OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine the sensitivity and specificity of various anatomic measurements alone or in combination in predicting difficult intubation. The investigators hypo...
Aim of our study is to evaluate the predictive value of ultrasonographic (USG) measurement of thyrohyoid distance for difficult intubation and determination of optimal endotracheal tube si...
The use of videolarygoscopy (VL) as first choice for tracheal intubation versus direct laryngoscopy (DL) is a matter of debate. These two methods were compared in several studies. Videolar...

The study aims to establish which of the two second generation Supraglottic Airway Devices, the I-gel or the the laryngeal ask airway (LMA) Protector, is best suited to be used as a condui...
Predicting difficult intubation is of high clinical interest.
An airway manager's primary objective is to provide a path to oxygenation. This can be achieved by means of a facemask, a supraglottic airway, or a tracheal tube. If one method fails, an alternative a...
Endotracheal intubation (ETI) is a crucial life-saving procedure, where more than 2 failed attempts can lead to further complications or even death. Like all technical skills, ETI requires sufficient ...
Upper airway obstruction during anesthesia is the leading cause of complications during sedation, intubation, and emergence. Devices to support oxygenation and ventilation are costly, require capital ...
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.
A congenital or acquired condition of underdeveloped or degeneration of CARTILAGE in the BRONCHI. This results in a floppy bronchial wall making patency difficult to maintain. It is characterized by wheezing and difficult breathing.
Techniques for administering artificial respiration without the need for INTRATRACHEAL INTUBATION.
A procedure involving placement of a tube into the trachea through the mouth or nose in order to provide a patient with oxygen and anesthesia.
The insertion of a tube into the stomach, intestines, or other portion of the gastrointestinal tract to allow for the passage of food products, etc.
