BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The increased prevalence of obesity in the general population extends to women of reproductive age. The aim of this study is to report the perioperative management of a morbidly obese pregnant woman, body mass index >50kg/m(2), who underwent cesarean section under general anesthesia. CASE REPORT: Pregnant woman in labor, 35 years of age, body mass index 59.8kg/m(2). Cesarean section was indicated due to the presumed fetal macrosomia...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the physician’s knowledge on intubation techniques and to identify the common practices. METHODS: This was a prospective study, involving three different intensive care units within a University hospital: Anesthesiology (ANEST), Pulmonology (PULMO) and Emergency Department (ED). All physicians working in these units and consenting to participate in the study completed a questionnaire with their demographic data and questions on orotracheal intubation...

The problem of comparing the deviation from a target of two or more treatments or procedures arises now and again in medicine. Practitioners usually carry out a t-test on a loss function such as absolute error. We have adapted and developed statistical methods to give a normative methodology for deviation-from-target problems and exemplify them by evaluating the performance of a tactile feedback device. Parametric and nonparametric analyses are compared and contrasted. We recommend nonparametric methods for inference about loss functions such as absolute error, with a permutation test for testing the hypothesis that the two methods perform identically, and the nonparametric bootstrap for deriving standard errors and confidence intervals on loss function ratios...

In 1961, Sellick popularized the technique of cricoid pressure (CP) to prevent regurgitation of gastric contents during anesthesia induction. In the last two decades, clinicians have begun to question the efficacy of CP and therefore the necessity of this maneuver. Some have suggested abandoning it on the grounds that this maneuver is unreliable in producing midline esophageal compression. Moreover, it has been found that application of CP makes tracheal intubation and mask ventilation difficult and induces relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter...

We examined the proper performance of the Sellick maneuver, a maneuver used to reduce the risk of aspiration of stomach contents during induction of general anesthesia, using a novel device that measures and visualizes the force applied to the cricoid cartilage using thin-film force sensitive resistors in a form suitable for in vivo use. Performance was tested in three stages with twenty anaesthesiology residents and twenty trained operating room nurses. Firstly, subjects applied force to the cricoid cartilage as was customary to them...

BACKGROUND: In 1961, Sellick described a three-finger technique of cricoid pressure used to prevent gastric regurgitation during induction of anesthesia. The "Sellick maneuver" is now used worldwide. The authors have observed great variability in the application of cricoid pressure by health care providers and have suspected that misapplication occurs. The objectives of this observational study were to determine how many different techniques of cricoid pressure were being used and to identify the reasons for such variability of technique...

OBJECTIVE: The effectiveness of cricoid pressure in preventing aspiration of gastric contents during rapid sequence intubation may be limited if the esophagus is laterally displaced from the trachea at the level of the cricoid cartilage. Esophageal lateral displacement has been reported to occur in 50% to 90% of adults. Children 8 years and older assume the anatomic airway characteristics of adults, and therefore, we hypothesized that esophageal displacement would be significantly more common in older versus younger children...

BACKGROUND: Sellick described cricoid pressure (CP) as pinching the esophagus between the cricoid ring and the cervical spine. A recent report noted that with the application of CP, the esophagus moved laterally more than 90% of the time, questioning the efficacy of this maneuver. We designed this study to accurately define the anatomy of the Sellick maneuver and to investigate its efficacy. METHODS: Twenty-four nonsedated adult volunteers underwent neck magnetic resonance imaging with and without CP...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: It is a well-established fact today that the technique of choice for elective cesarean delivery is regional anesthesia. However, in patients with intracranial hypertension and central nervous system infection, this technique should be avoided. This paper aimed at reporting the anesthetic management of a pregnant patient with intracranial hypertension due to tuberculous meningitis submitted to elective cesarean delivery. CASE REPORT: Caucasian patient, 32 years old, 1...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Sellick described the importance of applying pressure in the cricoid cartilage during anesthesia induction to prevent regurgitation of gastric contents. Since then, the maneuver has been widely accepted by anesthesiologists as a fundamental step during induction with the rapid sequence technique. The objective of the present report was to discuss the indications, technique, complications, and reasons why some authors have refuted the efficacy of this technique...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine if the application of a BURP maneuver to the cricoid cartilage would combine the benefits of both the BURP and the Sellick maneuvers, resulting in an improved glottic view and offer the potential of protection against passive gastric regurgitation. METHODS: This was a double-blind, prospective, randomized, crossover trial. Forty-three patients scheduled for elective surgery participated in this study. General anesthesia was induced using fentanyl, propofol and rocuronium...

A 62-year-old woman (148 cm, 48.5 kg) with a history of bronchial asthma underwent an emergency appendectomy. Ten days before the operation she developed symptoms of wheezing while under asthma medication. An endotracheal tube (7 mm) was inserted after the induction of general anesthesia with intravenous injection of fentanyl 100 micrograms, propofol 100 mg and vecuronium 10 mg under Sellick's maneuver. Anesthesia was maintained with 1% sevoflurane with oxygen 6l-min-1 just after intubation, but bilateral lung sound soon became weaker and ventilation difficult...

Dysphagia of greater than 48 h duration is an indication for indirect laryngoscopy and when odynophagia and otalgia occur simultaneously, the possibility of subluxation of the arytenoids demands an urgent ENT assessment. The potential seriousness of laryngeal lesions following intubation obliges us to use the smallest compatible endotracheal tube. The occurrence of pain cervical surgical emphysema and fever suggests a pharyngeal lesion necessitating the suspension of oral feeding and the initiation of antibiotic therapy with anaerobic activity, while awaiting possible surgical intervention...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate Emergency Medicine resident physicians' compliance with our institution's rapid sequence intubation (RSI) protocol by the use of videotape analysis. We conducted a prospective, observational study of Emergency Medicine resident physicians (EM 1,2,3) as they were videotaped performing RSI on medical and trauma patients. The videotapes were reviewed by the study investigators to assess the rates of deviation from our standard RSI protocol. Forty-four RSIs performed by 33 residents were studied...

A 61-year-old man was scheduled for an emergency laparotomy due to ileus. He had a history of asthma, but it was well controlled without medication. Anesthesia was induced with propofol and ketamine under the Sellick maneuver. Following administration of vecuronium, endotracheal intubation was performed. However, he could not be ventilated. We thought that the tube had been inserted into the esophagus, and re-intubation was performed. However he could not be ventilated as in the first trial. At that time, we suspected that bronchospasm had occurred...

The Sellick maneuver or cricoid pressure is an effective means of preventing passive aspiration of gastric contents. Recent studies recommend a pressure of 20 newtons (N) when the patient is awake, increasing to 30-40 N with unconsciousness. This study was proposed to determine whether with education and practice, anesthesia providers and assistants could be taught a recommended cricoid pressure and retain this skill. Cricoid force was measured using a life-size laryngotracheal model on a calibrated infant scale...
