Do videolaryngoscopes have a new role in the SIAARTI difficult airway management algorithm? (3/98)

The rigid standard Macintosh laryngoscope is the instrument used to obtain an adequate view of the larynx in most patients. In cases of unpredicted severe laryngoscopic difficulties, the SIAARTI guidelines suggest waking the patient and using fiberoptic intubation with topical anesthesia. In the last decade, many videolaryngoscopes have been produced and introduced into clinical use. They provide an excellent view of the glottis. Their role in the SIAARTI algorithm for difficult airway management is now better defined. In fact, their use could be suggested in cases of unpredicted severe laryngoscopic difficulty as a step before awakening the patient. Moreover, they could be used in predicted severe intubation difficulty as an alternative to flexible fiberscope.  (+info)

Management of a patient with an unexpected obstructing carinal mass. (5/98)

Surgical procedures involving the airway or for mediastinal masses present considerable challenges for the anesthesiologist. Aside from the obvious technical challenges of providing ventilation, the anesthesiologist must share the airway with the surgeon. Careful and meticulous preoperative evaluation and preparation and intraoperative interaction with the surgical team is critical to assure control of the airway. We report a case of management of a patient with an unexpected near total obstruction of the airway from a carinal mass.  (+info)

Propofol versus sevoflurane for fiberoptic intubation under spontaneous breathing anesthesia in patients difficult to intubate. (6/98)

BACKGROUND: The most recommended technique for the management of patients with a difficult airway is fiberoptic intubation (FOI). The aim of this study was to compare propofol and sevoflurane for FOI performance in patients who were difficult to intubate. METHODS: Seventy-eight patients scheduled for maxillo-facial surgery were included in this prospective, randomized study. The airway was topically anesthetized with lidocaine 5% before performance of FOI with propofol TCI (group P) or sevoflurane (group S). The following parameters were recorded: rate of success, duration of the induction and of the FOI, BIS and PETCO2 values. A visual analogic scale (VAS) was used to monitor the technical difficulties as well as the recall of patients and their satisfaction. The respiratory and hemodynamic complications were also evaluated. RESULTS: Induction and procedure duration were significantly shorter in group S compared with group P. The rate of successful FOI was not different: 38 cases (97%) in group P and 35 cases (90%) in group S. No significant differences were observed between groups regarding BIS values and VAS values for technical difficulties and for patient recall and satisfaction. The incidence of hypertension or tachycardia was significantly higher in group S compared with group P. The incidence of respiratory complications was not significantly different between the groups, but three patients experienced obstructive dyspnea with hypoxemia. CONCLUSION: Propofol and sevoflurane provide a high success rate for the performance of FOI in patients who are difficult to intubate.  (+info)

Manual hyperinflation is associated with a low rate of adverse events when performed by experienced and trained nurses in stable critically ill patients--a prospective observational study. (7/98)

BACKGROUND: Manual hyperinflation (MH) can be performed as part of airway management in intubated and mechanically ventilated patients to mobilize airway secretions. Although previous studies demonstrated MH to be associated with hemodynamic and respiratory instability, we hypothesized MH to cause fewer adverse events (AEs) when performed by experienced and trained nurses in stable critically ill patients. METHODS: The incidence and type of AEs associated with MH were studied in a 28-bed mixed medical-surgical Intensive Care Unit. A difference in mean arterial pressure (MAP) or heart rate (HR) >15%, a decrease in peripheral oxygen saturation (SpO2) >5%, and a change in end-tidal (et)-CO2 >20% were considered AEs.

Japan as a country has taken an aggressive stance to improve outcomes in cardiac arrest. This has been manifested as a huge increase in the number of available public AEDs, improvements in EMS and hospital care, as well as a nationwide registry with one month survival outcomes for all cardiac arrest patients.. As they make improvements to their EMS system, Japan is asking questions about the utility of advanced airway management in out of hospital cardiac arrest patients. The usual EMS crew has 3 personnel with one trained to lead a cardiac arrest, place an IV line, and use an AED. Some agencies allowed the use of supraglottic airways (LMA or combitube) and others allowed with special training, the placement of endotracheal intubation. This ET training consisted of 62 hours of training and a minimum of 30 supervised intubations in an operating room.. ...

