Anaesthesia for airway surgery | BJA Education | Oxford Academic

With the longer operating times, the number of patients decreases because fewer patients required extensive surgery. The gas insufflation is distal from the stenosis, and therefore, the technique carries a high risk of barotrauma. Usually, the patients are left to breathe spontaneously. Anaesthesia may be delivered using inhalational or intravenous agents.

The SaO 2determined by pulse lryngology, was between End-tidal oxygen concentration and pulse oximetry for monitoring oxygenation during intratracheal ventilation. Intermittent apnoea without endotracheal intubation. Small leaks may occur using these systems but they do allow gas analysis.

Perioperative Management All Journals search input. The operative field is relatively mobile, moving with respiration. One hundred eighty-eight patients The high-frequency jet stream, which provides to breaths per minute, causes a delay of the expiration of gas and prevents the lungs from being totally exhausted at the end of respiration.

Intravenous anesthetic is given, and air and oxygen are used for ventilation.

High-frequency jet ventilation–a review of its role in laryngology.

All patients were hemodynamically stable at all times mean arterial pressure between If no movement at all is required, the low-frequency jet stream can be shut off for a short time. As a result of the design oaryngology the angle of insertion of the cannulas, the entering gas streams do not hit the opposite wall of the jet laryngoscope but are directed toward the center of the distal end of the jet laryngoscope.

If a small degree of airway obstruction develops during laryngoloby then the use of helium may reduce the work of breathing and prove a useful short-term measure. No complications due to the ventilation technique were observed. Therefore, the upper airway must remain patent. After 2 minutes, the jet laryngoscope was inserted using a protection for the teeth.

Although the pressures are low millibarthe possibility of barotrauma cannot be eliminated entirely, but none of our patients experienced barotrauma due to SHFJV with the jet laryngoscope.

General anaesthesia for upper airway endoscopy can be given via a Storz bronchoscope usually in paediatric practice. Laser safety in otolaryngology—head lwryngology neck surgery: Mask ventilation was administered until the patient emerged from anesthesia. This is a correction to: The risk of aspiration may be reduced by ensuring full reversal of neuromuscular blockade. Technical diagram of the jet laryngoscope, with arrows indicating the flow of the jet stream. A window or flap procedure as opposed to a slit approach to the trachea may reduce the frequency of problems with tracheal tube insertion.


In patients with laryngeal stenosis Cotton II and III4 respiration might be impaired to such a degree that even surgical procedures using local anesthesia might not be possible. Except in the 3 patients mentioned earlier, the SaO 2 was always more than This ladyngology usually delivered using a micro-laryngoscopy tube MLT.

High-frequency jet ventilation–a review of its role in laryngology.

The population presenting for airway surgery mainly falls into two categories. Airway trauma may be penetrating or blunt.

Postoperatively, the main areas of concern are airway obstruction, bleeding, laryngospasm, and laryngeal incompetence. The application of positive airway pressure may induce a valve effect causing gas-trapping distal to the inhaled object or may cause the object to venhilation distally into a less accessible branch of the respiratory tree.

Ensure that the tracheostomy tube is securely fixed as re-insertion is often difficult. Airway surgery demands a high level of cooperation between surgical and anaesthetic teams. Patients presenting for airway surgery frequently have coexisting medical problems often smoking-related ; they may require optimization before veentilation.
