INTRODUCTION: The obesity epidemic is reflected by increasing numbers of morbidly obese patients being admitted to intensive care units (ICUs). These are complicated patients whose care involves many diagnostic and treatment challenges. We are presenting a fatal case of super obesity, hypoventilation, and multi-organ failure known as malignant obesity hypoventilation syndrome (MOHS). CASE PRESENTATION: 35 year old African American gentleman with a body mass index (BMI) of 115 kg/m(2) presented to the hospital with respiratory distress...

INTRODUCTION: An emergency surgical airway (ESA) is widely recommended for securing the airway in critically ill patients who cannot be intubated or ventilated. Little is known of the frequency, clinical circumstances, management methods, and outcomes of hospitalized critically ill patients in whom ESA is performed outside the emergency department or operating room environments. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all adult patients undergoing ESA in our intensive care units (ICUs) and other hospital units from 2008 to 2012 following activation of our difficult airway management team (DAMT)...

Management of the difficult airway is an important, but as yet poorly-studied, component of intensive care management. Although there has been a strong emphasis on prediction and intubation of the difficult airway, safe extubation of the patient with a potentially difficult airway has not received the same attention. Extubation is a particularly vulnerable time for the critically ill patient and, because of the risks involved and the consequences of failure, it warrants specific consideration. The Royal College of Anaesthetists 4th National Audit Project highlighted differences in the incidence and consequences of major complications during airway management between the operating room and the critical care environment...

Late presentation of congenital diaphragmatic hernia is 5-30% of all congenital diaphragma hernia cases. It can present as Morgagni, Bochdalek and paraesophageal hernia. Misdiagnosis can result in significant morbiditiy. A 17-month-old girl presented with vomiting and abdominal pain. On physical examination, circulatory disturbance, cyanosis, abdominal distantion were present. Her O2 saturation was 60% and she was tachycardic (180 bpm) and tachypneic (58 bpm) with hypotension (60/35 mmhg). Patient's heart and mediastinum were shifted into the right hemithorax on the chest X-ray...

With a rising incidence of obesity in the United States, anesthesiologists are faced with a larger volume of obese patients coming to the operating room as well as obese patients with ever-larger body mass indices (BMIs). While there are many cardiovascular and endocrine issues that clinicians must take into account when caring for the obese patient, one of the most prominent concerns of the anesthesiologist in the perioperative setting should be the status of the lung. Because the pathophysiology of reduced lung volumes in the obese patient differs from that of the ARDS patient, the best approach to keeping the obese patient's lung open and adequately ventilated during mechanical ventilation is unique...

Klippel-Feil syndrome (KFS) has a classical triad that includes short neck, low hair line and restriction in neck motion and is among one of the congenital causes of difficult airway. Herein, we present a 26-day, 3300g newborn with KFS who was planned to be operated for correction of an intestinal obstruction. She had features of severe KFS. Anesthesia was induced by inhalation of sevoflurane 2-3% in percentage 100 oxygen. Sevoflurane inhalation was stopped after 2min. Her Cornmack Lehane score was 2 and oral intubation was performed with 3...

Hydromorphone, unlike other opioids associated with histamine release, has never been reported to cause angioedema. We report a rare case of hydromorphone-induced angioedema in a 34-year-old woman with history of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism who presented with leg swelling and pain after trauma. Hydromorphone was administered with subsequent rapid development of stridor and edematous changes of the tongue, uvula, and surrounding mucosa. The difficult airway response team was activated, and the airway was secured by emergent awake fiberoptic intubation in the operating room...

Susan E Becker
BACKGROUND: Traditional sedation for mechanically ventilated patients causes delirium, which increases the patients' length of stay while hospitalized. When extubation is attempted, these medications must be discontinued because of the side effect of respiratory depression, leaving patients anxious and agitated, delaying extubation and prolonging the need for mechanical ventilation. Dexmedetomidine is a safe alternative sedative that does not cause delirium or respiratory depression. During the weaning process, dexmedetomidine can be continued, allowing the patient to remain calm and successfully extubated...

We report a child with vocal cord adhesion encountered during induction of anesthesia. A 4-month-old girl was scheduled for bilateral lip plasty. She was intubated for one week due to pneumonia at the age of 3 days. Hoarseness and stridor appeared just after extubation. Although laryngo-fiberoptic examination had been tried several times, otorhinologists could not find any abnormality. We once decided to postpone the operation because of severe stridor. However, laryngofiberoptic examination could not reveal any abnormality, and we rescheduled the operation...

Vallecular cyst is uncommon but well-recognized cause of upper airway obstruction in newborn and infants. We hereby present anesthetic management of a case of vallecular cyst in an infant posted for excision and marsupialization. A 4-month-old female infant weighing 3.5 kg presented with inspiratory stridor progressively worsening over 2 months. Anesthesia plan was to carry out inhalational induction maintaining spontaneous respiration and keeping tracheostomy as standby option. In this case, laryngoscopy was challenging due to the size and extent of the cyst thus necessitating gentle laryngoscopy to prevent cyst rupture and pulmonary aspiration...
