101. Feasibility and Associated Limitations of Office-Based Laryngeal Surgery Using Carbon Dioxide Lasers. (PubMed)

before and after surgery.Among the 40 patients included in this study (28 men [70%] and 12 women [30%]; median [range] age, 56 [29-83] years), median follow-up time was 6.5 months (range, 1-21 months). 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

102. Collet-Sicard Syndrome With Hypoglossal Nerve Schwannoma: A Case Report (PubMed)

Collet-Sicard Syndrome With Hypoglossal Nerve Schwannoma: A Case Report Collet-Sicard syndrome is a rare syndrome that involves paralysis of 9th to 12th cranial nerves. We report an uncommon case of schwannoma of the hypoglossal nerve in a 39-year-old woman presented with slurred speech, hoarse voice, and swallowing difficulty. Physical examination revealed decreased gag reflex on the right side, decreased laryngeal elevation, tongue deviation to the right side, and weakness of right trapezius

108. Clinical Predictors of Oro-esophageal Tube Feeding Success in Brain Injury Patients With Dysphagia (PubMed)

into two groups, based on the OE tube training success. Clinical factors assessed included age, cause of brain lesion, gag reflex, cognitive function and reasons for OE tube training failure.Of the 76 cases enrolled, 56 study patients were assigned to the success group, with the remaining 20 in the failure group. There were significant differences between these two groups in terms of age, gag reflex, ability to follow commands, and the score of Korean version of Mini-Mental Status Examination (K-MMSE (...) ). Location of the brain lesion showed a borderline significance. Multivariable analysis using logistic regression revealed that age, cause of brain lesion, gag reflex, and K-MMSE were the main predictors of OE tube training success.A younger age, impaired gag reflex and higher cognitive function (specifically a K-MMSE score ≥19.5) are associated with an increased probability of OE tube training success in dysphagic patients.

lignocaine have similar efficacy as topical anaesthetics in fiberoptic bronchoscopy but patients preferred the nebulized route. Noitasaeng concluded in their study that spraying lidocaine took less time to start the procedure, with greater ease of instrumentation, less incidence of hypersecretion, less gag reflex, and smooth operation during the procedure but patients preferred nebulized lidocaine administration. At the investigators' center, it has been a routine practice to perform flexible

cases of traumatic brain injury in minimally conscious state were enrolled in the study. After hemodynamic stability, bromocriptine was given at paediatric dose of 3.75 mg/d and adult dose of 7.5 mg/d. It was administered through a naso-gastric (NG) feeding tube in the patients with minimally conscious state, then changed to oral route after proper swallowing and good gag reflex were ensured in the patient. The drug was slowly reduced over three weeks after neurological improvement in the patients

117. Emergency Airway Management Part 1: Optimizing the basics

) If simple airway positioning is not sufficient, insert an oropharyngeal or a nasopharyngeal airway. Frequently, more than one is required. It is reasonable to place 2 nasopharyngeal airways and an oropharyngeal airway at the same time time to facilitate bag valve mask ventilation. Oropharyngeal airway Ensure that an oropharyngeal airway is appropriate for the patient. The patient should be unconscious, without a gag reflex. To choose the correct sized airway, place one end at the tip of the chin (...) reserved for the end of algorithms, as rescue devices, they can also be used early in the algorithm as the primary means of ventilation. (Braude 2007; Mosier 2015) The LMA can only be placed in patients without airway reflexes – the same patients who will tolerate an oral airway. You can use medications to facilitate LMA placement. Darren Braude has described using classic RSI medications, but proceeding directly to an LMA rather than intubation as “rapid sequence airway”. (Braude 2007
