Testing of novel spectral device sensor in swine model of airway obstruction

This study validated a model of slow ‐ and rapid‐airway obstruction that results in significant hypoxia and hypercapnia. This is valuable for future testing of airway device components that may improve airway management. Additionally, our data support the ability of spectral reflectance to differentiate between tracheal and esophag eal tissues in the presence of a clinical condition that decreases oxygen saturation.

(Anesth Analg. 2019;128(3):584–586. Doi:10.1213/ANE.0000000000003886) While video laryngoscopy (VL) has brought substantial changes to the practice of airway management, the way anesthesiologists define a “difficult intubation” has not been altered accordingly. The American Society of Anesthesiologists has defined a “difficult airway” as “the clinical situation in which a conventionally trained anesthesiologist experiences difficulty with facemask ventilation of the upper airway, difficulty with intubation, or both,” and also has set forth clear, separate definitions of difficult ...

CONCLUSIONS: We showed that a folded towel placed under the shoulders in children younger than two years of age improves glottis visualization, reduces time to intubation and provides ease of use of the C-MAC Miller Video Laryngoscope. Therefore, we think that the placement of a folded towel under the shoulders during the use of a C-MAC Miller Video Laryngoscope may be useful for airway management in children younger than two years of age.

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...

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.
