Rigorously Maintaining a “Targeted Depth of Insertion” for an Airway Exchange Catheter During Tracheal Tube Exchange

INDWELLING TRACHEAL tubes may need to be changed for a wide variety of physical or functional defects. For example, physical defects that require tube exchange include a failed sealing system (sticking pilot line 1-way valve, hole in pilot balloon or tube cuff) and defects in tube length and patency. Functional reasons that require exchange include the tube being too small for fiberoptic bronchoscopy and/or optimal ventilation and selective lung ventilation requiring a single-lumen to double-lumen tube exchange.

Abstract Tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica is a rare benign condition where multiple cartilaginous or bony submucosal nodules project into the trachea or bronchi. A 71-year-old man complained of cough for 3 months. Computed tomography scanning revealed a calcified tracheal tumor near the tracheal bifurcation. Pulmonary function testing indicated airflow limitation, and bronchoscopic examination confirmed a solitary rigid tumor. Bronchoscopic resection was performed under general anesthesia, and the tumor was detached by cauterizing its stem with high-frequency coagulation. The tumor was pathologically indi...

Conclusions: DLT has a low malpositioning rate and is the preferred device to achieve OLV. BRO use recorded was unexpectedly low. The possibility of encountering a difficult airway is frequent, with an overall prevalence of 16%. Risk factors of desaturation are malposition and increased size of DLT. Left procedures and BRO use could lead to fewer episodes of desaturation. PMID: 31559028 [PubMed]