In this editorial in the British Journal of Anaesthesias Airway Management issue, Baker et al examine the challenges associated with fulfilling the "ethical obligation for all practitioners to keep up to date through lifelong learning" in airway management.. The editorial includes reference to an innovative e-learning program for airway management based around the Vortex Approach. This Difficult Airway Algorithm and Rescue Cricothyrotomy (DAARC) Program is to be trialled as a mandatory program in Veterans Health Administration hospitals in the United States. The e-learning package includes an avatar based game in which clinicians make context dependent decisions about interventions to establish airway patency. Use of such a model has the potential to provide standardised and engaging airway education in a resource efficient manner. The authors also raise some valid issues in relation to mandatory CICO training, in particular concerns that the emphasis on technical training in CICO Rescue could ...

Upper airway obstruction (UAO) is an unpredictable and frequently occurring complication during induction of general anesthesia. Since obese patients ( BMI,30 km/ m2) are more vulnerable to develop airway obstruction either during sleep or under anesthesia, and the segment of obese individuals in the entire population keep growing, difficult airway management under anesthesia becomes even more challenging than ever. The most serious event related to difficult airway management under anesthesia is cannot intubate, cannot ventilate. Unfortunately, even with modern technologic advances, 16% of death and permanent brain damage related to anesthesia have been attributed to failure of difficult airway management 3. The American Society of Anesthesiologist (ASA) closed claim analysis of anesthesia complications indicate that a difficult airway is one of the most challenging scenarios continuously facing anesthesia providers. Indeed, it can be a fatal complication of general anesthesia. Therefore, ...

INTRODUCTION: Airway management is still a major cause of anesthesia-associated morbidity and mortality. Supraglottic devices are recommended in difficult airway management guidelines. The aim of this study was to compare the performance of the Air-Q® and the LMA Fastrach™ for fiberoptic guided tracheal intubation. METHODS: Thirty-three anesthesia trainees participated in this randomized crossover study. Time to insert the dedicated airways (insertion of the airway into the manikin and delivery of two breaths), time to tracheal intubation (fiberoptic-guided tracheal intubation), time to remove the dedicated airway (removal of the Air-Q®/LMA Fastrach™ over the tracheal tube) and the opinion of the ease of use of the anesthesia trainees were measured ...
Fast and safe airway management in the field is critical but sometimes challenging due to patient and environmental factors. Airway management in entrapped patients or patients located in a confined space can be especially demanding. Inadequate lighting and impaired access to the patient add to the complexity to such situations and increase the risk of adverse events [1]. Attempts at endotracheal intubation (ETI) under suboptimal conditions should be avoided, and safer alternatives should be used whenever possible [2, 3]. Reports from use of supraglottic devices in simulated restricted access and in cases of resuscitation or unanticipated difficult airway are promising [4-6]. Some investigators, however, have reported the successful use of inverse intubation techniques in trauma patients. In a simulated scenario of inverse intubation during helicopter-flight similar time consumption in the interval of 21-24 seconds was reported for classical ETI and inverse technique [7].. Supraglottic devices ...

Paramedics represent the pinnacle of the EMS industry ladder. Paramedics are considered as Advanced Life Support (ALS) and have successfully completed an approved EMT course plus the additional Paramedic modules that consist of approximately 1,500 hours in addition to the EMT course. In addition to classroom didactic, Paramedics are required to have field internships, Emergency Room internships and in some cases Intensive Care Unit internships. Most Paramedic courses take between 1-2 years to complete. Paramedics are trained in all of the EMT skills while also adding to their skill set the ability provide advanced airway management including intubation, insertion of surgical airways, Medication Assisted Intubation (use of paralytics and sedatives to induce intubation), cardiac monitoring, 12 lead ECG acquisition and interpretation, transcutaneous cardiac pacing, manual defibrillation and cardioversion, fluid resuscitation, IO or intraocceus access (placing a needle in a bone to facilitate ...
The presenting symptoms were similar to many other incidents in emergency care: confusion, disorientation, garbled speech and headaches. But this is actually a description of the EMS providers walking through the exhibit area of the big EMS meeting…. They were listening to multiple speakers in conference sessions, and looking through dozens of exhibits of new products that relate to airway management and ventilation for the EMS provider. How are EMS leaders and providers going to address the patient needs for a safe and effective airway in this time of expanding options?. The need for airway management remains the A goal in every trauma, cardiac, medical and pediatric algorithm designed for emergency care. There have never been the huge number and types of options now available for managing the airway, available to first responders, Basic Life Support (BLS), and Advanced Life Support (ALS) personnel.. EMS providers must be skilled in managing airways and ventilation using multiple devices, ...

