ABSTRACT

Introducción: A finales del año 2019 se reportaron casos de neumonía atípica en Wuhan provocados por un nuevo coronavirus. La intubación endotraqueal puede causar contaminación del personal de salud. Las pautas recientes prefieren la videolaringoscopia porque aumenta las posibilidades de intubación y evita del contacto cercano con el paciente. Objetivos: Describir el abordaje de la vía aérea con videolaringoscopia en pacientes con COVID-19 e identificar las principales complicaciones aparecidas durante la intubación endotraqueal. Métodos: Se realizó un estudio descriptivo, transversal, en el periodo de diciembre de 2020 a febrero de 2021, en el Centro Médico Naval de la Ciudad de México. El universo estuvo conformado por 178 pacientes con COVID-19 que requirieron intubación endotraqueal. Se tomó una muestra de 103 pacientes los cuales fueron atendidos por los médicos cubanos. Resultados: Los pacientes mayores de 60 años representaron el 63,1 por ciento de los casos y el sexo masculino el 65 por ciento El 42,1 por ciento tuvieron un predictor de vía aérea difícil y el 30,1 por ciento, dos o más predictores. Se visualizó completamente la glotis en el 39,8 por ciento de los casos y, parcialmente, en un 57,3 por ciento. La intubación al primer intento se logró en el 73,8 por ciento. Las principales complicaciones encontradas fueron la desaturación (33 por ciento) y la hipotensión arterial (37,9 por ciento). Conclusiones: La videolaringoscopia podría mejorar la visualización de la apertura glótica y la intubación endotraqueal al primer intento. La desaturación y la hipotensión arterial fueron complicaciones que podrían esperarse en los pacientes con la COVID-19 durante este procedimiento(AU)


Introduction: At the end of 2019, cases of atypical pneumonia were reported in Wuhan caused by a new coronavirus. Endotracheal intubation may cause contamination of healthcare personnel. According to recent guidelines, videolaryngoscopy is preferred, because it increases the chances of intubation and avoids close contact with the patient. Objectives: To describe airway management with videolaryngoscopy in patients with COVID-19 and to identify the main complications that appeared during endotracheal intubation. Methods: A descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out, in the period from December 2020 to February 2021, at the Naval Medical Center in Mexico City. The universe consisted of 178 patients with COVID-19 who required endotracheal intubation. A sample of 103 patients was taken, who were cared for by Cuban doctors. Results: Patients older than 60 years represented 63.1 percent of the cases, while the male sex represented 65 percent. 42.1 percent had one predictor of difficult airway and 30.1 percent had two or more predictors. The glottis was visualized fully in 39.8 percent of cases and partially in 57.3 percent. Intubation on the first attempt was achieved in 73.8 percent. The main complications found were desaturation (33 percent) and arterial hypotension (37.9 percent). Conclusions: Videolaryngoscopy could improve visualization of the glottic opening and endotracheal intubation on the first attempt. Desaturation and hypotension were complications that could be expected in COVID-19 patients during this procedure(AU)

ABSTRACT

La intubación submentoniana es útil en procedimientos quirúrgicos en donde la intubación nasotraqueal está contraindicada y la intubación orotraqueal no es ideal debido a la fijación intermaxilar. Este informe describe dos pacientes masculinos que se presentaron al Hospital Nacional Rosales, en el servicio de Cirugía Maxilofacial de El Salvador, con historia de sufrir accidente de tránsito. El primer caso evidenció al examen radiológico fractura simple y desplazada de sínfisis mandibular, fractura simple huesos propios nasales y desviación del tabique nasal. El segundo caso es un paciente con fractura de sínfisis y doble cóndilo mandibular que presentaba imposibilidad a la apertura bucal. A través de la técnica del cirujano maxilofacial Hernández Altemir (España), el tubo endotraqueal atraviesa una incisión extraoral en la región submentoniana del suelo de la boca, para poder practicar reducción abierta de fracturas faciales, logrando adecuada oclusión, con mínimos cuidados posoperatorios y con una cicatriz estética. Al terminar la cirugía, la posición del tubo endotraqueal regresa a su posición original y el paciente evoluciona satisfactoriamente


