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.
