This prospective multicenter study (fast difficult airway
evaluation [FADE] trial) was approved by the local institutional ethics committees of West China Hospital and followed by all participating hospitals.
society guidelines for management of the unanticipated difficult intubation.
The prediction of a difficult airway
remains a major concern in anaesthesia.
Thus, anesthetic management in JS needs more attention related to ventilation parameters and potential difficult airways
Recommendations for airway control and difficult airway
compared five video laryngoscopes and conventional direct laryngoscopy on simple and simulated difficult airways
on the intubation trainer.
A comparison of Bonfils intubation fiberscopy and fiberoptic bronchoscopy in difficult airways
assisted with direct laryngoscopy.
Obesity may be associated with predictors of difficult ventilation and difficult airway
management, including reduced mouth opening, reduced cervical extension, shorter thyromental and mentosternal distance, and decreased thyromental height, increased neck circumference, and obstructive airway anatomy, all of which may come into play at the time of intubation, and produce sleep apnoea.
Indirect optical systems (Airtraq) and video-assisted systems (GVL, fiber optic laryngoscope, and C-MAC) provide much better glottic views than the direct laryngoscope, revealing a high intubation success rate in patients with difficult airway
8% so about one third patients with airways actually easy to intubate will be subjected to the protocol for management of a difficult airway
if ULBT will be used for preoperative airway assessment.
Retrograde intubation around an in situ combitube: a difficult airway
From the anesthesiologist's point of view, there is a severe risk of difficult airway
because of an advanced stiffness of the cervical spine and a reduced mouth opening in these patients.
