2). Airway management techniques (iv) Then ventilate the patient’s lungs with a self-inflating bag, Mapleson or anesthesia machine circle system. Keep inflation pressures to the minimum required to ventilate the lungs, in an effort to prevent inflation of the stomach. What to do when mask–ventilation proves to be difficult: r Reposition. Make sure the mandible is being pulled anteriorly. r Add a second person to try two-handed mask–ventilation. Use both hands to hold the mask and pull the jaw anteriorly.

A nasal trumpet can be inserted after lubrication with a local anesthetic jelly, even if the patient is awake. r If the patient has a beard, try placing an occlusive dressing (with a hole for the mouth) over the beard, or apply Vaseline to the mask. r The edentulous patient usually does better with his false teeth in place. If the patient is comatose, an oral airway may help, or stuff the cheeks with gauze to provide enough shape for the mask to seal properly. Just be sure to remove all material from the mouth when the patient is ready to resume spontaneous breathing – material left behind has been aspirated and has caused acute airway obstruction and death!

In fact, exercise tolerance alone is an excellent predictor of postoperative pulmonary complications. Obesity Obese patients present more airway management difficulties for several reasons: (i) mechanical issues related to optimal positioning; (ii) redundant pharyngeal tissue complicating laryngoscopy; (iii) many suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (and its sequelae: pulmonary hypertension/cor pulmonale); and (iv) in obese patients it can be extremely difficult or impossible to mask–ventilate the lungs due to the weight of the chest wall.
