Airway management in severely obese patients remains a challenging issue for anaesthetists and may lead to life-threatening situations. Supraglottic airway devices, such as the i-gel™ or the AuraGain™, were developed, with the possibility to ventilate the patient or use them as a conduit for endotracheal intubation.
The supraglottic airway (SGA) represents an alternative to endotracheal intubation (endotracheal tube [ETT]) in many types of ambulatory surgery. Adoption of the SGA has progressed slowly in sinonasal surgery due to concerns about airway protection. The purpose of this study was to compare quality of life measures and indices of airway protection between patients undergoing sinonasal surgery who were ventilated via an SGA or ETT.
To assess the feasibility of jet ventilation in obese patients and to compare complications of jet ventilation in obese and nonobese patients.
When working in a tactical environment there are several different airway management options that exist. One published manuscript suggests that when compared to endotracheal intubation, the King LT laryngotracheal airway (KA) device minimizes time to successful tube placement and minimizes exposure in a tactical environment. However, comparison of two different blind insertion supraglottic airway devices in a tactical environment has not been performed. This study compared the I-Gel airway (IGA) to the KA i...
It is very rare but challenging to perform emergency airway management for accidental extubation in a patient whose head and neck are fixed in the prone position when urgently turning the patient to the supine position would be unsafe. The authors hypothesized that tracheal intubation with a videolaryngoscope would allow effective airway rescue in this situation compared with a supraglottic airway device and designed a randomized crossover manikin study to test this hypothesis.
Analysis of modern military conflicts suggests that airway compromise remains the second leading cause of preventable death of combat fatalities. This study compares outcomes of combat casualties that received prehospital airway interventions, specifically bag valve mask (BVM) ventilation, cricothyrotomy, and supraglottic airway (SGA) placement. The goal is to compare the effectiveness of airway management strategies used in the military pre-hospital setting.
The self-pressurized air-Q® (air-Q SP) intubating laryngeal airway is a relatively new supraglottic airway (SGA) device. The intracuff pressure of air-Q dynamically equilibrates with the airway pressure and adjusts to the patient's pharyngeal and periglottic anatomy, potentially providing improved airway fit and seal. The aim of this prospective randomized study was to compare the clinical performance of air-Q to the LMA® Classic™ SGA.
Ceftolozane/tazobactam is approved for the treatment of complicated intra-abdominal infection (cIAI) and complicated urinary tract infection (cUTI) with renal function-based dose adjustment. Given that creatinine clearance, body weight and gender are highly correlated in severely/morbidly obese patients, this study investigated whether the approved dosing regimens for ceftolozane/tazobactam are also appropriate in severely/morbidly obese patients based on simulated pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic target att...
Mucus production and hypersecretion are important pathophysiological features of asthma. Airway mucus secretion is more serious in obese asthma. Therefore, it is of great significance to elucidate the mechanism of asthma airway mucus high secretion in improving the control of asthma and the prognosis of obese asthmatic patients.
The supraglottic airway device (SAD) can be used for airway management of spontaneous breathing patients, and propofol is commonly applied for the SAD placement. This study was designed to assess the effect of gender on median target effect-site concentration (Ce) of propofol for I-gel placement when combined with dexmedetomidine.
Severely obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery (BS) are at increased risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE). How standard low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) regimen should be adapted to provide both sufficient efficacy and safety in this setting is unclear. We aimed to compare the influence of four body size descriptors (BSD) on peak anti-Xa levels in BS obese patients receiving LMWH fixed doses to identify which one had the greatest impact. One hundred and thirteen BS obese patients [median body mass...
To compare rates of VTE occurrence in obese versus non-obese hospitalized patients who received UFH 5000 units subcutaneously q8 h.
Difficult airway management in thoracic anesthesia has rarely been addressed in current guidelines. However, difficult airway management may be a challenge in thoracic anaesthesia: Achieving lung separation and collapse in combination of potentially distorted upper airway anatomy (difficult upper airway), the presence of subglottic pathologies (difficult lower airway) and the need for one-lung ventilation (difficult lung separation). This review will focus on identification of patients at risk, recommendati...
Standard treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is nightly application of positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP). However, adherence to CPAP is limited due to side effects and complications, and patients are frequently untreated or undertreated. In this scenario, patients with OSA are at risk of developing comorbidities such as arterial hypertension, coronary artery disease, or diabetes, and are exposed to an increased risk of experiencing traffic or occupational accidents due to daytime sleepiness. Al...
The major complications of paediatric airway management are uncommon, but the outcomes are often severe. Over the last decade, additions and advancements in the devices and technology have significantly improved our ability to manage difficult paediatric airways safely. Videolaryngoscopy involves the use of video and optical technology to facilitate indirect visualisation of the larynx during intubation and has been seen as an evolutionary step in intubation technology. Over the past few years, video laryng...
Video laryngoscopy-assisted tracheal intubation devices have become alternatives to traditional laryngoscopes in recent years. This review will provide information on commonly used video laryngoscopes, and their clinical applications in airway management. Areas covered: In this review, the differences between video laryngoscopy and direct laryngoscopy, and the utilization of video laryngoscopes in specific clinical settings are discussed. Expert Commentary: Video laryngoscopy should be embraced as an initia...
Patients with cleft lip and palate (CLP) have commonly reduced nasal airways and are more prone to snoring, mouth breathing and hypopnea during sleep. Therefore, the morphometric evaluation of pharyngeal airway in patients with CLP is crucial. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the pharyngeal airway volumes of patients with CLP who underwent nasoalveolar molding (NAM) and to compare them with a well-matched control group without NAM. The study consisted of 40 patients with CLP divided into 2 main grou...
Airway stenting has been reported to be useful for patients with malignant airway stenosis as a bridge to tumor-specific therapy, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy, as well as palliative therapy. However, its role in patients with small-cell lung cancer (SCLC), the most aggressive lung cancer subtype, is unclear. We investigated the efficacy of airway stenting for patients with airway stenosis resulting from SCLC.
Considering that specific genetic profiles, psychopathological conditions and neurobiological systems underlie human behaviours, the phenotypic differentiation of obese patients according to eating behaviours should be investigated. The aim of this study was to classify obese patients according to their eating behaviours and to compare these clusters in regard to psychopathology, personality traits, neurocognitive patterns and genetic profiles.
This study investigated the impact of different protocols on radiation dose and image quality for obese patients undergoing abdominal CT examinations.
Airway device placement and maintenance are of utmost importance when managing critically ill patients. The best method to secure airway devices is currently unknown.
Upper airway stimulation has been shown to be an effective treatment for some patients with obstructive sleep apnea. However, the mechanism by which hypoglossal nerve stimulation increases upper airway caliber is not clear. Therefore, the objective of this study was to identify the mechanism of action of upper airway stimulation. We hypothesized that, with upper airway stimulation, responders would show greater airway opening in the retroglossal (base of the tongue) region, greater hyoid movement toward the...
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a multifactorial disease that involves a complex interaction between genetics, diet and lifestyle. Although closely related with obese subjects, it is also common in lean humans. This study aimed to characterize the diet and lifestyle of lean and obese NAFLD patients in Chinese.
