By type, the endotracheal tubes segment accounted for the largest share of the infraglottic airway management devices market
The infraglottic airway management devices segment accounted for the largest share of the airway management devices market in 2018.
Nurses who had at least 2 years of critical care experience, had received advanced airway management training, were appointed as members of the hospital emergency response team, had no physical impairment on their hands at the time of the study (to be able to handle a laryngoscope), had no back pain (to take the proper position for laryngoscopy), and had normal visual acuity were included in the study.
In fact, the supraglottic airway devices play an important role in the management of patients with difficult airways, as the devices enable ventilation in patients with difficult facemask ventilation and simultaneous use as a conduit for tracheal intubation.[21],[22] Moreover, use of supraglottic airway devices during difficult airway management has been widely recommended in many practice guidelines.[6],[7],[8],[9],[10],[11],[12] In addition, this study showed that the FDAE approach significantly decreased the need for awake tracheal intubation in patients with predicted difficult airways.
The majority of participants agreed that the skills were relevant to their residency programme as follows: airway management 15(93.8%), lumbar puncture 14(87.5%), intubation 14(87.5%), bone marrow aspiration 10(62.5%), chest tube insertion 10(62.5%), pleural tap 10(62.5%), central line insertion 11(68.8%) and arthrocentesis 9(56.3%).
FFB intubation with topical anesthesia of the upper airway in an awake or sedated patient is considered by anesthesiologists as the ultimate, safe, nonsurgical technique in difficult airway management [21].
Airway management using construction of a mediastinal tracheostoma can bea sufficient treatment option.
Airway management of large MNG with compromised airway should be considered for awake endotracheal intubation with the help of flexible FOB.
Written and informed consent had been obtained with full explanation of the procedure, method of airway management including alternate techniques like submental intubation or tracheostomy if required.
Objective: To assess the effectiveness of laryngeal mask airway, endotracheal tube and oropharyngeal airway for airway management in prehospital emergency care.
