SGA vs ETT During Interventional Pulmonary Procedures SGA vs ETT During Interventional Pulmonary Procedures
What is the optimal airway management for patients undergoing interventional pulmonary procedures under general anesthesia?BMC Anesthesiology
This article attempts to briefly outline the role of ultrasound and its applications for airway management in patients.
Conclusion: Unique design of the Parker Flex-tip TT resulted in increase in success rate, first attempt success rate and ease of intubation in group B in present study.

The management of obstetric patients, who are admitted to a general intensive care unit, can often be accompanied by a fair share of apprehension owing to the intricacy of care. Rather than discussing common obstetric emergencies and their management, we would like to call attention to bas...
ConclusionKnowledge about tracheal bronchus is of great importance to the otolaryngologist and anesthetist to maintain the airway.
We report a case of a monolingual Arabic-speaking patient with a difficult airway who required awake intubation to undergo surgery. Google Translate, a free and accessible translation software application, was used during his awake intubation—we recommend such an approach to be considered to reduce anxiety and facilitate success by providing concise, real-time instruction in the patient’s preferred language.
We report the case of a pregnant patient diagnosed with Cockayne Syndrome, submitted successfully to spinal anesthesia for a cesarean section due to cephalopelvic disproportion. In view of the difficult decision between inducing general anesthesia in a patient with a likely difficult airway, or neuraxial anesthesia in a patient with cardiovascular, respiratory and neurocognitive limitations, we suggest tailored management to reach the best results for the mother and newborn.ResumoA síndrome de Cockayne é doença multissistêmica autossômica recessiva devido à falha no reparo do DNA.

Dr Oliver Flower Airway management Adam Rehak provides practical pearls about managing the unexpected difficult airway; emphasising the importance of effective teamwork with the Vortex approach and the DAS guidelines.
CONCLUSION: The level of training in airway management especially for non-anesthetists is inhomogeneous. The recently published German S1 guidelines for prehospital airway management recommend education and training as well as the primary use of the video laryngoscope with Macintosh blade. The implementation could lower the incidence of subjective difficult airways. PMID: 32055885 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
