Sudden Tachycardia Due to Submucosal Migration of an Epinephrine-Soaked Swab During Nasal Intubation.

Anesth Prog 2018 ;65(4):259-260

Department of Anesthesiology, Showa University Koto Toyosu Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

A 23-year-old healthy man was scheduled for extraction of his mandibular third molars under general anesthesia with nasotracheal intubation. Sudden sinus tachycardia up to 170 beats/min occurred when applying an epinephrine solution-soaked swab into the nasal cavity for preventing epistaxis during intubation. This was presumably evoked by submucosal migration of the swab into a false passage created because of the force applied during a prior failed attempt at nasal passage of the tracheal tube, and rapid epinephrine absorption by the traumatized mucosa.

Is Tube Thermosoftening Helpful for Videolaryngoscope-Guided Nasotracheal Intubation?: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

Anesth Analg 2018 Sep 24. Epub 2018 Sep 24.

From the Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Kangnam Sacred Heart Hospital, Hallym University College of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background: Thermosoftening of the endotracheal tube (ETT) and telescoping the ETT into a rubber catheter have been suggested as a method for reducing epistaxis during nasotracheal intubation (NTI). However, thermosoftening technique is known to make it difficult to navigate the ETT into trachea without the use of Magill forceps during NTI. The cuff inflation technique has been suggested as an effective alternative to the use of Magill forceps to improve the oropharyngeal navigation of the ETT, irrespective of their stiffness, during direct laryngoscope-guided NTI.

Technique Utilizing a Modified Oral Ring-Adair-Elwyn Tube to Provide Continuous Oxygen and Sevoflurane Delivery During Nasotracheal Intubation in an Infant With a Difficult Airway: A Case Report.

A A Pract 2018 May;10(10):254-257

Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Managing the airway of an infant with Pierre Robin sequence (PRS) is particularly challenging for anesthesiologists. Patients with PRS have the triad of micrognathia, glossoptosis, and airway obstruction that potentially and frequently leads to difficulty with both ventilation and intubation. Thus continuous oxygenation and spontaneous ventilation during intubation are essential. Read More

Orotracheal intubation in a patient with difficult airway by using fiberoptic nasotracheal intubation: A case report.

J Dent Anesth Pain Med 2018 Apr 27;18(2):125-128. Epub 2018 Apr 27.

Department of Dental Anesthesiology, Seoul National University Dental Hospital, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

In cases of a difficult intubation where numerous intubation methods, including laryngoscopy, have failed, yet oral intubation is still necessary, the method of tube exchange after fiberoptic nasal intubation may be attempted. Fiberoptic nasal intubation allows intubation to be performed relatively easily when the laryngeal view grade is poor. We report a case in which our attempt at oral intubation for total maxillectomy with laryngoscopy and fiberoptic oral intubation had failed due to an unexpected difficult airway; subsequently, we successfully completed the surgery by performing fiberoptic nasal intubation to secure the airway, followed by using a tube exchanger to exchange to an oral endotracheal tube.

Effect of Bougie-Guided Nasal Intubations upon Bleeding: A Randomised Controlled Trial.

Turk J Anaesthesiol Reanim 2018 Apr 27;46(2):96-99. Epub 2017 Nov 27.

Department of Anaesthesiology and Critical Care, Indra Gandhi Government Medical College and Research Centre, Puducherry, India.

Objective: Bleeding due to inadvertent trauma is a troublesome complication of nasal intubations. A lot of methods have been suggested to minimise this problem. A flexible bougie can be passed atraumatically via the nasal route to the trachea and an appropriate-sized endotracheal tube can be railroaded over it to avoid this problem. Read More

A Randomized Trial Comparing the Effect of Fiberoptic Selection and Guidance Versus Random Selection, Blind Insertion, and Direct Laryngoscopy, on the Incidence and Severity of Epistaxis After Nasotracheal Intubation.

Anesth Analg 2018 Aug;127(2):485-489

From the Department of Anesthesia and Critical Care, University of Chicago Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois.

Background: Epistaxis, or nasal bleeding, is a common complication after nasotracheal intubation (NTI). Because such bleeding is likely related to trauma during intubation, use of fiberoptic visualization and guidance rather than direct laryngoscopy may affect the incidence and severity of epistaxis. We compared the incidence of epistaxis after NTI using a fiberoptic versus a direct laryngoscopy approach. Read More

Jaw Opening Decreases Window to the Deep Parotid Lobe.

Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2018 Sep 3;159(3):439-441. Epub 2018 Apr 3.

2 Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, California, USA.

To describe the relationship between jaw opening and access to the deep parotid window, we identified the following distances in 10 human skulls: symphysis to angle of mandible, mastoid tip to angle of mandible, angle of mandible to condylar process, and mastoid tip to condylar process. With the jaw closed and open, these distances were measured with 1 to 3 wooden blocks, each measuring 1 cm, between the upper and lower incisors. The triangular deep parotid area formed by the last 3 distances was calculated. Read More
