Rescue techniques when intubation fails Non-invasive r r r r Continued mask ventilation Blind intubation (usually more successful via the nose) LMA; perhaps used as a conduit to intubation Combitube® (a blindly-placed double-lumen tube through which ventilation may be achieved regardless of its location: trachea or esophagus (provided the vocal cords are open)) r Lighted stylet (a lighted malleable stylet inside an ETT and used to identify the trachea by a pretracheal glow in the neck) r Fiberoptic intubation (with or without LMA as a conduit) r Intubating stylet or tube changer (more malleable than an ETT and may include a lumen through which oxygen can be insufflated into the lungs while attempting to pass the ETT) r Retrograde intubation (a wire placed via the cricothyroid membrane is advanced into the nose or mouth, then used as a guide for intubation) – not all that non-invasive and not all that often successful.
Place the third finger on the mentum and pull the chin upward. ) (Fig. 2). Airway management techniques (iv) Then ventilate the patient’s lungs with a self-inflating bag, Mapleson or anesthesia machine circle system. Keep inflation pressures to the minimum required to ventilate the lungs, in an effort to prevent inflation of the stomach. What to do when mask–ventilation proves to be difficult: r Reposition. Make sure the mandible is being pulled anteriorly. r Add a second person to try two-handed mask–ventilation.
Some can also provide a report from a recent electronic interrogation that specifies proper function and remaining battery life. More often than not, we do not have that information. A chest radiograph can reveal pacer make and model, as well as lead location. In symptomatic (lightheaded spells, palpitations, hypotension) or in pacer-dependent patients, a pacemaker interrogation (by a specialist with proprietary communication equipment) may be necessary. If this is not an option, a current ECG might be helpful, if it demonstrates pacer spikes in appropriate locations.
