FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 5, 2019 Oral health takes center stage in Music City this November as Carestream Dental opens registration for its 2019 Global Oral Health Summit. At the Summit, every attendee is a star as they learn how to “Power the Performance of Your Practice” from trainers, industry leaders and Carestream Dental designers and developers. The band ’s all here. From Nov. 7-9, 2019, in Nashville, Tenn., at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, hundreds of doctors, office managers, assistants and hygienists from across all specialties will learn more about combining their practice management software and equipment as a perfect duet to change patients’ lives. The set list naturally includes hands-on training for CS OrthoTrac, CS PracticeWorks, CS SoftDent and CS WinOMS users, and topics such as working in a cloud environment and using their software for revenue cycle management. However, sessions also cover industry trends that would appeal to all oral healthcare professionals —regardless as to whether they’re Carestream Dental customers—such as optimizing social media and mastering patient engagement. Specialty education tracks will also address trends specific to each field, such as implant guided surgery, restorative optimization with a mill, airway management and mastering 3D printing.“We’re not just singing the same old tune; you’ll never attend the same Summit twice,” Greg Marko, ...

An ALS unit is dispatched for an adult patient complaining of severe painful swallowing and difficulty breathing. Upon arrival the patient is acutely decompensating with increasing respiratory effort and diminished color. Supplemental oxygen isn’t providing adequate perfusion. Due to the patient’s rapidly deteriorating condition, the decision is made to intubate. As the laryngoscope is slid beyond the oral cavity, severe epiglottic swelling is visualized. After one intubation attempt the swelling worsens. At this point, endotracheal intubation is not feasible. With no options left, the paramedic resorts to reac...

We present a case series of five patients with inhalational burns who presented to Singapore General Hospital and discuss our approach to their early management, including early evaluation and planning for the upper and lower airway, coexisting cutaneous burns, and monitoring their ICU (intensive care unit) severity of illness, sepsis and acute respiratory distress syndrome. All five patients suffered various grades of inhalation injury. The patients were initially assessed by nasolaryngoscopy, and three patients were prophylactically intubated before being sent to the emergency operating theatre for definitive airway and ...

Authors: Dowdy RAE, Emam HA, Cornelius BW Abstract Ludwig's angina (LA) is a gangrenous cellulitis of the neck that spreads via continuity of the fascial planes. Treatment of LA includes aggressive antibiotic therapy as well as surgical drainage in many cases. The most common cause of infection is odontogenic and can be due to both aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. Signs and symptoms of LA include bilateral cervical swelling, dysphagia, drooling, neck tenderness, elevation and posterior distension of the tongue, restricted neck movement, trismus, dyspnea, and stridor, which can result in difficult airway management. ...

CONCLUSION The prospective observational study confirms the relationship between ultrasound assessment of the anterior soft tissues of the neck and difficult laryngoscopy and DMV. DSHB and the other distances extend the available evidence, not only for difficult laryngoscopy but also for DMV. TRIAL REGISTRATION Clinicaltrials.gov. identified NCT03592758.

CONCLUSION Participants had difficulties in performing cricothyroidotomy in obese models, but various and difficult anatomical situations must be expected in airway management and therefore must be taught. A new hybrid model combining porcine and synthetic materials offers the necessary conditions for the next step in training of surgical airway procedures. TRIAL REGISTRATION The study was performed without human tissue or living animals, and was therefore exempted from ethical review by the University of Ulm Ethical Committee, Germany (Chairperson Prof Dr C. Lenk) on 9 August 2018. Hence a protocol number was not attributed.

CONCLUSION Patients with a nonshockable out-of-hospital cardiac arrest who presented with higher values of initial ETCO2 had an increased chance of sustained ROSC and survival. This finding could help decision making as regards continuation of resuscitation efforts.

It is important that clinicians understand the patient profiles associated with difficult airway management, and the equipment and techniques available to effectively manage these children. The goal of this focused review is to highlight key airway management concepts when managing the paediatric difficult airway. This includes understanding the advantages and limitations of various ai...

Early-onset pneumonia, diagnosed within 4 days of initiating mechanical ventilation, occurs in up to 63% of resuscitated patients.1 Pneumonia after cardiac arrest is due to aspiration of gastric contents during cardiopulmonary resuscitation or to introduction of oropharyngeal flora into the lungs during airway management.2 The risk is increased by post-resuscitation immune paralysis, intestinal mucosal disruption due to ischemic-reperfusion injury, pulmonary contusions, and chest wall dysfunction from rib and sternal fractures.

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.
