In clinical practice, failure of proper airway management can lead to significant patient morbidity and mortality. Difficult airway management comprises a fundamental skill set for anesthesiologists and has long been recognized as one of the most challenging skills. Simulation-based training is an essential technique to establish and maintain technical and nontechnical skills for airway management. We review the evidence-based utility of simulation-based training for anesthesiologists to accquire technical and nontechnical airway mangement skills...

BACKGROUND: The unanticipated difficult airway is a potentially life-threatening event during anaesthesia or acute conditions. An unsuccessfully managed upper airway is associated with serious morbidity and mortality. Several bedside screening tests are used in clinical practice to identify those at high risk of difficult airway. Their accuracy and benefit however, remains unclear. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this review was to characterize and compare the diagnostic accuracy of the Mallampati classification and other commonly used airway examination tests for assessing the physical status of the airway in adult patients with no apparent anatomical airway abnormalities...

Managing the airway of an infant with Pierre Robin sequence (PRS) is particularly challenging for anesthesiologists. Patients with PRS have the triad of micrognathia, glossoptosis, and airway obstruction that potentially and frequently leads to difficulty with both ventilation and intubation. Thus continuous oxygenation and spontaneous ventilation during intubation are essential. We describe a new method to deliver continuous oxygen and volatile anesthetic during nasotracheal intubation in an infant with PRS...

Tracheal extubation in children with known difficult airways is associated with an increased risk of adverse events. Currently, there is no reliable measure to predict the need for emergent reintubation due to airway inadequacy. Airway exchange catheter-assisted extubation has been shown to be a useful adjunct in decreasing the risk of adverse events due to failed extubation. We report a case of using an airway exchange catheter-assisted extubation with continuous end-tidal carbon dioxide monitoring for a pediatric patient with a known difficult airway...

In cases of a difficult intubation where numerous intubation methods, including laryngoscopy, have failed, yet oral intubation is still necessary, the method of tube exchange after fiberoptic nasal intubation may be attempted. Fiberoptic nasal intubation allows intubation to be performed relatively easily when the laryngeal view grade is poor. We report a case in which our attempt at oral intubation for total maxillectomy with laryngoscopy and fiberoptic oral intubation had failed due to an unexpected difficult airway; subsequently, we successfully completed the surgery by performing fiberoptic nasal intubation to secure the airway, followed by using a tube exchanger to exchange to an oral endotracheal tube...

OBJECTIVE: An abscess of the tongue base is rare, but it can be a potentially life-threatening situation in elderly patients. CASE REPORT: A 72-year-old male patient presented with mid-anterior neck swelling, odynophagia, poor oral hygiene and severe dyspnoea. After a difficult intubation, the muscles were dissected via a submental suprahyoid approach and the abscess was drained. CONCLUSION: Poor oral hygiene may predispose elderly patients to tongue-base abscesses...

INTRODUCTION: Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is an x linked recessive disorder. Long term prognosis is ominous, with development of respiratory distress and cardiomyopathy in advanced stage of the disease and expected death in the teens-to-mid 20s due to respiratory or cardiac failure. Peri-operative management of this patients is challenging due to difficult airway anatomy (macroglossia, limited neck and mandibular mobility). Additionally, they are at risk of developing malignant hyperthermia, rhabdomyolysis and hyperkalemic cardiac arrest when exposed to halogenated inhalational anaesthetics and depolarizing muscle relaxants...

Awake fibreoptic intubation is often considered the technique of choice when a difficult airway is anticipated. However, videolaryngoscopes are being used more commonly. We searched the current literature and performed a meta-analysis to compare the use of videolaryngoscopy and fibreoptic bronchoscopy for awake tracheal intubation. Our primary outcome was the time needed to intubate the patient's trachea. Secondary outcomes included: failed intubation; the rate of successful intubation at the first attempt; patient-reported satisfaction with the technique; and any complications resulting from intubation...

The past several decades have seen tremendous growth in our understanding of best practices in simulation-based healthcare education. At present, however, there is limited infrastructure available to assist programs in translation of these best practices into more standardized educational approaches, higher quality of care, and ultimately improved outcomes. In 2014, the International Simulation Data Registry (ISDR) was launched to address this important issue. The existence of such a registry has important implications not just for educational practice but also for research...

We present a case of bronchial injury following bougie-assisted endotracheal intubation in a patient with difficult airway scheduled to undergo right percutaneous nephrolithotomy under general anaesthesia. The patient developed pleuritic pain along with right pleural effusion on the third postoperative day which was diagnosed by the anaesthesiologist who was following up the patient for airway trauma-associated complications. However, the patient was diagnosed to have a nephropleural fistula, a rare complication of supracostal access to percutaneous nephrolithotomy, which was managed successfully...

Sarcoidosis is a rare multisystemic chronic inflammatory condition. Typically, there is a big discrepancy between the patient's subjectively perceived symptoms and the presence of clinical signs. Due to the high number of potential sites of onset (e. g. larynx, lungs, heart, liver, kidneys) the affected organs may show functional restrictions that are relevant for decisions related to anesthesia. Therefore, an anesthetists working in a clinical setting should be familiar with the special needs of this patient collective...

Intubating a pediatric patient with temporomandibular joint ankylosis is a daunting task, and it becomes more challenging with limited mouth opening. Fiberoptic nasotracheal intubation technique is considered a gold standard. We describe an improvised technique of securing airway in the absence of appropriate-sized fiberoptic scope. The endotracheal tube inserted in the left nostril for maintaining depth of anesthesia was advanced under vision by the fiberoptic scope inserted into the right nostril, and with external laryngeal manipulation, the airway was secured with no complications...
