41. CRACKCast E192 – Airway

in doubt, you can usually find weight ranges printed on the LMA! [4] Does presence of a gag reflex correlate with ability to protect an airway? Answer: No. It is important to note that the gag reflex is actually absent normally in approximately 25% of adults. The fact that it is not present does not indicate that an individual is unable to protect their airway. To truly assess an individual’s capacity to protect their airway, consider the following factors: The patient’s ability to voluntarily swallow (...) a quick overview! Common Induction Agents Etomidate Imidazole derivative Induction Dose: 0.3 mg/kg Pros: Does not impact hemodynamics Cons: Transient adrenal suppression. Ketamine Phencyclidine derivative Induction dose: 1-2 mg/kg Pros: Reaches clinical effect rapidly within 30 seconds, nearing peak effects at 1-minute Preserves protective airway reflexes and ventilatory drive Hemodynamically neutral Bronchodilatory effects- beneficial in the asthmatic patient Cons: Laryngospasm, emergence reactions

Examination – The spatula test involves touching of the oropharynx with a tongue blade. With a negative test result, the patient gags and expels the tongue blade. With a positive test result, the patient has reflex masseter muscle spasm and bites the spatula. This test is 94% sensitive and 100% specific for tetanus. Management Aggressive supportive care Control muscle spasms Avoid unnecessary stimulation / loud noises = these can trigger severe spasms Treat spasms with benzodiazepines Diazepam – widely (...) , patients have decreased muscle tone and depressed deep tendon reflexes. Cranial nerve involvement causes alterations in facial expression, ptosis, and extraocular palsies. Respiratory failure occurs in 50% of patients. Fever is absent unless secondary infection is present. Hallmark signs: gastrointestinal, autonomic, and cranial nerve dysfunction. Bilateral cranial nerve involvement and the progression of neurologic findings should increase clinical suspicion. The diagnosis is confirmed by detection

44. Does apnoeic oxygenation reduce the risk of desaturation in patients requiring endotracheal intubation?

This involves optimal patient positioning, oxygenation techniques and optimal intubation conditions. Waiting for paralysis prevents initiation of a gag reflex upon laryngoscopy and allows maximal laryngeal exposure, increasing chances of first-pass success.5 Apnoeic oxygenation allows oxygenation and ventilation of patients during the onset phase of muscle relaxation.5 During apnoea gas exchange between the alveoli and the bloodstream still occurs.5 It is estimated that 250 mL/min of oxygen diffuse

in cardiac arrest, but in the presence of a known or suspected basal skull fracture an oral airway is preferred. It is still necessary to use head tilt and jaw support, or jaw thrust [Class B; Expert consensus opinion]. Oropharyngeal airway Oral airways should be appropriately sized and not be forcibly inserted. They should be reserved for unconscious, obtunded victims. Laryngospasm or vomiting with aspiration may result in those patients who still have a gag reflex [Class B; Expert consensus opinion

In children with significant encephalopathy at discharge, the presence of altered neurological signs (hypertonia, closed fists, abnormal movements, absence of the gag reflex and asymmetrical tonic reflex of the neck) increased the risk of death or disability [OR = 2.69 (1.09-6.67)]. Likewise, the need for tube feeding or a gastrostomy

51. Standards for Conscious Sedation in the Provision of Dental Care

clinicians and patients in deciding on the best management and care of patients who are unable to receive routine care. Selection of the most appropriate pathway must be decided by patient need and some of these may be time- specific. Some of the issues involved are anxiety, a pronounced gag reflex, a traumatic procedure, the level of patient co-operation, the nature of the clinical care required and the time needed to deliver treatment. The options should be considered carefully and the selection at any (...) treatment is to be carried out and whether this will require a different provider. Where there are particular patient needs for the management of anxiety or other aspects that affect the individual’s ability to receive dental treatment (e.g. a pronounced gag reflex), referral to another provider may be in the patient’s best interests. When referring a patient, clear referrals must be made, the guidance described by the Dental Sedation Teachers Group should be followed 8 and the responsibilities

The first picture I saw brought to mind this thought: Those girls look just like my daughter’s friend X who suffered and almost died from anorexia when she was in her teens. If I hadn’t known her and her parents and what they were all going through, but just saw her somewhere, I would probably have contacted the proper authorities. I didn’t think anything my opinion of the individual identifying as “Quackenboss” could go any lower, but I

She left critical care to put in IVs all day long in a small-town hospital. This is why I left that world.

An abnormal reflex commonly called Babinski’s sign (the large toe extends upward as the sole of the foot is stimulated in a certain way) also indicates upper motor neuron damage. Symptoms of lower motor neuron degeneration include muscle weakness and atrophy, muscle cramps, and fasciculations. To be diagnosed with ALS, people must have signs and symptoms of both upper and lower motor neuron damage

oxide/oxygen inhalation is a safe and effective technique to reduce anxiety and enhance effective communication. Its onset of action is rapid, the effects easily are titrated and reversible, and recovery is rapid and complete.

Oropharyngeal or gastric contents may be aspirated into the larynx and lower respiratory tract. Factors predisposing to aspiration include impaired consciousness, old age, impaired cough or gag reflex, and structural diseases of the airway and upper gastrointestinal tract.

physiological parameters, but early extubation in patients with a decompressive craniectomy for cerebellar infarcts can be problematic because of abnormal oropharyngeal function, lack of strong cough, and copious thick secretions. 90 The presence of a cough and gag reflex and normal eye movements may predict successful extubation. 91 Airway and Mechanical Ventilation: Recommendations 1. Maintaining normocarbia is reasonable (Class IIa; Level of Evidence C). 2. Intubation may be considered for patients (...) infarction, a decrease in level of consciousness occurs as a result of brainstem compression and therefore may include early loss of corneal reflexes and the development of miosis. Standardized definitions should be established to facilitate multicenter and population-based studies of incidence, prevalence, risk factors, and outcomes.
