Tracheal migration during laparoscopic cholecystectomy
During laparoscopic surgery pneumoperitonium will be created. This increases the intra- abdominal pressure and pushes the diaphragm cephalad. This may result in endotracheal tube advancing deeper and may end up going end bronchial.
Depth of insertion of endotracheal tube in children- Fibrotic assessment
2010-01-01 Priya L
The pre-existing formulae used for tracheal tube fixation length has been evaluated using fibrotic bronchoscope and tried to reach a new formula for Indian children aged between 2-10 years.
Adding Clonidine to spinal bupivacaine effect on postop morphine requirement in ACL reconstruction
2009-01-01 Vimal Bharadwaj
Several additives have been used by investigators in order to increase the duration of action of spinal anaesthesia. In this study clonidine was used as an additive and its effect on postoperative pain relief was evaluated. The morphine consumption in the first 24 hours of postoperative period is evaluated.
Postoperative sore throat and hoarseness of voice with three prototypes of laryngeal mask airway
2008-01-01 Kiran BR
Use of LMA is found to be associated with laryngopharyngeal morbidity like sore throat and hoarseness of voice. There are several modifications in LMA and in this study 3 prototypes of LMA are used in controlled conditions. The incidence and severity of sore throat and hoarseness of voice is assessed.
LMA versus Trachlight comparison of tracheal intubation with MILS
2007-01-01 Arushi Gupta
Manual inline stabilization (MILS) is applied during tracheal intubation in patients suspected with cervical spine injury. As the cervical spine movement is limited with MILS. Direct laryngoscopy and intubation is difficult at times. In this study intubation was performed either with intubating LMA or using Trachlight.
Comparison of two techniques of LMA insertion- is reverse technique is better than standard
2006-01-01 Shailaza Khara
Insertion of LMA is done using index finger guiding it along the hard palate. In this study the standard technique has been compared with reverse technique. In the reverse technique LMA is inserted like a oropharyngeal airway. The proper fit and the fibrotic evaluation done. Postoperative sore throat and hoarseness of voice has been evaluated.
Intubation through LMA- comparison of blind technique with trachlight guided intubation
2005-01-01 Fiona Patrod
Intubating LMA has been introduced to clinical practice for assisting intubation in difficult airway situations. Blind passage of tube is commonly done and airway.
