We previously have shown that there was a strong correlation between failed facemask ventilation, failed ventilation through a supraglottic airway, and difficult tracheal intubation. The primary aim of this study was to evaluate whether or not an established method to predict difficult ventilation through a supraglottic airway was also useful for predicting failed facemask ventilation.

Failed intubation and ventilation during cesarean deliveries are important causes of anesthetic-related maternal mortality. Due to the physiological changes in airway anatomy, parturient had higher in...
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...
Supraglottic Superimposed High Frequency Jet Ventilation (SSHFJV) maximizes surgical field during endoscopic upper airway surgery. In our retrospective series of 224 cases, there was a low incidence (...
Infants and children undergoing craniofacial surgery may present with a wide range of diseases and conditions posing an array of challenges to the anesthesiologist. Optimal perioperative care requires...
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...
This study looks to devise a scoring system that can be used to predict difficult front of neck access due to increased depth of cricothyroid membrane. This study will recruit elective pat...
This study was designed to assess the success of indirect laryngoscopy and ultrasonographic measurements in the prediction of difficult airway. All patients were examined by indirect laryn...
Nasotracheal intubation(NTI) is commonly used in operations of the mouth, pharynx, larynx and also the neck. While these patients showed higher rates of difficult laryngoscopy. Therefore, ...
The Articulating Oral Airway (AOA) is a novel oral airway which actively displaces the tongue, allowing for a greater cross-sectional area for mask ventilation. We hypothesize that, in pat...
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.
Evaluation, planning, and use of a range of procedures and airway devices for the maintenance or restoration of a patient's ventilation.
Ventilatory support system using frequencies from 60-900 cycles/min or more. Three types of systems have been distinguished on the basis of rates, volumes, and the system used. They are high frequency positive-pressure ventilation (HFPPV); HIGH-FREQUENCY JET VENTILATION; (HFJV); and high-frequency oscillation (HFO).
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).
Respiratory support system used primarily with rates of about 100 to 200/min with volumes of from about one to three times predicted anatomic dead space. Used to treat respiratory failure and maintain ventilation under severe circumstances.
