Tracheal intubation of the awake parturient, using the AWS with lignocaine jelly to anaesthetise the pharynx, was performed smoothly at the first attempt.
A successful attempt, whereby ventilation and oxygenation are confirmed, can then be progressed to tracheal intubation via fibreoptic scope, allowing visual confirmation of the epiglottis, and therefore the vocal cords (Peiris et al 2008).
Dexmedetomidine attenuates sympathoadrenal responses to tracheal intubation and reduces the need for thiopentone and preoperative fentanyl.
If severe airway obstruction occurs during sevoflurane inhalation and cannot be relieved by routine airway maneuvers, sevoflurane is turned off and the patient is woken up for awake tracheal intubation. Third, for patients with adequate facemask ventilation under sevoflurane anesthesia, direct laryngoscopy attempt is allowed and then second decision-marking point of the FDAE approach depends on whether or not laryngoscopic view is adequate.
The main result of this study was that the laryngeal view change under cricoid pressure and the tracheal intubation time for the McGrath MAC X-Blade video laryngoscope was similar to that for the Macintosh laryngoscope.
Mansoor Soltanzadeh et al studied the effects of preoperative oral gabapentin in reduction of intraocular pressure and cardiovascular changes following laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation. In this placebo-controlled study 900 mg of gabapentin was given two hours before the surgery.
concluded that using the McGrath VL may reduce the occurrence of hypertension after tracheal intubation relative to the Macintosh DL.24 Successful intubation using the Macintosh DL often requires forcing the arrangement of the pharyngeal and axes in order to establish the glottic view.
Based on our findings, we propose that tracheal intubation with MG is advantageous in preventing cardiovascular stress responses with short intubation time and less sore throat incidence.