Submental intubation is useful in surgical procedures where nasotracheal intubation is contraindicated and orotracheal intubation is not ideal due to intermaxillary fixation. This report describes two male patients who presented to the Rosales National Hospital, in the Maxillofacial Surgery service of El Salvador, with a history of suffering a traffic accident. The first case showed a simple and displaced fracture of the mandibular symphysis, simple nasal bone fracture and deviation of the nasal septum on radiological examination. The second case is a patient with a symphysis fracture and a double mandibular condyle that presented an inability to open the mouth. Through the technique of the maxillofacial surgeon Hernández Altemir (Spain), the endotracheal tube passes through an extraoral incision in the submental region of the floor of the mouth, in order to perform open reduction of facial fractures, achieving adequate occlusion, with minimal postoperative care and with an aesthetic scar. At the end of the surgery, the position of the endotracheal tube returns to its original position and the patient evolves satisfactorily

ABSTRACT

Abstract Perioperative morbidity and mortality are high among patients in the extremes of life undergoing anesthesia. Complications in children occur mainly as a result of airway management-related events such as difficult approach, laryngospasm, bronchospasm and severe hypoxemia, which may result in cardiac arrest, neurological deficit or death. Reports and new considerations that have changed clinical practice in pediatric airway management have emerged in recent years. This narrative literature review seeks to summarize and detail the findings on the primary cause of morbidity and mortality in pediatric anesthesia and to highlight those things that anesthetists need to be aware of, according to the scientific reports that have been changing practice in pediatric anesthesia. This review focuses on the identification of "new" and specific practices that have emerged over the past 10 years and have helped reduce complications associated with pediatric airway management. At least 9 practices grouped into 4 groups are described: assessment, approach techniques, devices, and algorithms. The same devices used in adults are essentially all available for the management of the pediatric airway, and anesthesia-related morbidity and mortality can be reduced through improved quality of care in pediatrics.


Resumen Los pacientes en extremos de la vida sometidos a anestesia tienen la más alta morbimortalidad perioperatoria. Los niños se complican principalmente por eventos derivados del manejo de la vía aérea pediátrica (VAP), como dificultad en su abordaje, laringoespasmo, broncoespasmo e hipoxemia severa, que pueden terminar en paro cardiaco, déficit neurológico o muerte. En los últimos años se han informado y retomado aspectos que cambian la práctica clínica sobre la VAP Esta revisión narrativa de la literatura busca concretar y resumir estos hallazgos sobre la primera causa de morbimortalidad en anestesia pediátrica y enfatizar en lo que los anestesiólogos deben conocer, con base en los informes científicos que vienen cambiando la práctica anestésica pediátrica. Esta revisión busca identificar las conductas "nuevas" y concretas que han surgido en los últimos 10 años, y que ayudan a disminuir las complicaciones derivadas del manejo de la VAP Se señalan y describen al menos nueve conductas agrupadas en 4 bloques: Evaluación, técnicas de abordaje, dispositivos y algoritmos. Actualmente se cuenta con prácticamente todos los dispositivos de adultos para el manejo de la VAP y con consideraciones específicas se puede mejorar la calidad de la atención y reducir la morbimortalidad anestésica en pediatría.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: El abordaje de la vía aérea del paciente bajo cirugía laparoscópica representa múltiples retos para el anestesiólogo. Objetivo: Evaluar la efectividad y seguridad de tres dispositivos supraglóticos con acceso gástrico en el abordaje de la vía aérea de pacientes bajo colecistectomía laparoscópica. Métodos: Se realizó un estudio cuasiexperimental, prospectivo, longitudinal en el Hospital Universitario "General Calixto García", entre el 2017 y 2019. Se constituyeron tres grupos de 40 pacientes, según dispositivo: máscara laríngea proseal, máscara laríngea supreme y máscara I-gel. Se estudió: tiempo de inserción, número de intentos para colocación, facilidad de inserción de la sonda nasogástrica, presión y suficiencia de sellado orofaríngeo, presión pico con neumoperitoneo y complicaciones. Las variables cualitativas se analizaron con frecuencias absolutas y relativas, y las cuantitativas con medias y desviación estándar. Para la asociación entre variables cualitativas, se utilizó la prueba de chi-cuadrado, y el análisis de varianza para la asociación entre cuantitativas y cualitativas. Se consideró significativo valor de p < 0,05. Resultados: La máscara laríngea supreme se insertó con éxito al primer intento en la mayoría de los pacientes (p = 0,004). La I-gel registró el menor tiempo de inserción (10,05 ± 1,75 seg) y la Supreme mayor facilidad para la sonda nasogástrica (p < 0,001). La mayor presión de sellado fue con la máscara laríngea proseal (30,87 ± 2,60 cmH2O). Las complicaciones fueron pocas y similares con cada uno. Conclusiones: La utilización de dispositivos supraglóticos con acceso gástrico demostró seguridad y efectividad en pacientes intervenidos por colecistectomía laparoscópica(AU)


