Intubation is frequently required for patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) but is associated with high morbidity and mortality mainly in emergency procedures and in the presence of severe organ failures. Improving the intubation procedure is a major goal for all ICU physicians worldwide, and videolaryngoscopy may play a relevant role.Videolaryngoscopes are a heterogeneous entity, including Macintosh blade-shaped optical laryngoscopes, anatomically shaped blade without a tube guide and anatomically shaped blade with a tube guide, which might have theoretical benefits and pitfalls...

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) is moving toward competency-based medical education. This educational framework requires the description of educational outcomes based on the knowledge, skills, and behaviors expected of competent trainees. An assessment program is essential to provide formative feedback to trainees as they progress to competency in each outcome. This article describes the development of 2 model curricula for airway management training (basic and advanced) using a competency-based framework...

BACKGROUND: We aimed to evaluate glottis visualization and time to intubation in children younger than two years of age during laryngoscopy performed with a C-MAC Miller Video Laryngoscope in a position determined by placing a folded towel under the shoulders to align the oral-pharyngeal and laryngeal axes in the horizontal plane. METHODS: Ninety-six children younger than two years of age, who were classified by the American Society of Anesthesiologists as having a physical status I or II and who were scheduled for elective surgery necessitating endotracheal intubation under general anesthesia, were included in the study...

Background and objectives : To compare the first pass success (FPS) rate of the C-MAC video laryngoscope (C-MAC) and conventional Macintosh-type direct laryngoscopy (DL) during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in the emergency department (ED). Materials and Methods : This study was a single-center, retrospective study conducted from April 2014 to July 2018. Patients were categorized into either the C-MAC or DL group, according to the device used on the first endotracheal intubation (ETI) attempt. The primary outcome was the FPS rate...

INTRODUCTION: Ambulance transport of patients with stroke is common, with rapid sequence intubation (RSI) to secure the airway used regularly. Randomised controlled trial evidence exists to support the use of RSI in traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), but it is not clear whether the RSI evidence from TBI can be applied to the patient with stroke. To this end, we analysed a retrospective stroke dataset to compare survival of patients with RSI compared with patients that did not receive RSI...

BACKGROUND: Preformed nasal endotracheal tubes (NETs) come with a predefined insertion depth due to their curved design. While size indication refers to internal diameter, there is a considerable variability in the corresponding lengths and proportions of same-sized tubes of different manufacturers which is probably based on the lack of data of nasolaryngeal distances (NLDs) in the adult population. Choosing the best-fitting NET is therefore difficult and carries the risk of endobronchial intubation or, on the contrary, cuff inflation at the vocal cord level...

BACKGROUND: Paediatric patients with an unanticipated poor grade of laryngoscopic view during tracheal intubation represent a challenging situation potentially associated with increased morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency of modified Cormack-Lehane (MCL) views and to elucidate variables for poor views in a large collective of children without anticipated airway difficulties. METHODS: The departmental anaesthesia patient database was searched for patients who had undergone general anaesthesia with tracheal intubation between January 2007 and March 2017...

Emergency front-of-neck access to achieve a percutaneous airway can be a life-saving intervention, but there is debate about the preferred technique. This prospective, observational study was designed to compare the two most common emergency surgical airway techniques in a wet lab simulation using an ovine model. Forty-three doctors participated. After providing standardised reading, a lecture and dry lab benchtop training, participants progressed to a high-fidelity wet lab simulation. Participants entered an operating theatre where a 'cannot intubate, cannot oxygenate' situation had been declared and were directed to perform emergency front-of-neck access: first with a cannula technique (14-gauge cannula insertion with ventilation using a Rapid-O2® cricothyroidotomy insufflation device); and subsequently, a scalpel-bougie technique (surgical incision, bougie insertion into trachea and then tracheal tube passed over bougie, with ventilation using a self-inflating bag)...

BACKGROUND: Due to its favorable hemodynamic characteristics and by providing good intubation conditions etomidate is often used for induction of general anesthesia in trauma patients. It has been linked to temporary adrenal cortical dysfunction. The clinical relevance of this finding after a single-dose is still lacking appropriate evidence. METHODS: This retrospective multi-centre study is based on merged data from a German Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) database and a large trauma patient registry...

Paediatric airway management is a challenging area of anaesthesia practice to learn. Techniques and skills required need modification from adult practice and gaining experience through exposure takes considerable time. Preparation to manage airway emergencies can be particularly difficult as these events are rare in paediatric practice. This study aimed to examine what educational approaches health professionals of varying backgrounds find useful when learning or teaching paediatric airway management. This qualitative study involved the conduct of five interdisciplinary focus groups; each group consisted of four to six health professionals from nursing, anaesthetic, simulation and critical care backgrounds...

OBJECTIVES: Many registry studies on patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) have reported that conventional bag-valve-mask (BVM) ventilation is independently associated with favourable outcomes. This study aimed to compare the data of patients with OCHA with confirmed cardiac output on emergency medical services (EMS) arrival and consider the confounding factors in prehospital airway management studies. METHODS: This was a cohort study using the registry data for survivors after out-of hospital cardiac arrest in the Kanto region at 2012 in Japan (SOS-KANTO 2012)...

This study investigated displacement of the tracheal tube caused by different methods of intubating stylet removal, using in-vitro experiments and mathematical analysis. In the first in-vitro experiment, we measured the distance travelled by the tube tip during stylet extraction. Then, we investigated the ideal technique for stylet extraction using mathematical analysis, which would cause minimal tube displacement. Then, using a training manikin, we measured the force applied to the vocal cords and stylet extraction force during tracheal intubation...

BACKGROUND: Tracheal intubation failure in patients with difficult airway is still not uncommon. While videolaryngoscopes such as the Glidescope offer better glottic vision due to an acute-angled blade, this advantage does not always lead to an increased success rate because successful insertion of the tube through the vocal cords may be the limiting factor. We hypothesize that combined use of Glidescope and fiberscope used only as a dynamic guide facilitates tracheal intubation compared to a conventional Glidescope technique with a preshaped nondynamic stylet...

BACKGROUND: After cardiac surgery, a patient's trachea is usually extubated; however, 2 to 13% of cardiac surgery patients require reintubation in the ICU. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to compare the initial intubation in the cardiac operating room with reintubation (if required) in the ICU following cardiac surgery. DESIGN: A prospective, observational study. SETTING: Department of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine, Clinical Hospital of Santiago, Spain...

Ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI) is a central confounder to improving outcomes from use of positive-pressure ventilation in critical illness. Therefore, with increasing use of positive-pressure ventilation, awareness to prevent VILI has grown. Because VILI cannot be diagnosed at the bedside, its prevention can only be attained by identifying the clinical mechanisms of harm, such as high tidal volume, high plateau pressure, and so forth, which, in turn, are derived from decades of laboratory work. The practice of positive-pressure ventilation has undergone a significant change; most important in the past decade is the preference to use noninvasive ventilation...

For more than 40 years, noninvasive ventilation has been the first-line preferred therapy for acute-on-chronic conditions, such as COPD and cardiogenic pulmonary edema. The use of noninvasive ventilation in the treatment of hypoxemic respiratory failure, however, has been met with mixed results associated with higher risks of intubation (failure of therapy) and with higher risks of mortality. The purpose of this review was to describe the current evidence and important considerations when patients with hypoxemic respiratory failure are managed with noninvasive ventilation...
