Extubating Techniques for the Difficult Airway

Jens Tan, Javier Lasala, Jose Soliz, Jonathan Wilks, January Tsai, Teresa Moon Calderon, Shital Vachhani, Jagtar Singh Heir and Gabriel Eduardo Mena

PACU or ICU patients generally require reintubation for two main reasons-inadequate airway patency (extubation failure) and residual need for mechanical support (weaning failure). Such events are relatively common and can be associated with significant morbidity, mortality and costs.

Intubation for one lung ventilation in patients with difficult airways can be a challenge. Severely limited mouth opening restricts the use of direct laryngoscopy or video-assisted laryngoscopy. We present two patients with limited mouth opening undergoing video-assisted thoracoscopic decortication, who were successfully intubated with left-sided double-lumen endobronchial tube (DLT) using the Trachway® intubating stylet. This technique provides a safe and reliable method for DLT intubation in patients with limited mouth opening.

Treatment-Resistant Severe Hypothermia in an Infant Caused by the AirSeal® Insufflator

Corresponding author: Kiyotaka Nakagawa, MD, PhD, Vice-director, Department of Anesthesiology, Kawaguchi Municipal Medical Center, 180 Nishi-araijyuku, Kawaguchi-shi, Saitama, 333-0833, Japan

The valveless trocar system is a novel insufflator that circulates carbon dioxide in the abdominal cavity. Herein, we report an infant with severe hypothermia due to use of this insufflator. An 83-day-old infant (body weight 3862 g) with gastroesophageal reflux underwent laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication. After insufflation was initiated, his body temperature acutely dropped to 34.4 °C. Standard treatments had no effect on the patient's hypothermia.

Systemic Air Embolism during ERCP with Full Recovery

Quy Tran, Gurpreet Dhaliwal, Christopher Lee and Zohreh Steffens

Corresponding author: Quy Tran MD, Department of Anesthesiology, Harbor UCLA Medical Center, 1000 W, Carson St. Box #10, Torrance, CA 90509, California, USA

Air embolism during gastrointestinal endoscopy procedures is a rare phenomenon but can lead to a catastrophic and fatal event resulting from cardiovascular collapse and neurological injury. Oftentimes, the diagnosis is difficult because the cardiovascular and neurologic symptoms are not specific to systemic air embolism. High index of suspicion with early recognition and treatment is crucial in improving patient outcome.

Perioperative Management of Patients Refusing Blood Products

Rispoli Marco, Bizzarri Federico Tommaso, Zani Gianluca, Agnoletti Vanni, Corcione Antonio, Buono Salvatore and Fusari Maurizio

Corresponding author: Fusari Maurizio MD, Chief, Department of Anesthesia and Intensive Care, Santa Maria delle Croci Hospital, Ravenna, Italy

The Jehovah's Witnesses are best known to outsider for their refusal of blood products, even such a refusal may result in death. In years, a "bloodless surgery" was developed with the aim of avoid blood transfusions and improve patient outcome, shifting from a product-centred to a patient-centred approach. An accurate teamwork is needed to define a perioperative transfusion-alternative program, individualized for patients' characteristics and surgical procedure. The objective of this article is to review how to properly manage, in the perioperative period, patients who refuse blood transfusions.

Renal Transplantation: An Update for Anaesthetists

Emma Aitken, Richard Stevenson, Faisal Hanif, Diana Raj, Karen Stevenson and David Kingsmore

Corresponding author: Emma Aitken, Department of Renal Surgery, Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow, UK

Renal transplantation (RTx) is well established as the optimal method of renal replacement therapy (RRT); however the imbalance between organ supply and demand has led to increased numbers of organs coming from marginal donors. This, in conjunction with an increase in the number of 'marginal recipients', necessitates optimisation of other aspects of transplantation including perioperative care to maintain the excellent outcomes and survival benefit previously published in the literature.
