Difficult intubation in pregnancy


Biro, P (2011). Difficult intubation in pregnancy. Current Opinion in Anaesthesiology, 24(3):249-254.

Abstract

A scenario-oriented approach to the problem of difficult intubation in pregnant patients leads to the recognition of the unpredicted difficult or failed intubation as the main concern. The appropriate means to cope with this rare but life-threatening complication lies in a gradual employment of principles beginning with preferential application of regional anaesthesia techniques, followed by proceeding according to locally adapted simple and comprehensive failed intubation algorithms, design of a suitable difficult airway cart that contains only a few but well chosen items and by implementation of a continuous and mandatory training program to which all personnel are subjected to participate in regular intervals.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
