Sample text

Airway Assessment Airway management is an essential part of anesthesia practice. Problems with airway management carry significant risk of morbidity and mortality. The preoperative evaluation of the airway aims at predicting difficulties in airway management and allows the anesthesiologist to be prepared to deal with the “difficult airway,” “Difficult airway” is a somewhat broad definition and can be divided into difficult ventilation by traditional face mask, difficult direct- or videolaryngoscopy, difficult intubation, difficult supraglottic airway placement, or a difficult surgical airway.

D) Insertion technique of an oral airway. Once the airway touches the hard palate, it is rotated 180° and seated in the mouth. If a tongue depressor is used to insert an oral airway, then the oral airway is inserted with the airway’s curvature following the curvature of the patient’s airway attached to a bag-valve system (anesthesia circle system in the operating room or air-mask-bag unit; “Ambu” bag outside the operating room). Assessment of ventilation Techniques of mask ventilation There are two techniques for mask ventilation: the “one person” technique and the “two person” technique.

Supraglottic airway devices are incorporated in the ASA Difficult Airway Algorithm as rescue devices in the “cannot intubate, cannot ventilate” situation and have been shown to be effective in such scenarios on multiple occasions. Limited mouth opening and restricted atlanto-occipital joint range of motion insertion (especially fixed flexion deformity of the neck) may present difficulties during laryngeal mask airway (LMA) insertion. LMA is also not recommended for use in patients with oropharyngeal pathology.
