In this study, changes in the position of the endotracheal tube tip during extension of the head and neck for a tracheotomy were investigated. Twelve patients underwent placement of a tracheotomy during surgical procedures for oral cancer. After nasal intubation, the distance between the tube tip and the carina was measuring using a fiberoptic scope with the patient's head placed at an angle of 110°. Patients were repositioned for tracheotomy by placing a pillow under the shoulders and extending the head and neck at an angle of 140°. The distance measurements were subsequently repeated. The difference between the f...

Abstract Smoke inhalation injury (SII) affects more than 50,000 people annually causing carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Although the increased blood level of carboxyhemoglobin (CO-Hb) is frequently used to confirm the diagnosis of SII, knowledge of its elimination in the acute phase is still limited. The aim of this study is to determine CO-Hb elimination rates and their differences in arterial (aCO-Hb) and mixed-venous (vCO-Hb) blood following severe SII in a clinically relevant ovine model. Forty-three chronically instrumented female sheep were subjected to SII (12 breaths, 4 sets) through tracheostomy tube unde...

This condition develops as a consequence of deficient nutrition. It is acquired by children between the ages of 1 and 7, and the children who contract it can die from sepsis within 2 weeks. The estimated mortality rate is in the range of 85%. The survivors have disfigurements of the face, massive scarring, open access to the...

Authors: Strieth S, Hagemann J, Hess M Abstract Transoral laser microsurgery (TLM) for treatment of laryngeal cancer has reduced temporary tracheotomies, increased organ preservation rates, and improved functional results. Gold standard for laser-based transoral resection of laryngeal cancer is the application of CO2 lasers. Oncologically safe radical resection and postoperative voice outcome must be weighed up individually. Angiolytic laser effects enable modification of the tumor micromilieu by targeted obliteration of microvessels and antagonization of angiogenesis with preservation of vibrating laryngeal tissue...