Introduction: Airway management in the patient undergoing laparoscopic surgery presents multiple challenges for the anesthesiologist. Objective: To assess the effectiveness and safety of three supraglottic devices with gastric access in the airway management in patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Methods: A quasiexperimental, prospective and longitudinal study was carried out, between 2017 and 2019, at General Calixto García University Hospital. Three groups of forty patients were made up, according to the usage of each device: ProSeal laryngeal mask, Supreme laryngeal mask, and I-gel mask. The following variables were studied: insertion time, number of placement attempts, ease of insertion of nasogastric tube, pressure and sufficiency of oropharyngeal sealing, peak pressure with pneumoperitoneum, and complications. Qualitative variables were analyzed with absolute and relative frequencies; and quantitative variables, with means and standard deviation. For the association between qualitative variables, the chi-square test was used, while variance analysis was used for the association between quantitative and qualitative variables. A value of P< 0.05 was considered significant. Results: The Supreme laryngeal mask was successfully inserted on the first attempt in most patients (P=0.004). The I-gel mask had the shortest insertion time (10.05±1.75 seconds), while the Supreme was the easiest for the nasogastric tube (P< 0.001). The highest sealing pressure was obtained with the ProSeal laryngeal mask (30.87±2.60 cmH2O). The complications were few and similar with each device. Conclusions: The use of supraglottic devices with gastric access showed safety and effectiveness in patients who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy(AU)

ABSTRACT

Cuando los recién nacidos presentan obstrucción de la vía aérea, requieren un manejo urgente y experto para evitar la mortalidad y la morbilidad. La definición de vía aérea difícil se relaciona con problemas en la intubación endotraqueal o en la ventilación a presión positiva con bolsa y máscara o reanimador de pieza en T. El manejo debe basarse en la comprensión del mecanismo fisiopatológico responsable de la vía aérea difícil. Las causas en el recién nacido pueden ser congénitas y/o adquiridas.Se presenta el caso de una recién nacida con síndrome de Treacher-Collins tipo 1 [OMIM #154500] con una disostosis mandibulofacial, micrognatia, hipoplasia malar, paladar hendido, sin cardiopatía congénita, asociado con intubación extremadamente difícil


f newborns have an airway obstruction, they require urgent and expert management to avoid mortality and morbidity. The definition of difficult airway includes problems in endotracheal intubation or positive pressure ventilation with bag and mask or T-piece resuscitator. Management should be based on an understanding of the pathophysiological mechanism responsible for difficult airway. The causes of difficult airway in the newborn can be congenital or acquired.We present the case of a newborn with Treacher-Collins syndrome Type 1 [OMIM # 154500] with a mandibulofacial dysostosis, micrognathia, malar hypoplasia, cleft palate, without congenital heart disease, associated with extremely difficult intubation

