OBJECTIVES: Neonatal intubation is a difficult skill to learn and teach. If an attempt is unsuccessful, the intubator and instructor often cannot explain why. This study aims to review videolaryngoscopy recordings of unsuccessful intubations and explain the reasons why attempts were not successful. STUDY DESIGN: This is a descriptive study examining videolaryngoscopy recordings obtained from a randomised controlled trial that evaluated if neonatal intubation success rates of inexperienced trainees were superior if they used a videolaryngoscope compared with a laryngoscope...

IMPORTANCE: National attention has focused on the importance of handoffs in medicine. Our practice during airway patient handoffs is to communicate a patient-specific emergency plan for airway reestablishment; patients who are not intubatable by standard means are at higher risk for failure. There is currently no standard classification system describing airway risk in tracheotomized patients. OBJECTIVE: To introduce and assess the interrater reliability of a simple airway risk classification system, the Connecticut Airway Risk Evaluation (CARE) system...

OBJECTIVE: To compare effects of anesthetic induction with midazolam-propofol or midazolam-etomidate on intraocular pressure (IOP), pupillary diameter (PD), pulse rate, blood pressure, and respiratory rate in clinically normal dogs. ANIMALS: 18 dogs. PROCEDURES: Dogs undergoing ophthalmic surgery received midazolam (0.2 mg/kg, IV) and either propofol or etomidate (IV) until intubatable. For all dogs, results of physical examinations, ophthalmic examinations of the nonoperated eye, and preanesthetic blood analyses were normal...

INTRODUCTION: We describe a system of scenario-based training using simple mannequins under realistic circumstances for the training of pre-hospital care providers. METHODS: A simple intubatable mannequin or student volunteers are used together with a training version of the equipment used on a routine basis by the pre-hospital care team (doctor + paramedic).Training is conducted outdoors at the base location all year round. The scenarios are led by scenario facilitators who are predominantly senior physicians...

This study aimed to develop statistical models describing the learning of endotracheal intubation (ETI). We collected data from 100 subjects undergoing ETI training with intubatable medical models and manikins (airway trainers). Trainees initially viewed a video about ETI and an instructor demonstrated the technique. Subjects then made up to 17 supervised trials. Each trial was scored as a success or failure; this score was the primary outcome used in analyses. Random effects and population-averaged logit models, and a learning model intended to quantify the relative contributions of failed and successful trials to the learning process, were fitted to the data...

Surgical access for nutrition is required in a variety of pediatric disorders. In some, the presence of gastroesophageal reflux, poor gastric emptying, and risks for fundoplication favor the use of a jejunostomy. The significant problems associated with the simple loop jejunostomy can be avoided by using the Roux-en-Y configuration. The stoma can be fashioned either Brook-style (intubatable) or Stamm-style (modified Maydl, permanently intubated). Both types are used at the authors' institution and are compared in this retrospective review...