Presented by Laura Cavallone, M.D., Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri.. Dear SHANA members,. I would like to share with you the "Extubation Algorithm" that I have developed for major neck and upper airway surgery. I believe it offers a reasonable, pragmatic approach to this high-risk patient population, where early extubation failure may occur in nearly 11% of patients due to postoperative laryngo-pharyngeal edema and airway obstruction.. The "Extubation Algorithm" that is offered for your attention has served me well so far in my practice. Yet, it was developed 2 years ago, and will certainly benefit from your constructive feedback. The recently published Difficult Airway Society Guidelines for the management of tracheal extubation and ASA Practice Guidelines for Management of the Difficult Airway have both advanced our appreciation....

What is PHARM? Its the area of clinical medicine involved with the assessment and stabilisation of acutely ill or injured patients in the prehospital setting, who require transport to definitive care. It requires a wide range of skills and knowledge including emergency medicine, paramedicine, critical care and aeromedicine. The working environments span the entire range of those on our planet and challenges placed on prehospital providers are both demanding, mentally and physically. There is no backup, you are the backup and what you bring with you is all you have. We who work in the area and face these challenges in hostile and austere settings choose to, with the belief that a patients location should not dictate the level of emergency care they deserve and we can provide. This is the discipline ...
In the anesthetic environment, an artificial airway conducts gases between the anesthesia machines breathing system and the alveoli. Effective management requires keeping the airway free of secretions, contamination, and obstruction while minimizing complications. Critical illness often causes weakness and obtundation sufficient to impair gas exchange. The sedative, narcotic, anesthetic, and relaxant drugs that facilitate surgery predictably compromise airway patency and protection. The Closed Claims Study of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Committee on Professional Liability has shown that tragic and costly complications of anesthesia frequently have resulted from problematic airway management.1 Some of the obligations of the anesthesiologist include ensuring that the patient is adequately oxygenated, the lungs are ventilated, and airway patency is maintained. Essential attributes of the expert airway manager include knowledge, sound judgment, skills for a range of techniques, ...

An Airway Management Apparatus (AMA) and method for easing the breathing and aiding the alignment of the oral, pharyngeal, and laryngeal axes of the airway of an obese individual in the supine position. The AMA includes an upper-body support, and a head and neck support having a partially concave and partially convex surface coupled to the upper-body support. The AMA eases breathing by raising the individuals upper body at an angle, causing the individuals abdominal mass to fall away from the diaphragm. The AMA provides a support for the individuals neck to be extended, and for the head to be rotated backwards, to aid in the alignment of the oral, pharyngeal, and laryngeal axes of the individuals airway.
One of the first decisions EMS providers make when assessing a pediatric patient is whether to manage the patients medical needs in the field or initiate rapid transport to allow for additional management in the emergency department. Certainly patients with severe conditions such as respiratory failure will require immediate field management to ensure adequate oxygenation and ventilation en route to the hospital. The question of whether to intubate a patient in the field versus providing bag-mask ventilation is a complex one and requires knowledge of what intervention is most effective, has the least complications, and which procedure promises a better outcome. The decision about airway management of pediatric patients in the field versus the emergency department will always require careful consideration and is likely to change with new research and collective experience. ...

For the past week, Devon, Ian and I have been in the classroom. Well, okay, Ians been in there for a heck of a lot longer as a member of the design team. Devon and I joined him this week after attending an early pilot of the course. Weve been in there working on a new BCAS course offering, AIME 2 for BLS.. There are few topics in EMS education that excite me like airway management. It is so fundamental to what we do as health care professionals, but beyond the "look, listen, feel" we all learned in our first CPR course, its rarely touched on except to give us new pieces of plastic as we ascend the skill and license ladder. We spend hours working on BC, we sometimes forget the A.. AIME is one of those courses that fundamentally changes how you practice prehospital care. It twists your viewpoint around and shows you what you could, and must, do better. It puts a mirror on years of ingrained practice and asks "is that the best you could do for that patient?" over and over. And its kind of ...

