Stu Marshall on Airway Strategies

Stuart Marshall is an anaesthetist with a PhD in Human Factors and is the Clinical Director of Simulation Education at The Alfred (based at the Australian Centre for Health Innovation). In this FOAM video, created for the Critically Ill Airway (CIA) course, Stu provides an interactive guide to how an airway expert develops a strategies for airway management.CIA airway strategy from Stu Marshall on Vimeo.Feel free to discuss your plans for the scenarios presented in the video. Depending on your context, your plans may be quite different to those described…The next CIA course is December 8th and 9th 2015, registrations are now open. The post Stu Marshall on Airway Strategies appeared first on LITFL.

Indirect laryngoscopes offer promising advantages, but their safety and impact on cervical spine movement is still discussed.AimWe compared the incidence of significant neurophysiologic modifications associated with tracheal intubation performe...

ConclusionSubstantial agreement exists among experts regarding many strong recommendations for the improvement of practice concerning the use of muscle relaxants and reversal agents during anaesthesia. In particular, the French Society of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care (SFAR) recommends the use of a device to monitor neuromuscular blockade throughout anaesthesia.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPoint-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has been widely adopted in the management of trauma patients by emergency and surgical specialists. Advances in technology, portability, and affordability have contributed to its exponential growth, particularly in the field of trauma anesthesia where ultrasound usage has steadfastly blossomed in recent years.Recent FindingsStudies and protocols have expanded beyond the oft-used focused assessment with sonography for trauma examination to include focused cardiac and lung examinations. POCUS may also be useful as an adjunct for airway management, vascular access, and...

Authors: De Cassai A, Boscolo A, Rose K, Carron M, Navalesi P Abstract BACKGROUND: Airway management is a fundamental goal for the anesthesiologist. The rate of difficult laryngoscopy in patients undergoing thyroid surgery ranges from 6.8% to 9.6%. An accurate and detailed preoperative evaluation of the airway seems to be a promising tool to predict a potentially difficult airway management. We aimed to identify possible risk factors and physical findings that predict difficult intubation in thyroid surgery. METHODS: MEDLINE, EMBASE and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) were analysed,...

ConclusionThere is no anatomical relation between otolaryngologic surgery, the hypoglossal nerve and recurrent laryngeal branch of the vagus nerve. This Tapia’s syndrome case is possibly caused by nerve compression of the two nerves due to anaesthesia cannula. Ginkgo leaf extract, methylcobalamin and mouse nerve growth factor could be used as an alternative treatment plan in case of steroid contraindications.

BACKGROUND Tracheal intubation using a double-lumen endobronchial tube (DLT) causes postoperative sore throat. OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of two-handed jaw thrust on postoperative sore throat in patients requiring insertion of a DLT. DESIGN A randomised study. SETTING A tertiary teaching hospital from December 2017 to May 2018. PATIENTS One-hundred and six patients undergoing one-lung anaesthesia. INTERVENTIONS Patients were allocated to one of two groups (n=53 each). In the jaw thrust group, the two-handed jaw thrust manoeuvre was applied at intubation and advancement of the DLT. In the control gro...
