A prospective Observationalstudie to analyze the current significance of the awake flexible endoscopy in German hospitals.
The aim of the study is to analyze the current significance of the awake flexible endoscopy in German hospitals, to identify strategies to securing the airway in patients with a anticipated difficult airway. The participants complete a pre-prepared questionnaire.

The incidence of difficult airway in paediatric population is up-to date not well described. Difficult airway is connected with significant airway-related morbidity and mortality. The majo...
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...
In the current study researchers aim to evaluate the rate of the complication due to airway mangement (during intubation or placement of supraglottic airway devices)
Obese patients may have difficulty in airway management.Patients who have body mass index > 35 are challenging patients for anesthesiologist. Short neck, more adipose tissue may be reasons...
This article reviews the key considerations when managing a patient with a difficult airway. The difficult airway may be anticipated from preassessment allowing time for investigations and preparation...
Airway management is a cornerstone of anesthetic practice, and difficulty with airway management has potentially grave implications-failure to secure a patent airway can result in hypoxic brain injury...
Difficult airway management is closely related to the safety and quality of medical care. However, the low incidence of correct prediction of difficult airway in clinical screening tests presents phys...
Airway management in patients with Moebius syndrome can be difficult due to the presence of orofacial malformations. This paper aims to present our institution's experience in the evaluation and manag...
Difficult or failed intubation is a major contributor to morbidity for patients and liability for anesthesiologists.Updated difficult airway management guidelines and incorporation of new airway devic...
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).
Evaluation, planning, and use of a range of procedures and airway devices for the maintenance or restoration of a patient's ventilation.
The structural changes in the number, mass, size and/or composition of the airway tissues.
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 technique of respiratory therapy, in either spontaneously breathing or mechanically ventilated patients, in which airway pressure is maintained above atmospheric pressure throughout the respiratory cycle by pressurization of the ventilatory circuit.
