Between the devil and the deep red sea: Airway trauma during introducer-guided difficult intubation
Publication date: Available online 11 April 2019Source: Trends in Anaesthesia and Critical CareAuthor(s): Shreya Agarwal, Preeti GuptaAbstractA 46-year-old woman was scheduled for total thyroidectomy and had modified Mallampati class III airway. After anaesthesia was induced, laryngoscopy revealed Cormack–Lehane grade 3a view of the vocal cords with external laryngeal manipulation. A Portex single-use tracheal tube introducer was first introduced up to 27 cm mark, after eliciting the tracheal click and hold-up signs. A Portex tracheal tube size 7 mm ID was railroaded over the introducer with some difficulty becau...

Physiopathological rationale of using high-flow nasal therapy in the acute and chronic setting: a narrative review
Publication date: Available online 21 February 2019Source: Trends in Anaesthesia and Critical CareAuthor(s): Giulia Spoletini, Andrea Cortegiani A, Cesare Gregoretti CAbstractChronic lung disease and admissions due to acute respiratory failure (ARF) are becoming increasingly common. Consequently, there is a growing focus on optimizing respiratory support, particularly non-invasive respiratory support, to manage these conditions. High flow nasal therapy (HFNT) is a noninvasive technique where humidified and heated gas is delivered through the nose to the airways via small dedicated nasal prongs at flows that are higher than...
