In airway manipulations, except for the routine intubations, extra precautions must be taken.
Emergency tracheal intubations at a university hospital: airway outcomes and complications.
Despite their organisational differences, intubations undertaken in the Edendale ED and the Grey's casualty department were categorised as 'ED' intubations.
Although several optic devices have been introduced for successful management of tracheal intubations, the available data do not provide strong evidence that these devices supersede standard direct laryngoscopy for routine or difficult intubation (14).
The percentage of correctly predicted difficult intubations as a proportion of all intubations that were truly difficult, i.e.
We conducted a prospective observational study of intubations in the BAMC ED as part of the facility's participation in NEAR.
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).
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.
Laryngoscopy and endotracheal intubation are associated with pressor response which is recorded as tachycardia and increase in systemic arterial pressure.
