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

When children's eyelash reflex lose, jaw thrust/trapezius squeeze was applied every 15 seconds.It's considered that the depth of anesthesia was not enough, and test reaction was positive if any movements of body, limbs or toes were found at the point of test.

failure rate and its related coughing and gagging when compared with mini dose.The use of succinylcholine compared with none can facilitate LMA insertion and reduce insertion-related reflexes without significant postoperative myalgia. However, additional prospective studies with a larger sample size are required to fully evaluate the dose-dependent effect and complications of succinylcholine for LMA insertion.© Article author(s) (or their employer(s) unless otherwise stated in the text of the article (...) that succinylcholine reduced the first-attempt LMA insertion failure rate (RR, 0.22; 95% CI 0.12 to 0.43), coughing and gagging (RR, 0.26; 95% CI 0.15 to 0.45) and laryngospasm (RR, 0.14; 95% CI 0.05 to 0.39). The use of succinylcholine did not result in a significant increase of postoperative myalgia (RR, 2.58; 95% CI 0.79 to 8.44) and did not reduce the risk of postoperative sore throat (RR, 0.76; 95% CI 0.55 to 1.03).

and viscous solution (combination group, n = 170). We compared the number of pharyngeal observable sites (non-inferiority test), pain by visual analogue scale, observation time, and the number of gag reflexes between the two groups. Results The mean number of images of suitable quality taken at the observable pharyngeal sites in the spray group was 8.33 (95 % confidence interval [CI]: 7.94 - 8.72) per patient, and 8.77 (95 % CI: 8.49 - 9.05) per patient in the combination group. The difference (...) in the number of observable pharyngeal sites was - 0.44 (95 % CI: - 0.84 to - 0.03, P = 0.01). There were no differences in pain, observation time, or number of gag reflexes between the 2 groups. Subgroup analysis of the presence of sedation revealed no differences between the two groups for the number of pharyngeal observation sites and the number of gag reflexes. However, the number of gag reflexes was higher in the spray group compared to the combination group in a subgroup analysis that looked

Among the 49 procedures, 2 (4%) could not be tolerated by patients owing to severe gag reflex and laryngeal hypersensitivity, 6 (12%) could not completely evaporate lesions owing to an inadequate surgical field or laryngeal instability, and 1 (2%) led to a complication (ie, mild vocal fold wound
