Experience With the Use of Single-Use Disposable Bronchoscope in the ICU in a Tertiary Referral Center of Singapore

Conclusions: SB is equivalent in performance to CB in ICU. In addition, the SB may confer clinical, economic, and logistical advantages over the CB.

ConclusionsSlide tracheoplasty and tracheal resection are effective operative strategies for infants and children with tracheal stenosis including patients with lung agenesis/hypoplasia. We recommend simultaneous repair of intracardiac anomalies and pulmonary artery sling.

Rationale: Precise lung isolation technique with visual confirmation is essential for thoracic surgeries to create a safe and clear surgical field. However, in certain situations, such as when patients have massive pulmonary secretion or when the fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FOB) is not applicable, lung isolation has been performed blindly. Patient concern: A 52-year-old woman, whose airway was unable to visualize with FOB due to massive pulmonary secretion, was presented for bilateral sequential lung transplantation. Extracorporeal membranous oxygenation, tracheostomy, and mechanical ventilation were applied to the patie...

ConclusionNasotracheal intubation using fiberoptic bronchoscopy is the most preferred technique for the management of a difficult airway. Efficient airway management during the perioperative period significantly reduces the post-operative length of hospital stay and morbidity.

AbstractPurposeThe purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate perioperative risk factors concerning difficult airway management, primary tracheostomy, and need for intensive care unit (ICU) admission in severe odontogenic space infections.MethodsPerioperative risk factors were retrospectively analyzed in 499 cases. Fisher ’s exact test and analysis of variance were performed to analyze associations between categorical and continuous variables. Univariate regression analysis was used for estimating predictors for ICU admission. A risk model for ICU admission was performed using multivariate regression analysi...
