ConclusionsThe formula by height could be most suitable for the selection of size for pediatric nasotracheal intubation. When the predicted tube size was 5.5 or 6.0-mm ID, 0.5  mm smaller size should be chosen at first. In the case of 4.0-mm ID, 0.5 mm larger size should be chosen for first trial.Clinical relevanceThe present data indicate that the selection of nasotracheal tube using the formula by height might be useful.

Conclusions: Old age and radiographic predictors indicating large tongue size (large TA, long alveolar line of the mandible to the hyoid bone and mandible to the hyoid bone) were associated with an increased rate of difficult laryngoscopy in acromegaly patients. Preoperative radiographic measurements of tongue size can be helpful for safe airway management in such patients.

Conclusions: In terms of anesthesia, concurrent use of iMRI for awake craniotomy is clinically acceptable providing potential intraoperative complications can be controlled. Further, the configuration of the iMRI scanner as well as the reduced exposure from the lower magnetic field strength was found to impact patient safety management. Therefore when a conscious patient is left in the gantry without airway support, it is advisable that levels of oxygenation and ventilation should be monitored at all times.

CONCLUSION: The CMAC Miller blade reduced the total time taken for tracheal intubation and intubation difficulty as compared to the Truview Picture Capture Device and may be a better tool for intubation in infants. PMID: 30511796 [PubMed - in process]
