62. Nasopharyngeal airway (NPA)

is to be sized correctly in patients: if the airway is too short it will fail to separate the soft palate from the pharynx and if too long it can pass into the larynx and aggravate cough and gag reflexes ( ). The NPA primarily acts as a 'splint' which maintains patency of the airway, or keeps the tongue from falling back on the posterior pharyngeal wall and occluding the airway, therefore preventing airway obstruction, hypoxia and asphyxia ( ). NPAs are generally well tolerated by conscious children

to swallow or observe the swallowing process. Ask the parent/carer if there are any notable changes. Observe the swallowing process to check the child or young person's ability to do so, any pain experienced, or pooling/dribbling of secretions. If there are any doubts about the swallow and gag reflex, the child or young person should be referred to a speech and language therapist for further assessment. Lips and corner of the mouth Observe the appearance of tissue. It should be smooth, pink and moist

65. Shark Fin morphology recognized only by EM physician

with no clinical information and my immediate response was: "Shark fin! This patient is likely post-ROSC or peri-ROSC, right? LAD occlusion." I then sent it to Dr. Smith who said: "Just another shark fin. Should be obvious." The cath lab was activated immediately based on this ECG. iStat labs revealed hypokalemia of 2.2 mEq/L and pH 7.08 (VBG). He was given 300 mg rectal ASA and loaded with 4000U heparin. Soon after establishing a perfusing rhythm, the patient was gagging and coughing against the endotracheal (...) tube indicating intact brainstem reflexes. He had recurrent VFib several times requiring defbrillation with ROSC each time. Epinephrine drip was added for additional inotropy. The cardiology team arrived and another repeat ECG was obtained: Similar to first ECG. It has been 20 minutes since sustained ROSC, therefore the findings are likely not simply due to low flow during arrest (assuming the patient has had at least several minutes of at least decent coronary perfusion pressure, and this patient

67. Low-dose Succinylcholine to Facilitate Laryngeal Mask Airway Insertion: A Comparison of Two Doses. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Low-dose Succinylcholine to Facilitate Laryngeal Mask Airway Insertion: A Comparison of Two Doses. Around the world, the use of the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) is becoming more common for different surgeries accounting for it being the dominant choice of airway in numerous surgeries. Although propofol is known to blunt the laryngeal reflexes often patient movement, coughing, and gagging occur on insertion. This study aims to identify the optimum dose of succinylcholine required to facilitate (...) hospital in Southern India.Patients were induced with 2 mg/kg of propofol, after 2 μg/kg of fentanyl. The study drug was given after loss of consciousness. After 60 s, a classic LMA was inserted by the standard method by a single investigator. Jaw relaxation, coughing, gagging, movement, laryngospasm, ease of insertion, number of attempts, propofol usage, and hemodynamics were assessed.Statistical methods used were analysis of variance with Bonferroni's t-test, Chi-square test, and Fisher's test.

of pethidine rescue analgesia, and the incidence of postoperative complications were all assessed. Moreover, response to gag reflex, degree of difficulty in swallowing, and parents' satisfaction were recorded.Bilateral glossopharyngeal nerve block in children presented for adeno-tonsillectomy significantly prolonged the time for the first request of rescue analgesia, compared to the control group, reaching 5.833 ± 2.667 hours (P < 0.0001). It also decreased postoperative pethidine consumption to 0.878 (...) ± 0.387 mg/kg (P = 0.0009). Moreover, it significantly decreased the postoperative FLACC score assessed two, four, six, and twelve hours after surgery, during rest and swallowing (P < 0.05). The response to gag reflex and difficulty in swallowing were also significantly decreased (P ≤ 0.0001 and 0.006, respectively). In addition, glossopharyngeal nerve block significantly increased parents' satisfaction (P = 0.0002), with no significant increase in the incidence of postoperative complications (P

69. Early postoperative oral feeding shortens first time of bowel evacuation and prevents long term hospital stay in patients undergoing elective small intestine anastomosis. (Abstract)

, postoperative care should be revised as well. Early postoperative oral feeding was studied in trauma and burn. However, there are few trials among patients after major surgeries.This randomized single-blinded controlled trial was performed on 108 patients who had small intestine anastomosis at Imam Hossein Medical Centre in 2012. The patients were randomly assigned to schedule EOF (with starting oral feeding on the first day after surgery and complete return of the Gag reflex) or TOF (with delaying oral

The sample size was set to detect of 1-minute difference in fetal delivery time between groups (two-tailed hypothesis, α = 0.05, β = 0.10). Secondary outcome measures were total operation time, intraoperative nausea, gag reflex, vomiting, pain and anxiety for those receiving regional anesthesia, postoperative pain, change in hemoglobin, postoperative analgesic requirements, nausea

72. Efficacy and safety of using premedication with simethicone/Pronase during upper gastrointestinal endoscopy examination with sedation: A single center, prospective, single blinded, randomized controlled trial. Full Text available with Trip Pro

lidocaine hydrochloride mucilage (LHM, N = 314) and premedication used in the intervention group was 80 mL simethicone/Pronase solution plus 10 mL lidocaine hydrochloride mucilage (SP/LHM, N = 296). EGD was done under sedation. Visibility scores, number of mucosal areas that needed cleansing, water consumption for cleansing, time taken for examination, diminutive lesions, pathological diagnosis, patients' gag reflex and oxygenation (pulse oximetry) were recorded.SP/LHM has significantly lower total (...) rate of diagnosis of atrophic gastritis (P = 0.014) and intestinal metaplasia (P = 0.024). There was no significant difference in gag reflex (P = 0.604) and oxygenation during the endoscopy procedure for either group of patients.Routine use of premedication with simethicone/Pronase should be recommended during EGD with sedation.© 2017 Japan Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society.

The crowns were evaluated intraorally, and a blinded examiner measured the marginal discrepancy of silicone replicas under a stereomicroscope. Intraexaminer reliability was evaluated by calculating the intraclass correlation coefficient. Data for patients' preferences and marginal discrepancies were analyzed

75. Role of Ultrasound in Laryngeal Lesions

, not all patients can tolerate the laryngoscope especially those with a sensitive gag reflex, patients with limit of jaw or neck mobility or patients suffering from stridor. It is also difficult in most infants and children . Even during laryngoscopy the exact extension of laryngeal tumor, its infiltration and invasion of the laryngeal skeleton can sometimes be hard to assess. Thus, laryngoscopy alone may not be sufficient in some cases to judge the extent of infiltrative processes or measure the exact

77. Protocolized Ventilator Weaning Verses Usual Care

and the result of a SBT. Pre-defined weaning criteria included: (1) patent upper airway; (2) ability to protect airway (defined by mental status and presence of adequate gag and cough reflexes); (3) ability to clear secretions; (4) decreasing secretion burden requiring suction not more frequently than every 2 hours; (5) level of support (FiO2 < 50%, PEEP = 5); and (6) hemodynamic stability not requiring chemical (vasopressors, inotropes) or mechanical (e.g. intra-aortic balloon pump, extracorporeal life (...) . At the end of the SBT, the RSBI was re-measured and an arterial blood gas (ABG) was obtained. In the UC group, the SBT type and extubation decision was determined by the attending intensivist on service based upon neurologic status, airway competence (gag, cough, suction requirements), and negative inspiratory force (NIF) or RSBI measurements. Extubation success was defined as remaining extubated for 48 hours without need for re-intubation or other forms of non-invasive MV. Study Design Go to Layout
