Management of a patient with a difficult airway has undergone significant changes in recent years, with the introduction of both new guidelines and equipment. Chapters cover basic topics such as recognition of a difficult airway and general principles of management and then move onto morecomplicated topics such as the 'anticipated' and 'unanticipated' difficult airway scenarios. New equipment is outlined and reviewed, and a chapter focuses on extubation and its importance. The book also includes a chapter on management in common clinical settings and a separate chapter coverspaediatric airway management. This book summarises the most up-to-date literature in a style that has direct clinical application to busy healthcare professionals. Designed to give readers a greater insight into the management of difficult airway as a clinical entity, this pocketbook is the ideal easy reference guide.
Mansukh Popat is Consultant Anaesthetist in the Nuffield Department of Anaesthetics at John Radcliffe Hospital, and Honorary Senior Clinical lecturer at Oxford University, Oxford, UK.
