Respiratory management during general anesthesia aims to safely secure the airway and maintain adequate ventilation to deliver oxygen to the vital organs, maintaining homeostasis even during surgery. Despite its clinical importance, anesthesiologists often encounter difficulties in properly managing respiration during the perioperative period, leading to severe respiratory complications. In this year's JA symposium, 5 editorial board members of Journal of Anesthesia (JA) who are experts in the field of respiratory management in anesthesia discussed the following topics: quitting smoking before surgery: exposure to passive smoke is damaging to children, ventilator-associated pneumonia, high inspiratory oxygen concentration and lung injury, aspiration pneumonia, and postoperative respiratory management strategy in patients with obstructive sleep apnea...

OBJECTIVES: Significant advances in laryngotracheal reconstruction over the last few decades have revolutionised the management of paediatric patients with complex congenital or acquired airway stenosis. The primary aim of laryngotracheal reconstruction has focused primarily on airway and surgery specific outcomes, often at the expense of voice, as well as swallowing function, which are all intricately related. There is currently a paucity of data on swallowing outcome. The goal of this paper is to review and discuss the existing research on the impact of laryngotracheal on swallowing...

Pediatric obstructive sleep apnea, characterized by partial or complete obstruction of the upper airway during sleep, is associated with multiple adverse neurodevelopmental and cardiometabolic consequences. It is common in healthy children and occurs with a higher incidence among infants and children with craniofacial anomalies. Although soft-tissue hypertrophy is the most common cause, interplay between soft tissue and bone structure in children with craniofacial differences may also contribute to upper airway obstruction...

INTRODUCTION: Primary nocturnal enuresis (PNE) is a challenging condition for physicians, patients and families. Although the etiology remains unclear, sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) and sleep apnea have been suggested to play an important role. Recent research has suggested a potential therapeutic benefit of adenotonsillectomy (T&A) and surgical management of upper airway obstruction in the treatment of PNE. OBJECTIVE: The aim was to conduct a systematic review of relevant literature to determine the effectiveness of T&A in treating children aged 2-19 years with PNE...

A retropharyngeal abscess is a collection of pus located behind the posterior pharyngeal wall. Main symptoms include torticoli, pyrexia and odynodysphagia. It can be secondary to upper airway infections, pharyngeal penetrating trauma or idiopathic. Complications are rare, but may be life-threatening due to airway obstruction or infection's spread to the surrounding structures. Surgery is conducted in case of abscess > 2 cm on CT scan images, complication or worsening of the symptoms. This article presents a clinical case with literature review...

Background: Perioperative respiratory adverse events (PRAE) remain the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the paediatric population. This double-blinded randomized control trial investigated whether inhaled salbutamol premedication decreased the occurrence of PRAE in children identified as being at high risk of PRAE. Methods: Children with at least two parentally reported risk factors for PRAE undergoing elective surgery were eligible for recruitment. They were randomized to receive either salbutamol (200 µg) or placebo prior to their surgery and PRAE (bronchospasm, laryngospasm, airway obstruction, desaturation, coughing and stridor) were recorded...
