    Failed laryngoscopy and intubation is associated with potentially severe morbidity. Although there are many alternative tracheal intubation aids, the intubating lightwand has been recommended as a first option in patients with failed or difficult intubation. This report highlights successful...

  • Aspiration of dead space allows isocapnic low tidal volume ventilation in acute lung injury. Relationships to gas exchange and mechanics. De Robertis, E.; Servillo, G.; Tufano, R.; Jonson, B. // Intensive Care Medicine;Sep2001, Vol. 27 Issue 9, p1496 

    Objective: In acute lung injury (ALI) mechanical ventilation damages lungs. We hypothesised that aspiration and replacement of dead space during expiration (ASPIDS) allows normocapnic ventilation at higher end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) and reduced tidal volume (VT), peak and plateau pressures...

  • Comparison of Laryngeal Mask Supreme and Soft Seal for airway management in several positions. Komasawa, Nobuyasu; Ueki, Ryusuke; Fujii, Akari; Samma, Aoi; Nakagawa, Masashi; Nishi, Shin-ich; Kaminoh, Yoshiroh // Journal of Anesthesia;2011, Vol. 25 Issue 4, p535 

    Purpose: In emergency situations, rescuers occasionally must secure the airway while the patient is in a position other than the ideal supine position. We hypothesized that the laryngeal mask airway Supreme (Supreme) may be useful for emergent airway management in several positions and compared...
