[Statement of the Austrian Society for Anesthesiology, Resuscitation and Intensive Care Medicine (ÖGARI) on the use of laryngeal tubes by ambulancemen and paramedics]. Anaesthesist. 2019 May 21;: Authors: Trimmel H, Halmich M, Paal P Abstract Due to an increasing number of severe complications reported during the prehospital application of laryngeal tubes, the Austrian Society for Anesthesiology, Resuscitation and Intensive Care Medicine (ÖGARI) is prompted to formulate a respective statement. With regard to the current training situation and the applicable laws, ÖGARI recommends t...

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...

Abstract BACKGROUND: In patients who undergo surgery for oropharyngeal masses, intubation is almost always successful. However, technical aspects of airway management, including bag mask ventilation and oxygenation, may still be difficult. Although rates of airway difficulty and intubation success in these patients have been studied, these data may not reflect difficulty with individual components of the intubation process. We hypothesized that rates of complications with individual elements of the intubation process would not be reflected in the rate of eventual intubation success. To test our hypothesis, we obse...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Detailed reviews of closed malpractice claims have provided insights into the most common events resulting in litigation and helped improve anesthesia care. In the past 10 years, there have been multiple safety advancements in the practice of obstetric anesthesia. We investigated the relationship among contributing factors, patient injuries, and legal outcome by analyzing a contemporary cohort of closed malpractice claims where obstetric anesthesiology was the principal defendant. METHODS: The Controlled Risk Insurance Company (CRICO) is the captive medical liability insurer of the Harvar...

ConclusionsA 3 h procedural simulation training for difficult airway management did not improve the frequency of use of devices at 6 months by residents. However, other positive effects suggest exploring the best ratio of time/acquisition efficiency with difficult airway management simulation.ClinicalTrials.gov IdentifierNCT02470195.ResumoJustificativa e objetivosO treinamento em simulação de procedimentos para o manejo de via aérea difícil oferece oportunidades de aprendizagem. A hipótese foi que um treinamento em simulação de procedimentos de três horas, para o ...

Although rare, cannot intubate and cannot oxygenate situations are challenging acute events. The development of management algorithms, standardized equipment provisions, and appropriate clinical training in the application of front-of-neck access techniques are necessary to optimize procedural success to ensure adequate oxygenation. The OxyTain algorithm is an institutionally developed protocol to manage cannot intubate and cannot oxygenate events. With proper implementation, this unique process aligning the cannula cricothyroidotomy and scalpel bougie as primary and secondary techniques, respectively, can potentially opti...

In 2018, Blamforth et al. reported the use of supraglottic airway devices (SAD) with transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in patients undergoing atrial fibrillation ablation procedures as an alternative to endotracheal intubation.1 A few other authors also have described alternative airway management techniques consisting of combined oral placement of a first-generation SAD and a TEE probe. However, the overall success rates of these techniques are questionable because they rely entirely on favorable buccal anatomy of the patient.
