to investigate the effectiveness of techniques of either using Mgill forceps or cuff inflation in facilitation of nasotracheal tube advancement into trachea


Patients who undergo oxo-maxillofacial surgery need naso-tracheal intubation to present good surgical view-field. but, sometimes, the naso-tracheal tube is unable to advance from nasopharynx, oropharynx, into trachea without assistance. Using techniques of either Magill forceps or cuff inflation is advantageous is not determined.

Cuff Inflation-supplemented Videoscope-guided Nasal Intubation

Epistaxis or post-pharyngeal bleeding is the most common complication after nasotracheal intubation (NTI). Prior thermal softening of the endotracheal tube (ET) has been recommended as one...

Video vs. Direct Laryngoscopy in Pediatric Nasal Intubation

Nasal intubation is frequently used for dental procedures to promote an unimpeded view of the oral cavity. A nasal RAE endotracheal tube is longer than a standard oral endotracheal tube (E...

Evaluation on the Proper Size of the Nasotracheal Tube and Depth in Nasotracheal Intubation: a Preliminary Study

The nasotracheal intubation is preferred for oral surgery; it provides an easier view of the surgical field. However, nasotracheal tubes are produced by foreign countries. Tubes are often ...

Which Nostril Should be Used for Nasotracheal Intubation With Airtraq NT®: the Right or Left? A Randomized Clinical Trial

Is Tube Thermosoftening Helpful for Videolaryngoscope-Guided Nasotracheal Intubation?: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

Thermosoftening of the endotracheal tube (ETT) and telescoping the ETT into a rubber catheter have been suggested as a method for reducing epistaxis during nasotracheal intubation (NTI). However, ther...

Videolaryngoscopy versus direct laryngoscopy for nasotracheal intubation: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials.

Nasotracheal intubation (NTI) is a common practice in the oral and maxillofacial surgeries. A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed to determine whether videolaryngoscopy (VL) compared wit...

A novel minimally-occlusive cuff method utilizing ultrasound vascular imaging for stress-free blood pressure measurement: a-proof-of-concept study.

Occlusive cuff inflation in ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring disturbs the daily life of the user, and affects efficacy of monitoring. To overcome this limitation, we have developed a novel mi...

Simultaneous orthognathic surgery and rhinoplasty under nasotracheal intubation.

Subglottic perioperative airway - tube inflation via randomized evaluation with variable syringe size (spair-tire) study.

Risks of endotracheal tube cuff (ETTC) over inflation must be balanced with the need to achieve a minimum pressure of 20 cmH O. Methods have been developed to estimate adequate ETTC pressurization but...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Syndromes and Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed)
