Background: The endotracheal
tube is considered the standard for airway control and protection during general anaesthesia especially when the airway is shared' between the anaesthetist and the surgeon.
Many studies have shown that digital balloon palpation corresponds poorly with the actual measured endotracheal
When patients requiring respiratory support are ventilated in intensive care units( ICU) for extended periods of time, bacterial adherence to the endotracheal
tube is considered the first step in developing a lung infection, or ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), said the company.
Sore throat and hoarseness are associated with different types of endotracheal
tubes regardless of ET tube cuff pressure (Jensen et al 1982, Stenqvist & Nilsson 1982, Combes et al 2001).
Microaspiration refers to aspiration of fluid, secretions and other materials that have leaked past the endotracheal
tube cuff and into the lungs - a common problem in intubation that may lead to pulmonary complications, including ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) and post-operative pneumonia.
To assure smooth passage of the endotracheal
tube over the CAEC, the tip of the tube was maintained in a bevel-down position (i.
Briefly, a balloon catheter was advanced through one nostril into the lower esophagus, and the animals were intubated with a cuffed endotracheal
tube through the other nostril.
0 millimeter endotracheal
tube, with the use of a bronchoscope, and connected her to a mechanical ventilator.
The issue, the subject of a growing debate among government ministry and agency officials and physicians, surfaced after emergency paramedics in Aomori, Akita, Yamagata and Niigata prefectures were found last fall to have unlawfully administered endotracheal
intubations on people stricken with illnesses.
The award will support research and development of a surface-modified endotracheal
tube that combines the Semprus Sustain([TM])Technology with the delivery of antimicrobials.
Plain with radio opaque line.
intubation was done with Lignocaine jelly smeared to cuff of appropriate size ET tube with cuff inflated to achieve a seal.
tube for nasal and oral intubation, with low pressure cuff size, mm 4.
Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of using BiPAP through endotracheal
tube in comatose Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) patients with hypercapnic respiratory failure.
