intubation is commonly performed to secure and protect the airway in patients requiring general anesthesia for surgical procedures.
A meta-analysis of prehospital airway control techniques part 1: orotracheal
and nasotracheal intubation success rates.
(9) They also found that sedation and orotracheal
intubation were independent risk factors for abnormal tympanometry.
If brisk haemorrhage has occurred, tracheostomy tube cuff hyperinflation may help to control the bleeding temporarily.2 However, if massive haemorrhage occurs with high suspicion of TIF, as in our patient, orotracheal
tube can be inserted distal to the bleeding site and the tracheostomy tube should be removed simultaneously.
A comparison of an anterior jaw lift manoeuvre with the Berman airway for assisting fibreoptic orotracheal
[1,2] As compared to orotracheal
intubation, these responses are significantly greater during nasotracheal intubation and with conventional laryngoscopes.
San Diego, CA, USA) is a modified version of the intubating laryngeal mask airway (ILMA) with a fibreoptic system and a detachable liquid crystal display screen that allows real-time view of the airway during orotracheal
To the Editor: In a randomized controlled trial by Xu et al .,[sup] comparing the performance of the Shikani Optical Stylet and Macintosh laryngoscope for orotracheal
intubation in patients with cervical spondylosis, they showed that Shikani Optical Stylet compared to Macintosh laryngoscope was more clinically beneficial, especially in patients with difficult airways.
Comparison of haemodynamic responses to orotracheal
intubation with GlideScope video laryngoscope and fibreoptic bronchoscope.
A study from Thailand reported overall success of 99.6% for orotracheal
intubation (both RSI and crash intubation) and successful intubation on first attempt in 79.5% of patients.11 Anaesthetists performed most of these intubations.