In the 1970s, Dr. Ovassapian began using an endoscope to insert endotracheal tubes in patients where conventional techniques were difficult. By the early 1980s, he and his colleagues had established the first formal fiberoptic airway management teaching program for residents. In 1984, they also developed a workshop for practicing anesthesiologists. Dr. Ovassapian filed to patent the design for his intubating airway (pictured here) in 1988. In 1995, he founded the Society for Airway Management. Airway management refers to a broad number of techniques aimed at keeping an open pathway for air to move in and out of a patients lungs ...

Error management training is an intervention that capitalizes on the cognitive benefits of making errors for transfer of training, while minimizing the negative effects of errors on motivation. This study examined the effects of the structural and instructional components of error management training within a resource allocation framework, and investigated the role of distal predictors (cognitive ability and learning goal orientation) and proximal predictors (self-regulatory processes: emotion control, metacognitive activity, and self-efficacy) on training outcomes. Participants (N = 161, mean age = 39.7) were recruited from the community and were trained on computer database software in one of three conditions: high structure + error encouragement instructions, high structure + no instructions, or low structure + error encouragement instructions. Training effectiveness was assessed on multiple indices of learning (task performance, knowledge structures, and self-efficacy), measured immediately ...

The distinguishing feature of RAE tubes in comparison to standard ET tubes is their pre-formed bend. The pre-forming during manufacturing reduces the risk of kinking and obstruction which could occur if a standard ET tube was bent into the same shape as a RAE tube. A black marker bar is imprinted on the tube at the point of maximum angle of the bend (see pictures below).. RAE endotracheal tubes are otherwise designed the same way as standard orotracheal tubes, i.e. they have the same left -facing bevelled tip, Murphy eye, cuff design, and length/ diameter markings.. Oral RAE tubes are also described as south-facing, i.e. the tube connector facing towards the patients feet after placement, while nasal RAE tubes are also known as north-facing, i.e. the tube connector facing towards the patients head after placement.. ...

Hospital based registries have been used successfully to demonstrate temporal changes in management and outcome of myocardial infarction.21 Such registries facilitate observational research and provide clinically useful activity data for health care planning. Being locally delivered, they are not reliant upon central government or pharmaceutical industry funding, and are not endangered by changes in political priorities. But their findings may not be generalisable to other hospitals. Larger registries, involving common definitions and methods of data collection across a variety of hospitals, have the added advantage of allowing the description of regional variations in practice and outcome.22 Such schemes have tended to be rather short term and to include only "volunteer" centres, whose practice may not reflect the true variation of clinical care.. All acute hospitals in England and all except one such hospital in Wales contribute data to the Myocardial Infarction National Audit Project (MINAP). ...

There are few data on the impact of simulation on the acquisition of airway management skills in general and cricothyrotomy in particular. A recent study by Boet et al.18 reported that a single simulation cricothyrotomy training session improved the procedural skills of 28 attending anesthetists and that this improvement was retained for at least a year. In the latter study, the attending anesthetists were assessed in a simulated cricothyrotomy scenario in a pretest, immediately after a debriefing and structured teaching session on cricothyrotomy insertion and at either 6 or 12 months posttest. The same scenario was used in the pretest and in the posttests; the resident played the role of an anesthesiologist called on to help with an ongoing intubation attempt. On the simulated patients arrival, the oxygen saturation was 89% and falling by 10% per minute. All intubation methods were destined to be unsuccessful, because the manikin was set up in the CICV configuration. Hence, the scenario was ...
POSITION STATEMENT. Pre-hospital rapid sequence intubation. Christopher Stein; Martin Botha; Efraim Kramer; Daniel Nevin; Roger Dickerson; Lara Goldstein; Mike Wells; Dagmar Muhlbauer; Craig Vincent-Lambert. The Professional Board for Emergency Care at the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) has approved pre-hospital rapid sequence intubation (RSI) as part of the scope of practice for registered emergency care practitioners (ECPs). RSI is an advanced airway management process that facilitates endotracheal intubation in adults and children. Features of this technique include pre-oxygenation, rapid pharmacological induction of unconsciousness, and neuromuscular blockade to enable the placement of an endotracheal tube. RSI has become widespread as the procedure of choice for definitive airway management by pre- and in-hospital emergency care personnel worldwide. In the emergency department setting, RSI is superior to intubation with deep sedation, a technique not incorporating ...

