Airway Management Practice in Adults With an Unstable Cervical Spine: The Harborview Medical Center Experience.

Anesth Analg 2018 Aug;127(2):450-454

Harborview Medical Center, Seattle, Washington.

Background: Airway management in the presence of acute cervical spine injury (CSI) is challenging. Because it limits cervical spine motion during tracheal intubation and allows for neurological examination after the procedure, awake fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FOB) has traditionally been recommended. However, with the widespread availability of video laryngoscopy (VL), its use has declined dramatically. Read More

Cadaveric study of movement in the unstable upper cervical spine during emergency management: tracheal intubation and cervical spine immobilisation-a study protocol for a prospective randomised crossover trial.

BMJ Open 2017 Sep 1;7(8):e015307. Epub 2017 Sep 1.

Department of Trauma Surgery and Orthopedics, BG Trauma Center Ludwigshafen, Ludwigshafen, Germany.

Introduction: Emergency management of upper cervical spine injuries often requires cervical spine immobilisation and some critical patients also require airway management. The movement of cervical spine created by tracheal intubation and cervical spine immobilisation can potentially exacerbate cervical spinal cord injury. However, the evidence that previous studies have provided remains unclear, due to lack of a direct measurement technique for dural sac's space during dynamic processes. Read More

Evaluation of simple pre-determined length insertion technique (SPLIT) with conventional method for oral fibreoptic intubation: A randomised cross-over study.

Indian J Anaesth 2017 Jan;61(1):36-41

Department of Anaesthesiology and Critical Care, Jawaharlal Institute of Post-graduate Medical Education and Research, Puducherry, India.

Background And Aims: The difficulty during flexible fiber-optic bronchoscopy (FOB) guided tracheal intubation could be because of inability in visualising glottis, advancing and railroading of endotracheal tube. Several methods are available for visualising glottis, but none is ideal. Hence, this randomised controlled study was designed to evaluate the simple pre-determined length insertion technique (SPLIT) during oral FOB. Read More

A Case Report: Establishing a Definitive Airway in a Trauma Patient With a King Laryngeal Tube In Situ in the Presence of a Closed Head Injury and Difficult Airway: "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea".

A A Case Rep 2017 Mar;8(6):139-141

From the *Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, Queen's University, Kingston General Hospital, Kingston, Ontario, Canada; and †Department of Otolaryngology, Queen's University, Hotel Dieu Hospital, Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

Airway management in trauma is a crucial skill, because patients are at risk of aspiration, hypoxia, and hypoventilation, all of which may be fatal in the setting of increased intracranial pressure. The King Laryngeal Tube reusable supraglottic airway (King Systems, Noblesville, IN) allows for temporary management of a difficult airway but poses a challenge when an attempt is made to exchange the device for an endotracheal tube, often managed by emergency tracheostomy. We describe a novel fiberoptic, video laryngoscope-assisted approach to intubation in a difficult trauma airway with an in situ King Laryngeal Tube. Read More

Comparison of intubating laryngeal mask airway and fiberoptic bronchoscopy for endotracheal intubation in patients undergoing cervical discectomy.

J Anaesthesiol Clin Pharmacol 2016 Oct-Dec;32(4):515-518

Department of Anaesthesiology, Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Whitefield, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India.

Background And Aims: Direct laryngoscopy is hazardous in patients with cervical posterior intervertebral disc prolapse (PIVD) as it may worsen the existing cord compression. To achieve smooth intubation, many adjuncts such as fiberoptic bronchoscope (FOB), video laryngoscopes, lighted stylets, and intubating laryngeal mask airways (ILMAs) are available. However, there is a paucity of literature comparing ILMA with fiberoptic intubation in patients with PIVD. Read More

Utilization of a gum elastic bougie to facilitate single lung intubation.

Am J Emerg Med 2016 Dec 27;34(12):2408-2410. Epub 2016 Aug 27.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Cook County Hospital, 1900 W Polk St, 10th Floor, 60612, Chicago, IL.

