81. Effect of Shortening the Palatal Extension of the Mouthguard on the Degree of Satisfaction of Water Polo Players

the mouthguard just after each training session or after each match. Degree of discomfort regarding the gag reflex while using the mouthguard [ Time Frame: Weeks 1-4 ] The degree of discomfort regarding the gag reflex while using the mouthguard was assessed by asking the question "How much do you think wearing the mouthguard causes a gag reflex?" using a 0-10 point scale (considering 0= Not at all to 10= very much). Players rated the mouthguard just after each training session or after each match. Degree

Patients will receive coffee in a Styrofoam cup at a temperature of 125 degree Fahrenheit or less. Coffee will be offered to the patient in the PACU once the patient's gag reflex has been restored following their procedure. Volume of estimated coffee consumption will be measured using a sample scale (with a maximum of 300mL of coffee offered) No Intervention: Patients not receiving coffee postoperatively Patients who self-identify as coffee drinkers and do not receive coffee postoperatively Outcome

86. Acoustic and Perceptual Markers of Dysarthria in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

lateral sclerosis (ALS) which involves the degeneration of both systems. ALS patients will be gathered in clinical groups according to electromyogram (EMG) and clinical signs observed in the bulbar site. UMN signs are defined as jaw clonus, gag reflex and pseudobulbar features (lability). LMN signs are defined as lingual atrophy and fasciculations. The dysarthria will be compared to dysarthria of patients involving an exclusive UMN system degeneration (in primitive lateral sclerosis) and an exclusive (...) degeneration on one side and LMN degeneration on the other side. The investigators will compare acoustic and perceptual features between the recorded speech of different clinical groups. Clinical groups will be made according to clinical signs and EMG. The clinical signs for UMN involvement in the bulbar region are: gag reflex, jaw clonus, pseudobulbar features (lability). The clinical signs for LMN involvement are: lingual atrophy and fasciculation. The population will be composed by groups of ALS-LMN

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.

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

engorgement. These complications can be minimised by avoiding Combitube™ use with oesophageal pathology, ensuring loss of gag reflex before insertion, using minimum cuff inflation volumes, using the small adult size (SA – 37F), applying the “Urtubia manoeuvre” 87 (bend tip up before insertion) and using a laryngoscope. The EasyTube® is a relatively new variant of the Combitube™ which has a non-latex cuff, an airway suitable for flexible bronchoscope insertion, and a single lumen distal tube (...) and emergency anaesthetic procedures. 61 The ProSeal™ serves as a rescue device for failed intubation 41 in known or unexpected difficult airways. It is also useful for establishing an airway during resuscitation in profoundly unconscious patients with absent glossopharyngeal and laryngeal reflexes when tracheal intubation is not possible. The ProSeal™ can be used with the Aintree catheter and flexible bronchoscope as a conduit for endotracheal intubation in adults 62 , but the disposable version
