Nasotracheal intubation may be accomplished in a blind fashion (i.e. without perform- ing laryngoscopy) in the emergency setting if the pa- tient is breathing spontaneously. Nasotracheal intubation is contraindicated in patients with coagulopathy, intranasal abnormalities, sinusitis, extensive facial fractures or basal skull fractures. The tracheas of all patients with failed blind intubation via the iLMA were successfully intubated with the aid of a flexible bronchoscope introduced via the iLMA. 47 The combination of the iLMA and fiberscope-assisted tracheal intubation via the device is a powerful technique to manage challenging airways. With the iLMA, a stable airway can be.
Difficult intubation occurs relatively commonly in association with general anaesthesia. Its true incidence is unknown but is estimated to be 1–3%. 1 Approximately half of all cases are not predicted. 1 A difficult intubation can be anticipated in a number of circumstances including a previous history of difficulty with intubation, syndromes known to be associated Cited by: There were no symptoms or signs of injury to the tongue in any of the patients either immediately after intubation nor on the first post‐operative day. Discussion Orotracheal fibreoptic intubation, both with 1 6 – 11 and without 1 12 – 19 intubating airways, is a widely practised and widely taught by: The National Practitioner Database (NPDB) is an electronic repository of all payments made on behalf of physicians in connection with medical liability settlements or judgments as well as adverse peer review actions against licenses, clinical privileges, and professional society memberships of physicians and other health care Blind tracheal intubation via the laryngeal mask has been reported and it is recognized as one of the alternative approaches for tracheal intubation in the ASA difficult airway management algorithm. However, the Difficult Airway Society guidelines draw attention to the fact that the classic LMA is not designed for this purpose and does not.