ABSTRACT

Se realizó una investigación experimental tipo ensayo clínico controlado simple ciego con el fin de evaluar la relajación muscular y los predictores de vía aérea difícil en pacientes programados para cirugía general en el Hospital Central Universitario Dr. Antonio María Pineda. La muestra estuvo conformada por 100 pacientes distribuidos aleatoriamente en cuatro grupos de 25 pacientes cada uno. En los grupos Experimental-1 (E-1) y Control-1 (C-1) se utilizó una dosis del bloqueante neuromuscular Bromuro de Rocuronio de 0,6 mg/kg y en los grupos Experimental-2 (E-2) y Control-2 (C-2) de 1 mg/kg. La edad promedio de los pacientes fue de 34,8 ± 9,8 años; en los grupos E-1 y E-2, los predictores de vía aérea difícil predominantes fueron distancia esternomentoniana (32% y 42%), distancia tiromentoniana (24% y 40%), distancia interincisivos clase I (88% y 92 %), circunferencia de cuello  40 cm (16% y 8 %), Mallampati (88% y 40%), extensión atlanto-occipital (28% y 20%) y protrusión mandibular (28% y 20%). En el 72% y 80% de los pacientes de los grupos experimentales y control no hubo intento adicional de intubación orotraqueal (IOT); el tiempo invertido para alcanzar la IOT fue < 1 minuto en el grupo C-2 (64%) y E-2 (72%). Existen diferencias estadísticamente significativas entre el número de intentos para alcanzar la IOT, la presencia de predictores de vía aérea difícil y la dosis de bloqueante neuromuscular utilizada lo que evidencia de que a medida que se aumenta la dosis del medicamento hay mayor posibilidad de éxitos en la IOT, aun cuando estén presentes predictores de vía aérea difícil(AU)


An experimental simple blind controlled clinical trial was carried out to evaluate muscle relaxation and predictors of difficult airway in patients scheduled for general surgery at the Hospital Central Universitario Dr. Antonio María Pineda. The sample consisted of 100 patients randomly distributed into four groups of 25 patients each. Patients from the Experimental-1 (E-1) and Control-1 (C-1) groups received 0.6 mg/kg of the neuromuscular blocking agent Rocuronium Bromide while Experimetal-2 (E-2) and Control-2 (C-2) patients received a dosage of 1 mg/kg. Average age of participants was 34.8 ± 9.8 years. Predictors of difficult airway in E-1 and E-2 were sternomental distance (32% and 42%, thyromental distance (24% and 40%), interincisive distance class 1 (88% and 92%), neck circumference  40 cm (16% and 8%), Mallampati (88% and 40%), atlanto-occipital extension (28% and 20%) and mandibular protrusion (28% and 20%). In 72% and 80% of patients from the E and C groups there was not an additional attempt of orotracheal intubation (OTI); the time invested to reach the OTI was less than one minute in 64% of patients from the C-2 and 72% of the E-2. There are statistically significant differences between the number of attempts to reach the OTI, presence of predictors of difficult airway and the dose of Rocuronium Bromide which means that as the drug dosage increases, there is a greater possibility of success in the OTI, even when predictors of difficult airway are present(AU)

ABSTRACT

El Síndrome de Treacher Collins (STC) constituye un reto para el anestesiólogo por malformaciones craneofaciales que complican el manejo de su vía aérea e intubación. Presentamos el caso de una paciente (8 años) con diagnóstico de STC que debía someterse a una cirugía de colocación de implante de conducción ósea bajo anestesia general. Presentaba un antecedente de intubación difícil, marcada micrognatia y distancia tiromentoniana de 2 cm. Se planteó un esquema de intubación en dos etapas secuenciales. En la primera etapa se realizó una evaluación de la vía aérea (visualización de la glotis) bajo sedación con dexmedetomidina, remifentanilo y propofol. Al visualizar la glotis se pasó a la segunda etapa para realizar la intubación posterior a la inducción anestésica.El manejo exitoso se fundamentó en una sedación adecuada y la utilización de un videolaringoscopio con pala curva para la evaluación previa de la vía aérea y posterior intubación sin complicaciones


