As the cornerstone of Anesthesiology practice, airway management is a procedure frequently performed by anesthesiologists as well as emergency physicians and intensivists. Since airway devices and techniques continually change, trainees must achieve proficiency with all of the variousinstruments and methods, and practitioners routinely need to update their airway skills. The Difficult Airway: A Practical Guide provides practical guidelines for improving the success rates of airway managers of all specialties who use modern airway devices and techniques. The book addresses various clinical scenarios in a user-friendly format that mimics the approach clinicians encounter at educational workshops. Sections address airway devices and techniques, awake intubation, algorithms of difficult airway management, pharmacologic adjuncts useful in airwaymanagement, equipment, preoxygenation, and patient positioning strategies to ensure effective airway management. The Difficult Airway: A Practical Guide is augmented by a DVD containing video demonstrations of airway management techniques.
