• apnea
  • 1 Although sedatives often produce dose-dependent depression of these parameters, their utility to assess respiratory risk during sedation remains unclear because their relationship and predictive value for apnea and upper airway obstruction (UAO) are not known. (asahq.org)
  • If there is evidence of airway obstruction (snorty breathing, apnea, difficulty taking a breath, or drops in oxygen), then the infant should be placed in the sidelying or prone position, which helps bring the tongue base forward in many children. (wikipedia.org)
  • nasopharyngeal
  • In nasopharyngeal cannulation (or placement of the nasopharyngeal airway or tube), the infant is fitted with a blunt-tipped length of surgical tubing (or an endotracheal tube fitted to the child), which is placed under direct visualization with a laryngoscope, being inserted into the nose and down the pharynx (or throat), ending just above the vocal cords. (wikipedia.org)
  • alveolar
  • This combination of small tidal volumes delivered for very short periods of time creates the lowest possible distal airway and alveolar pressures produced by a mechanical ventilator. (wikipedia.org)
  • secondary
  • Placing it into context, Ludwig's angina refers to the feeling of strangling and choking, secondary to obstruction of the airway, which is the most serious potential complication of this condition. (wikipedia.org)
  • Posterior
  • Bjork defined posterior crossbite as a malocclusion where the buccal cusps of canine, premolar and molar of upper teeth occlude lingually to the buccal cusps of canine, premolar and molar of lower teeth. (wikipedia.org)
  • Posterior crossbite is often correlated to a narrow maxilla and upper dental arch. (wikipedia.org)
  • Posterior crossbite can result due to Upper Airway Obstruction where people with "adenoid faces" who have trouble breathing through their nose. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because reflux of acidic contents in the posterior pharynx and upper airway can intensify the symptoms of Robin sequence, specifically by worsening airway obstruction, it is important to maximize treatment for GER in children with PRS and reflux symptoms. (wikipedia.org)
  • congenital
  • Dacryocystoceles account for only 0.1% of congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction and classically presents shortly after birth, more common in girls and usually unilateral. (bmj.com)
  • include
  • We excluded 504 flow-volume loops because the workups for those patients did not include any of the accepted standard tests for diagnosing upper-airway obstruction, so there were 475 eligible flow-volume loops (48.6% of the 979 loops considered). (rcjournal.com)
  • treatment
  • They found that in more than 25% of the OSA cases, this problem results in irreversible problems in mentally manipulating non-verbal information and in executive functions and working memory, despite years of optimal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • lead
  • This will lead to anterior crossbite where upon biting, upper teeth are behind the lower front teeth and may involve few or all frontal incisors. (wikipedia.org)
  • tongue
  • Crossbite is a form of malocclusion where a tooth (or teeth) has a more buccal or lingual position (that is, the tooth is either closer to the cheek or to the tongue) than its corresponding antagonist tooth in the upper or lower dental arch. (wikipedia.org)
  • Patients
  • Patients are often able to maintain an adequate airway despite impressive radiological findings, however rapid deterioration is possible. (radiopaedia.org)
  • throat
  • As the muscle tone of the body ordinarily relaxes during sleep, and the airway at the throat is composed of walls of soft tissue, which can collapse, it is not surprising that breathing can be obstructed during sleep. (wikipedia.org)
  • foreign
  • It is a good idea to learn how to clear an airway of a foreign body by using a method such as the Heimlich maneuver. (drugster.info)
