Communicating and managing the difficult airway
from Anesthesiology News
Patients designated as "difficult to intubate" are more at risk for losing their lives during both emergency and routine surgeries. Surprisingly, it is not the difficult airway itself that is most life-threatening; modern medical technology allows physicians to intubate even the most difficult of cases. Deadly mistakes often occur in the process of identifying, communicating and managing the existence of the difficult airway, especially among numerous providers.
