OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Observed complications during rigid bronchoscopy, including hypercarbia and hypoxemia, prompted us to assess how well rigid bronchoscopes serve as an airway device. We performed computer-aided design flow analysis of pediatric rigid bronchoscopes to gain insight into flow dynamics. STUDY DESIGN: We made accurate three-dimensional computer models of pediatric rigid bronchoscopes and endotracheal tubes. SOLIDWORKS (Dassault Systemes, Vélizy-Villacoublay, France) flow analysis software was used to analyze fluid dynamics during pressure-controlled and volume-controlled ventilation...

A 4-year-old boy presented for elective bronchoscopy after years of pharmacologically unresponsive reactive airway disease that limited physical activity. After mask induction with nitrous oxide and sevoflurane, the patient was noted to be intermittently in a hemodynamically stable tachyarrhythmia. The anesthesia machine, though equipped with electrocardiogram (ECG) recording capabilities, malfunctioned during the case and was not able to print a rhythm strip. As a substitute, a smartphone picture and video were recorded...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the need for postoperative admission following airway foreign body retrieval by examining the preoperative presentation, operative details, and postoperative recovery. INTRODUCTION: Inpatient admission following foreign body removal is common, however little evidence supports this practice. In the era of cost containment and prudent utilization of hospital resources, careful examination of the postoperative course following airway foreign body removal is required...

OBJECTIVE: Recurrent tracheoesophageal fistula (RTEF) is a serious complication after primary repair of esophageal atresia and tracheoesophageal fistula (EA/TEF). Treatment of RTEF involved an open surgery by thoracotomy. Technically it is a challenge with a high morbidity and mortality. Congenital tracheoesophageal fistula (CTEF) traditionally involved an open surgery by thoracotomy or cervicotomy. Many endoscopic techniques have been developed since the past decades: thoracoscopic or bronchoscopic approach for the treatment of RTEF and CTEF; nevertheless, optimal treatment is not still determined because of few numbers of patients, short-term follow-up, and different procedures...

Mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the tracheobronchial tree is a rare airway tumor (<1% of all lung tumors). In adults, the majority of primary tracheal tumors are malignant. Management during pregnancy is complex and requires weighing maternal and fetal prognosis. Reported cases describe surgical resection following cesarean section. We report the first case to be treated by Argon-Plasma Coagulation (APC) in pregnancy. A 35-year-old Caucasian woman G1P0, at 27 weeks of gestation was admitted to the emergency department because of hemoptysis and severe dyspnea...

PURPOSE: Diagnostic laryngoscopy and bronchoscopy (DLB) has been the traditional preoperative diagnostic modality for evaluating presence and severity of tracheobronchomalacia (TBM), and requires anesthesia. Alternatively, multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) is potentially a noninvasive modality that provides high-resolution, 3-dimensional (3D) imaging of the thorax providing preoperative guidance for pediatric surgeons. This study compares MDCT with intraoperative DLB in the assessment of TBM in symptomatic pediatric patients with esophageal atresia (EA)...

BACKGROUND: While the majority of pediatric intubations are uncomplicated, the 'Can't intubate, Can't Oxygenate' scenario (CICO) does occur. With limited management guidelines available, CICO is still a challenge even to experienced pediatric anesthetists. OBJECTIVES: To compare the COOK Melker cricothyroidotomy kit (CM) with a scalpel bougie (SB) technique for success rate and complication rate in a tracheotomy on a cadaveric 'infant airway' animal model. METHODS: Two experienced proceduralists repeatedly attempted tracheotomy in eight rabbits, alternately using CM and SB (4 fr) technique...

BACKGROUND: Drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) uses sedative-hypnotics to induce moderate obstruction in sleep apnea patients, thereby facilitating anatomic assessment of obstructive physiology. Implementation of DISE with propofol requires a dosing strategy that reliably and efficiently produces obstruction while minimizing oxygen desaturation. METHODS: The surgeon in a prospective study of transoral robotic resection of the tongue base enrolled 97 patients with obstructive sleep apnea confirmed by polysomnography who failed continuous positive airway pressure...

OBJECTIVE: Laryngoscopy and stimuli inside the trachea cause an intense sympatho-adrenal response. Remifentanil seems to be the optimal opioid for rigid bronchoscopy due to its potent and short-acting properties. The purpose of this study was to compare bolus propofol and ketamine as an adjuvant to remifentanil-based total intravenous anesthesia for pediatric rigid bronchoscopy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Forty children under 12 years of age who had been scheduled for a rigid bronchoscopy were included in this study...

Pulseless electrical activity, an arrhythmia that leads to cardiac arrest, is defined as the presence of organized electrical activity without a palpable pulse or arterial blood pressure. When this arrhythmia presents during anesthesia, it has become routine practice to initiate advanced cardiac life support according to the American Heart Association guidelines. This arrhythmia is usually associated with a poor prognosis unless a reversible cause is investigated and treated immediately. The purpose of this article is to summarize the causative factors of pulseless electrical activity and its treatment modalities...
