    BMJ Case Rep 2018; 11(1)Mohanty PK, Som TK, … Satapathy AK
  • Difficult intubation in neonates has innumerable aetiologies. It especially poses a formidable challenge to save a newborn baby immediately after birth where antenatal details are unavailable. A late preterm neonate was born limp and apnoeic. Several attempts to intubate the baby were unsuccessful. Possibility of subglottic obstruction was considered. The baby died of severe perinatal asphyxia. A…
  • Ultrasound use in the pediatric airway: the time has come. [Journal Article]
    A A Case Rep 2014; 2(3):23-6Dalesio NM, Kattail D, … Greenberg RS
  • Advancements in ultrasonography and increasing familiarity with its use in the operating room (vascular access and regional neural blockade) suggest its feasibility as an adjunct in pediatric airway evaluation and intervention. We report 3 cases demonstrating the usefulness of ultrasound techniques in this setting. We show key elements of airway anatomy, noninvasive observation of vocal cord moti…
  • Successful use of rocuronium and sugammadex in an anticipated difficult airway scenario. [Case Reports]
    Anaesth Intensive Care 2010; 38(2):390-2McTernan CN, Rapeport DA, Ledowski T
  • Neuromuscular blocking agents are often avoided in anticipated difficult airway scenarios. However to facilitate jet ventilation, muscle relaxants are useful. We report a case of a potentially threatened airway in a 21-year-old with a large infraglottic pedunculated polyp. In this case rocuronium was used on induction to facilitate subsequent jet ventilation and periglottic laser ablation of the …
