This study compares the SALAD and IEI techniques with the tr aditional approach of ad hoc, rigid suction catheter airway decontamination and endotracheal intubation in the setting of massive simulated emesis.Methods: Senior anesthesiology and emergency medicine (EM) residents were randomized into three...

CONCLUSIONS: A 3h 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 IDENTIFIER: NCT02470195.

AthanassoglouAbstractBackgroundAwake fibre-optic intubation (AFOI) is a recommended option for managing the anticipated difficult intubation; however, there is no recommended standard technique. We investigated current practice of AFOI among Difficult Airway Society members.MethodsA survey was distributed to members of the Difficult Airway Society (DAS). Questions focussed on technique, complications and caseload within the previous 2 years.ResultsOf 588 respondents, most (313; 5...

Most airway management is done in the supine position, but some situations may require airway management in the lateral position. Most emergency physicians and anesthesiologists are not comfortable with intubation in the lateral position.

This study aimed to evaluate the anesthetic management of patients undergoing surgical resection for rhino-orbito-cerebral mucormycosis (ROC).The study evaluated 12 patients that underwent surgical resection for ROC mucormycosis under general anesthesia. Demographic characteristics, hemodynamic parameters, invasive monitoring methods, surgical procedures, hospital records, and mortality rates were reviewed for each patient.The patients had a median age of 58 (range, 5-86) years. Two patients had an American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) score of II while the remaining 10 patients had a score of III. Eleven (91.7%) pat...

CONCLUSION: In an unfixed human cadaver model with combined atlanto-occipital dislocation and atlanto-axial instability, placement of the LTS-D caused less reduction in the width of the dural sac than conventional intubation at the level of the craniocervical junction. The LTS-D also caused less angulation and could be placed faster. It could therefore also be advantageous over conventional intubation in living patients with an unstable cervical spine.

Conclusion: Both GVL and CMAC-D with MIAS are equally efficacious in tracheal intubation in cervical spine injury/pathology patients without other difficult airway management criteria.

Authors: Fabich RA, Franklin BT, Langan N Abstract Maxillofacial and neck trauma from penetrating injuries present unique challenges for anesthesia providers and surgeons. In the austere conditions of a combat setting these challenges may be amplified due to limited resources and injury severity. Currently there is a lack of evidence and consensus on how to best manage a traumatized airway in this situation. The authors of this paper present the successful emergency management of a traumatized airway from a severe maxillofacial and neck-penetrating wound. A stepwise team approach using strong communication and a gl...
