AbstractBackgroundRisk factors for advanced airway intervention among patients with dentofacial infection (DFI) are poorly understood. The appropriate delivery of clinical care to this patient group raises challenging anaesthetic service provision issues. The purpose of this study was to identify factors which may predict a requirement for an awake fibre optic intubation (AFOI) technique for airway management in this patient population.MethodsA retrospective analysis of data for consecutive patients admitted with DFI were analysed at the Oral&Maxillofacial department at St James ’s Hospital, Dublin from July 2014...

Emergent airway management outside of the operating room is a high-risk procedure. Limited data exists about the indication and physiologic state of the patient at the time of intubation, the location in which...

Publication date: Available online 29 November 2019Source: Anaesthesia &Intensive Care MedicineAuthor(s): Barry McGuire, Kimberley HodgeAbstractTracheal intubation is the act of placing a tube into the trachea. The tube enables oxygen delivery and removal of carbon dioxide, while also allowing for the administration of pharmacological agents. Intubation is the most reliable method of maintaining an airway under anaesthesia, and for protection against aspiration of stomach contents. Traditionally, intubation is achieved by direct visualization of the glottis, but now indirect laryngoscopy (via a videolaryngoscope) is a ...

Airway surgery poses a host of unique challenges to both the surgical and anesthesiology teams. Accordingly, there are a variety of surgical, anesthetic, and airway management options to be strategically considered. Management can be challenging during multidisciplinary preoperative planning, during the surgical procedure itself, and during recovery. In this review, emphasis is placed on anesthesia challenges for patients undergoing major tracheal or carinal surgery with specific considerations related to perioperative management.

We report successful anaesthetic management of an accidental traumatic rupture of the left main bronchus during surgical dissection in an elderly lady of Carcinoma Oesophagus who underwent a Video Assisted Thoracoscopic surgery (VATS), and was managed by one lung ventilation of the contralateral (right) side manipulating the same DLT and lung protective ventilation.

The rate of caesarean delivery (CD) has tripled in the last three decades.1 Most CD are performed under regional anaesthesia because of its various advantages: better parental experience associated with the delivery; avoidance of exposure to general anaesthetic agents that have a risk of causing anaphylaxis and uterine atony; avoidance of intraoperative awareness; and reduced mortality.2 Importantly, regional anaesthesia avoids or minimizes the risks of airway management and its associated complications such as failed intubation, oesophageal intubation and aspiration.

Conclusionsinstrumental measurements highlight that SLMA offers the advantage of less resistance to the airflow, allowing to keep lower oropharyngeal leak pressure during mechanical ventilation. Despite the differences reported, we observed only a few minor complications in both groups.