OBJECTIVE. Endotracheal intubation of newborn infants is a mandatory competence for many pediatric trainees. The Neonatal Resuscitation Program recommends a 20-second limit for intubation attempts. Intubation attempts by junior doctors are frequently unsuccessful, and many infants are intubated between 20 and 30 seconds without apparent adverse effect. Little is known about the proficiency of more senior medical staff, the time taken to determine endotracheal tube (ETT) position, or the effects of attempted intubation on infants heart rate (HR) and oxygen saturation (Spo2) in the delivery room (DR). The objectives of this study were to determine (1) the success rates and duration of intubation attempts during DR resuscitation, (2) whether experience is associated with greater success rates and shorter time taken to intubate, (3) the time taken to identify ETT position after intubation, and (4) the frequency with which infants deteriorated during intubation attempts and the time at which this ...
BACKGROUND Hypertension often occurs after tracheal intubation using a Macintosh laryngoscope and may lead to rare but serious complications. The Macintosh laryngoscope may increase the incidence of hypertension because it requires forced alignment of the oral and pharyngeal axes in order to view the glottis. In contrast, the McGRATH MAC video laryngoscope does not require this manipulation. The objective of this study was to evaluate the incidence of hypertension after tracheal intubation using a McGRATH laryngoscope compared with a Macintosh laryngoscope. METHODS Data of 360 consecutive patients who underwent general anesthesia with tracheal intubation by Macintosh laryngoscope or McGRATH video laryngoscope were obtained retrospectively. A total of 16 variables including patient characteristics, anesthetic drug used, and intubation techniques were extracted as potential factors affecting the incidence of hypertension after intubation. The incidence of hypertension after tracheal intubation was
Four different maneuvers-simple direct laryngoscopy without any assistance (control), simple direct laryngoscopy with mandibular advancement, simple direct laryngoscopy with the BURP maneuver, and simple direct laryngoscopy with the combination of mandibular advancement and the BURP maneuver-were performed in each subject (fig. 1). First, simple direct laryngoscopy was attempted with maximum efforts to visualize the larynx; visibility of the larynx was evaluated by means of the Cormack-Lehane classification system. We defined the Cormack-Lehane grade as follows: I = most of the glottis is visible; II = the posterior commissure is visible; III = no part of the glottis can be seen except the epiglottis; IV = not even the epiglottis can be seen. 7 If the visualization of the glottis was categorized as Cormack-Lehane grade I, the pillow was removed and direct laryngoscopy was reattempted. If the visualization of the larynx was still categorized as Cormack-Lehane grade I even with this treatment, the ...
Benefits: General anesthesia provides an optimal surgical field with a secured airway. This is particularly crucial given the surgical risk to vital structures in the anterior neck (carotid artery, internal jugular vein, recurrent laryngeal nerve, trachea, and esophagus).. Drawbacks: The side effects of general anesthetics are the only drawbacks of this technique, but this is the only manageable option.. Preoperative airway concerns: Due to the nature of the disease process, a careful airway exam including neck range of motion and its impact on neurologic symptoms should be obtained prior to induction. In general, the airway should be secured with the technique that is most familiar to the anesthetic team and least likely to cause airway trauma or worsen neurologic symptoms with extremes of positioning. This may be an awake fiberoptic intubation in a patient with a suspected difficult airway and severe gastroesophageal reflux disease or the use of video laryngoscopy or traditional direct ...

Laryngoscopes | Anesthesia Airway Management (AAM)Laryngoscopes | Anesthesia Airway Management (AAM)

Laryngoscopes are, simply put, devices that allow to view the larynx. The larynx can be looked at either directly or indirectly.. Devices for direct laryngoscopy essentially establish a direct line of sight between the eye of the practitioner and the larynx. Direct laryngoscopes include the typical handle and blade assemblies..
