The laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation are very essential and important tools in the hands of anaesthesiologist in securing and maintaining the airway and administering general anaesthesia.
However, a recent study showed that the incidence of difficulties during intubation and subsequent complications have increased.2 In addition, research has suggested that airway difficulties occur eight times more frequently in obstetric patients than in the general population.3 In difficult intubation cases, guidelines have provided recommendations for the availability of advanced airway equipment, and neuraxial anesthesia has been encouraged.4 A recent publication argued that video laryngoscopy was superior to direct laryngoscopy for the intubation of obstetric patients with normal airways.5
Thus, following laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation, pathophysiological undesired effects, such as an increase in heart rate (HR) and intravascular, intraocular and intracranial pressure as well as rhythm disturbance and bronchoconstriction frequently occur (3).
As a basic skill, endotracheal intubation, performed throughout the world by health care professionals is a relatively safe and effective maneuver.
Objective: To determine the frequency of difficult intubation in obese patients with neck circumference to thyromental distance ratio (NC/TM) [greater than or equal to]5.0.
[1] Evidence to support prehospital emergency intubation in trauma is inconclusive, and the skill of the operator may be key in determining efficacy.
(1) Hypertensive patients are generally hemodynamically unstable during induction and endotracheal intubation. Most of them exhibit a hypotensive response after induction.
Orotracheal intubation (OTI) is considered the gold standard for securing and ensuring airway patency (', 2).
