Paratracheal Esophagus Pressure on the Intubation With Pentax Airway Scope

Recently, left paratracheal pressure was introduced as an alternative method to prevent pulmonary aspiration instead of cricoid pressure. Criocoid pressure is known to worsen glottic visib...

The Effect of Paratracheal Pressure on the Glottic View

Paratracheal pressure may have a role in the prevention of pulmonary aspiration. The effects of paratracheal pressure on glottic view, ease of facemask ventilation, or tracheal intubation ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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 rotational force about an axis that is equal to the product of a force times the distance from the axis where the force is applied.

Abnormally slow pace of regaining CONSCIOUSNESS after general anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, GENERAL) usually given during surgical procedures. This condition is characterized by persistent somnolence.

Condition in which no acceleration, whether due to gravity or any other force, can be detected by an observer within a system. It also means the absence of weight or the absence of the force of gravity acting on a body. Microgravity, gravitational force between 0 and 10 -6 g, is included here. (From NASA Thesaurus, 1988)