Introduction: Patients with severe pulmonary hemorrhage due to unilateral trauma or a bleeding cancer often present to the emergency department in acute respiratory distress. Although it is generally recommended to perform single lung intubation, most emergency department providers do not have access to or are not familiar with double-lumen endotracheal tubes, and blind insertion of an endotracheal tube to maximum depth does not ensure that the proper (nonhemorrhagic) lung is ventilated. Therefore, single lung intubation may be significantly delayed in these patients. Read More

Background: Cricopharyngeal foreign bodies (FBs) impaction in adults is a common clinical problem; without treatment, the sequelae may be lethal due to local and/or mediastinal infection. When direct laryngoscopy and flexible fiberoptic endoscopy are ineffective, rigid endoscopy is the method of choice requiring general anesthesia. The new video laryngoscopes represent a great advancement in the assessment of the laryngeal inlet. Read More

Aids for facilitation of difficult tracheal intubation review and recent advances.

Middle East J Anaesthesiol 2012 Oct;21(6):785-91

Anesthesiology Department, American University of Beirut Medical Center, Beirut, Lebanon.

Management of difficult tracheal intubation has been facilitated by different techniques which include the use of stylets, introducers, intubating laryngeal mask airway, as well as by the development of special laryngoscope blades and fiberoptic laryngoscopes. The most recent advances for facilitation of difficult tracheal intubation is the introduction of the video-assisted laryngoscopes. The management of difficult tracheal intubation by video-assisted laryngoscopy can be further facilitated by using suspension laryngoscopy which frees the hands of the anesthesiologist to handle the insertion of the endotracheal tube with the aid of an endotracheal tube introducer, and a curved pipe stylet, under an umbrella of pharyngeal oxygen insufflation.

Huge multinodular goiter with mid trachea obstruction: indication for fiberoptic intubation.

Acta Clin Croat 2012 Sep;51(3):493-8

Department of Anesthesiology, Sv. Katarina Special Hospital for Orthopedic Surgery, Neurology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Bracak, Croatia.

Goiter or thyromegaly is one of the most common causes of mid tracheal obstruction (external compression or stenosis), which may be associated with difficult larynx visualization and/or difficult airway management, depending on the goiter size, type and ingrowth into the surrounding tissue. Iodine deficiency disorders are still one of the most common causes of goiter in the population of the African continent. These patients with goiter generally present for medical examination at an advanced stage of the disease. Read More

Awake fiberoptic or awake video laryngoscopic tracheal intubation in patients with anticipated difficult airway management: a randomized clinical trial.

Anesthesiology 2012 Jun;116(6):1210-6

Department of Anesthesiology, Copenhagen University Hospital, Hillerød, Denmark.

Background: Awake flexible fiberoptic intubation (FFI) is the gold standard for management of anticipated difficult tracheal intubation. The purpose of this study was to compare awake FFI to awake McGrath® video laryngoscope, (MVL), (Aircraft Medical, Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom) intubation in patients with an anticipated difficult intubation. The authors examined the hypothesis that MVL intubation would be faster than FFI. Read More

Successful use of videolaryngoscopy in an adult patient with acute epiglottitis: a case report.

Acta Anaesthesiol Belg 2010 ;61(2):67-70

Department of Anesthesiology, Intensive Care and Pain Therapy, Catharina Hospital-Brabant Medical School, Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Acute epiglottitis is a potentially life-threatening infection of the supraglottic structures, which can lead to sudden, fatal airway obstruction. Different techniques have been described to facilitate tracheal intubation in acute epiglottitis. We describe the successful intubation, with the help of the videolaryngoscope, of a 60-year-old female with acute epiglottitis. Read More

Review of video laryngoscopy and rigid fiberoptic laryngoscopy.

Curr Opin Anaesthesiol 2008 Dec;21(6):750-8

Department of Anesthesiology, Penn State Milton Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, Pennsylvania 17033, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Recent advances in fiberoptic systems and video technology have resulted in the development of new intubation devices and techniques. A defining characteristic of rigid fiberoptic and videolaryngoscopic techniques is that glottic opening is viewed indirectly in place of direct line-of-sight. Various issues common to all instruments in this group are highlighted, and a few recently released tools are described. Read More
