We report a case of difficult endotracheal intubation in a patient with Treacher Collins syndrome. A sixteen-year-old female patient scheduled for general anesthesia had a displaced palatal tooth that interfered with laryngoscope insertion into the pharyngeal space. To address this problem, we successfully performed endotracheal intubation using a fiberscope while elevating the epiglottic vallecula using a King Vision™ video laryngoscope. A later operation was performed after tooth extraction without difficult laryngoscopy. Our experience stresses the importance of removing obstructions to laryngoscopic inspection pr...

Objectives: Severe hypoxemia is the most common serious adverse event during endotracheal intubation. Preoxygenation is performed routinely as a preventive measure. The relative efficacy of the various available preoxygenation devices is unclear. Here, our objective was to assess associations between preoxygenation devices and pulse oximetry values during endotracheal intubation. Design: Post hoc analysis of data from a multicenter randomized controlled superiority trial (McGrath Mac Videolaryngoscope Versus Macintosh Laryngoscope [MACMAN]) comparing videolaryngoscopy to Macintosh laryngoscopy for endotracheal intubat...

We read with great interest the article by Okamoto et al. who compared the tracheal intubation performance between video laryngoscopy (VL) and direct laryngoscopy (DL) in 3,360 patients with cardiac arrest in the emergency department (ED)1. Compared to DL, the authors of that study reported that the use of VL to facilitate tracheal intubation would lead to a higher success rate of first intubation attempt (70% vs. 78%, respectively; P

We report a novel technique for the management of subglottic stenosis in a neonate. The initial endotracheal intubation did not provide adequate mechanical ventilation due to a significant air leak. We then performed suspension laryngoscopy and used a metal suction tube as an intubating stylet. We successfully inserted an endotracheal tube deep enough to maintain adequate mechanical ventilation. This technique is a viable rescue strategy in this clinical scenario.

Tracheal intubation with the patient in the lateral position is difficult because the laryngeal view is compromised during direct laryngoscopy. Flexible video endoscopes may facilitate intubation even when lar...

ConclusionsAs educational decisions are increasingly required to be evidence-based, this study represents a structured approach to identifying procedures for simulation-based training in ORL. This information can be valuable in the development and implementation of simulation-based training programmes in the ORL residency training curriculum.

na JM Abstract BACKGROUND: Tracheal intubation failure in patients with difficult airway is still not uncommon. While videolaryngoscopes such as the Glidescope offer better glottic vision due to an acute-angled blade, this advantage does not always lead to an increased success rate because successful insertion of the tube through the vocal cords may be the limiting factor. We hypothesize that combined use of Glidescope and fiberscope used only as a dynamic guide facilitates tracheal intubation compared to a conventional Glidescope technique with a preshaped nondynamic stylet. METHODS: One hundred sixty adult ...

CONCLUSION:: From a medical-legal standpoint, although lingual nerve injury is not a life-threatening complication, it is important to inform patients, especially those expected to undergo long-duration surgery. PMID: 30841712 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
