Episode 27: Airway Management

In this episode I review the ABA topic of airway management.  This is obviously a huge topic but in this episode I highlight key points about the components of airway management recommended by the ABA including identification of a difficult airway, management of a difficult airway, the difficult airway algorithm, different tools and adjuncts, and different types of tubes.  This will be the final post of 2016.  Thanks so much to all of you for listening and being a part of ACCRAC’s inaugural year in 2016.  Here’s wishing you a wonderful start to your 2017!

In this episode I first announce the new ACCRAC website here at ACCRAC.com.  Big thanks to Bryan Mariscalchi for his help setting it up.  I also mention the problem the last two episodes had with only playing out of one ear on earphones.  I hope I’ve cleared that problem up.  I mention a fantastic book called “Missing Microbes” by Martin Blaser, here is a link to the NY Times review: Missing Microbes

The bulk of the episode is a description of the paraglossal approach to endotracheal incubation.  Here is a youtube link to a video of the technique: Paraglossal video

Have you ever used this technique?  Do you like it?
