described technique as an alternative for the tracheostomy in the airway management in patients with contraindications for the nasotracheal and cannot remain in the orotracheal position due to the need to maintain the intermaxillary fixation. Residents and young oral and maxillofacial surgeons could have experienced some difficulty performing the technique first described by Altemir (1986). This report aims to describe a new device designed to facilitate and simplify the technique helping surgeons on the submental endotracheal intubation.

Endotracheal intubation is a commonly used method for securing airway. It is considered to be safe but it can still lead to some complications of the airway. Recurrent nerve paralysis due to endotrach...
Emesis occurs during airway management and results in pulmonary aspiration at rates of 0.01% - 0.11% in fasted patients undergoing general anesthesia and 0% - 22% in non-fasted emergency department pa...
The optimal method to train novice learners to perform endotracheal intubation (ETI) is unknown. The study objective was to compare two models: unembalmed cadaver vs simulation manikin.
The safety and adverse event rate of supraglottic airway (SGA) devices for cesarean delivery (CD) is poorly characterized. The primary aims of this review were to determine whether the first-pass succ...
BACKGROUND Sevoflurane inhalation induction is widely used in pediatric anesthesia, but the minimum alveolar concentration for endotracheal intubation (MACEI) when combined with neuromuscular blockade...
Postoperative sore throat (POST) is a common problem following the use of endotracheal intubation during general anaesthesia. It leads to dissatisfaction and discomfort after surgery and c...
The usefulness of videolaryngoscope has been verified by several studies, and the frequency of videolaryngoscopy is increasing in clinical practice. Data on the use of videolaryngoscopes, ...
Patients admitted to Intensive Care Units (ICU) often require respiratory support. Orotracheal intubation is one of the most frequent procedures performed in ICU.When performed in emergenc...
In difficult airway situation, fiberoptic-guided endotracheal intubation through laryngeal mask airway(LMA) is one of option. Aintree catheter is a device to help change LMA to endotrachea...
It has been shown that videolaryngoscopy may be superior to direct laryngoscopy for endotracheal intubation in intensive care. Recently, an endotracheal tube with an integrated camera at i...
Use or insertion of a tubular device into a duct, blood vessel, hollow organ, or body cavity for injecting or withdrawing fluids for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. It differs from INTUBATION in that the tube here is used to restore or maintain patency in obstructions.
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.
Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the device that results in a serious risk to public health.
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.
Dentistry is the study, management and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, teeth and their supporting tissues (Oxford Medical Dictionary) The work of a dentist ranges from regular patient check-up to orthodontics and surgery....
