OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of Cormack and Lehane grade on the Intubating Laryngeal Mask Airway (LMA-Fastrach) using in women. STUDY DESIGN: Open prospective study. PATIENTS: The study included 115 scheduled gynaecologic surgery women. METHODS: An LMA-Fastrach was systematically performed in patients with a Cormack's grade > or =3 or when Arne's score was > or =7 whatever the Cormack. After induction of anaesthesia and neuromuscular blockade, Cormack's grade was assessed and LMA-Fastrach was inserted...

BACKGROUND: The cuffed oropharyngeal airway (COPA) is a device which has already been demonstrated to be suitable for anaesthetized adult patients undergoing either spontaneous or mechanical ventilation. There are few reports on the use of the COPA in children. In this study, the authors assessed the COPA in paediatric patients undergoing minor surgery. METHODS: The same anaesthesiologist inserted the COPA in 40 consecutive paediatric patients, ASA I and II, aged 1...

Verification of the proper placement of a tracheal tube by capnography in rapid sequence induction can lead to aspiration if the patient is ventilated with the tube in the esophagus. In this study we have associated the capnography with the esophageal detector device as modified by Nunn. In 49 patients, two endotracheal tubes were introduced, one in the esophagus and the other in the trachea. An anesthesiologist, unaware of which tube is in the trachea, squeezed the bulb of the esophageal detector device, attached it to the sidestream of the capnography and the endotracheal tubes, then released it...

The first 2000 incidents reported to the Australian Incident Monitoring Study were analysed with respect to the incidence and circumstances of problems with endotracheal intubation; 85 (4%) indicated difficulties with intubation. One third of these were emergency cases, one third involved an initially unassisted trainee and one fifth were outside normal working hours. Failure to predict a difficult intubation was reported in one third of the cases, with another quarter presenting serious difficulty despite preoperative prediction...
