Ear, nose and throat emergencies
Abstract: An airway emergency, including any lesion causing upper airway compromise, is potentially life-threatening in both adults and children. Stridor, acute epiglottitis, inhaled foreign body and bleeding tonsils, all require a prompt, methodical approach. Clear communication and cooperation between anaesthetic and surgical teams is vital.

Percutaneous tracheostomy and cricothyrotomy techniques
Abstract: Percutaneous tracheostomy is currently accepted as a standard technique for longer-term airway care in the critically ill patients in many intensive care units (ICUs). Early tracheostomy has not shown any survival benefit compared to late tracheostomy following prolonged tracheal intubation in ICU patients. The main indications for tracheostomy in the ICU setting include weaning from artificial ventilation or airway protection. Nevertheless, many questions about choice of techniques, post-tracheostomy care and decannulation remain unanswered. This review gives an overview of current techniques. (Source: Anaesthes...

Histamine and antihistamines
Abstract: Histamine is one of the most extensively studied biological amines in medicine. It stimulates smooth muscle contraction and gastric acid secretion, increases vascular permeability, functions as a neurotransmitter, and plays various roles in immunomodulation, allergy, inflammation, haematopoiesis and cell proliferation. Histamine exerts its effects through four receptors, designated H1–H4. H1 and H2 receptors are widely distributed, H3 receptors are mainly presynaptic, and H4 receptors are mainly haematopoietic. H1 antihistamines are classified as first- and second-generation compounds. First-generation comp...

Alternative techniques for tracheal intubation
Abstract: Alternative rigid blade intubation devices available in recent years include the Glidescope, Airtraq and Bonfils laryngoscopes. The Macintosh blade works by displacing the tongue to one side and into the submandibular space while the tip of the device sits in the vallecula lifting the hyoid and so the epiglottis forward to reveal the laryngeal inlet. Under less favourable intubating conditions, the tongue is not accommodated in the submandibular space and tends to be compressed downwards. As a result the vallecula is not accessible and the blade tip is less able to be drawn forward. The retro-molar Bonfils avoids...
