Difficult airway is a major reason of anesthesia related injuries with latent life threatening complications. Foresee difficult airway in the preoperative period is vital for the patient's...
Supraglottic airway tools, one of the tools used in the management of the difficult airway. American Society of Anesthesiologists and the Difficult Airway Society of the United Kingdom air...
The aim of this study to assess and compare between methods of prediction of difficult airway including Mallmpati score , thyromental distance and us measured distance from skin to epiglot...
Mallampati score > 3 generally indicate difficult airway and difficult intubation. Most anesthesiologist usually use this score system to predict difficult airway management. Different lar...
This is a non-human study, conducted in a simulation environment, with simulator manikins, and volunteers from anaesthesia. Trainees in their first 2 years of anaesthetics training will be...
The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) difficult airway algorithm and the Vortex approach are difficult airway aids. Our objective was to demonstrate that a simpler cognitive model would faci...
Recognizing patients in whom endotracheal intubation is likely to be difficult can help alert physicians to the need for assistance from a clinician with airway training and having advanced airway man...
Airway management is a major competence of clinical anesthesia. Knowledge of available materials and skills in the use of specific methods and techniques are essential and should be trained routinely....
The prevalence of obesity in the UK is increasing. Airway management in the obese patient can be challenging. Face mask ventilation is frequently difficult, and while the incidence of difficult laryng...
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).
A congenital or acquired condition of underdeveloped or degeneration of CARTILAGE in the TRACHEA and the BRONCHI. This results in a floppy non-rigid airway making patency difficult to maintain.
The structural changes in the number, mass, size and/or composition of the airway tissues.
A congenital or acquired condition of underdeveloped or degeneration of CARTILAGE in the TRACHEA. This results in a floppy tracheal wall making patency difficult to maintain. It is characterized by wheezing and difficult breathing.
