121. A Randomized Trial of 4% Nebulized Lignocaine vs. 10% Lignocaine Spray in Patients Undergoing Flexible Bronchoscopy

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

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

inflammation of the mucosa, which triggers copious mucus production [ ]. Gastric reflux may also cause pooling of fluid in the hypopharynx [ ]. 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. People who aspirate may have recurrent episodes of choking, coughing, or pneumonia

Reduced conscious level is also an indicator of aspiration risk. 37 The gag reflex is unreliable and insensitive as an independent predictor 26 and should only be used as part of a more detailed assessment procedure (see section 3). 38 One screening study suggests that reduced pharyngeal sensation may be associated with aspiration

Ropper suggested that instead of cuing the patients with “playing tennis” versus “relax”, Monti’s team should have asked patients “imagine playing tennis” and compared with “imagine not playing tennis”. Perhaps nothing in clinical medicine is as complex as the assessment of consciousness, thus Allan Ropper, Andrew Billings, and others(3)(13)(14)(15) all hold

) 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

Obviously not. “Okay,” I said, “let’s come up with a plan that doesn’t require you to swallow big pills all the time.
