The skills intubating and ventilating a patient using diferent techniques and quipment are outlined in this chapter. In Special procedures you can read and learn about single lung ventilation, jet ventilation, retrograde intubation and tracheostomi.
An elderly man who was hit by a car presents with an incidental finding on CT which concerns the otolaryngology staff enough to advise awake intubation for the his long bone repair. Though the anesthesia staff remains unconvinced, PEAE reassured all parties that airway managment after anesthetic induction is safe.Watch
In this video a giant laryngocele is opened and resected.Watch
At the end of surgery, a patient with a NIMs tube in place will remain intubated. The anesthesia team is asked to "change the tube out". The NIMs is exchanged for a standard ETT using a 19Fr Airway Exchange catheter.Watch
A man with a dental abscess extending into the neck requires a emergency surgical airway after the hypopharynx fills with pus.Watch
This video demonstrates double lumen tube intubation using King Vision video laryngoscope.Watch
In this video Michael S. Kristensen and Wendy H. Teoh shows how to use ultrasound to rule out an intraoperative pneumothorax.Watch
In this Video Michael S. Kristensen and Wendy H. Teoh shows how to locate the trachea and cricothyroid membrane using ultrasound.Watch
This video describes retrograde intubation step by step. It complements the article written by Katie Normand, MD, in this newsletter. Watch to learn more about retrograde intubation, a useful technique to master to obtain a secure airway when conventional methods fail.Watch
In this video, you can see the completion of surgical tracheostomy in the intubated patient. The standard tracheal tube is replaced by the tracheostomy tube.Watch
EMS endotracheal intubation helps when using the BURP manoeuvre or "backward, upward, rightward pressure". Paramedics should be familiar with this to help with their intubationWatch
Exchange of a tracheostomy tube for a reinforced tracheal tube is a common manouvre. This video shows the procedure from a unique perspective. Watch the procedure via a fiberscope which is being used to "railroad" the new tracheal tube into place.Watch
In this video a hunsaker mono-jet tube and a Monsoon ventilator were used for mid-tracheal jet ventilation on a patient having vocal cord surgery.Watch
This patient presented to the emergency department with 5 hours of progressive swelling of the tongue. She had minimal respiratory distress. After examination by an otolaryngologists she was classed as progressing from Type 2 to Type 3 Angioneurotic edema, and the decision was made to intubate her airway in the operating room.Watch
A Supraglottic airway is used for anesthetic management during a tracheostomy. This procedure eliminates fire risk. In this case a bronchoscope is used to watch tracheostomy progress.Watch
After intubation a tracheostomy was performed. During the initial placement of the tracheostomy tube, no ETT was seen in the trachea. The diagnosis of a false passage was made, and the ETT repositioned.Watch
This is a typical change of a tracheal stoma airway device from a rigid cannula to a flexible, wire reinforced tube. The patient is anesthetized.Watch