Treacher Collins Syndrome (TCS) constitutes a challenge for the anesthesiologist due to craniofacial malformations that make management of the airway and intubation difficult. We present a case of a patient (8-year-old) diagnosed with TCS who had to undergo surgery for the placement of a bone conduction implant under general anesthesia. She had a history of difficult intubation, marked micrognathia and a thyromental distance of 2 cm. An intubation scheme in two sequential stages was proposed. In the first stage, an evaluation of the airway (visualization of the glottis) was carried out under sedation with dexmedetomidine, remifentanil and propofol. When the glottis was visualized, we proceeded to the second stage to carry out intubation after anesthetic induction.The successful management of this case was based on adequate sedation and the use of a video laryngoscope with a curved blade for prior evaluation of the airway and subsequent intubation without complications

Na primeira etapa, foi realizada avaliação das vias aéreas (visualização da glote) sob sedação com dexmedetomidina, remifentanil e propofol. Quando a glote foi visualizada, a segunda etapa foi realizada para realização da intubação após a indução anestésica. O manejo bem-sucedido baseou-se na sedação adequada e no uso de videolaringoscópio com lâmina curva para avaliação prévia da via aérea e posterior intubação sem complicações

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La máscara laríngea es el equipamiento con el objetivo de aumentar la calidad, seguridad, cuidado, sin embargo, a pesar de tener uso universal y alta eficacia para la ventilación no está exenta de complicaciones. El objetivo de la presente Investigación fue identificar la frecuencia de complicaciones con el uso de mascara laríngea en los hospitales públicos Vicente Corral Moscoso y José Carrasco en la ciudad de Cuenca. Métodos: Es un estudio observacional, descriptivo, prospectivo, en 220 pacientes pediátricos, ASA I , II y III intervenidos en cirugías electivas y emergentes bajo anestesia general en un intervalo de tiempo de 30 a 240 minutos, de todas las especialidades médicas quirúrgicas del año 2018 ,se utilizaron los diferentes tipos de máscara. La muestra se obtuvo aplicando la fórmula para población desconocida (n = (Z2 x p x q)/ e2), nivel de confianza (Z): 95%. (1.96) Margen de error (e): 5% Probabilidad de ocurrencia del evento (p): 15% Probabilidad de no ocurrencia del evento (q): 85%. Resultados: 220 casos ingresados al estudio. El índice de complicaciones laríngeas es 5.9% , frecuentemente la tos y secreción sanguinolenta, asociándose factores como mascara clásica, edad (2-5 años), tiempo mayor de 60 minutos, mayor número de intentos, ASA> I, estado nutricional sobrepeso, e insertar en formación. Conclusión: La máscara laríngea es validada como dispositivo en anestesia pediátrica por aprendizaje rápido, baja tasa de fracaso, menores complicaciones y utilidad en vías aéreas difíciles, Es insuficiente la evidencia para respaldar el uso de un determinado dispositivo por encima de otro


Introduction: The laryngeal mask is the equipment with the aim of increasing quality, safety, care, however, despite having universal use and high efficacy for ventilation, it is not without complications. The objective of this research was to identify the frequency of complications with the use of a laryngeal mask in the Vicente Corral Moscoso and José Carrasco public hospitals in the city of Cuenca. Methods: It is an observational, descriptive, prospective study in 220 pediatric patients, ASA I, II and III who underwent elective and emergent surgeries under general anesthesia in a time interval of 30 to 240 minutes, of all surgical medical specialties of the year 2018, the different types of mask were used. The sample was obtained by applying the formula for unknown population (n = (Z2 x p x q) / e2), confidence level (Z): 95%. (1.96) Margin of error (e): 5% Probability of occurrence of the event (p): 15% Probability of non-occurrence of the event (q): 85%. Results: 220 cases entered the study. The rate of laryngeal complications is 5.9%, frequently cough and bloody discharge, associating factors such as classic mask, age (2-5 years), time greater than 60 minutes, greater number of attempts, ASA> I, nutritional status, overweight, and insert in formation. Conclusion: The laryngeal mask is validated as a device in pediatric anesthesia due to rapid learning, low failure rate, fewer complications and usefulness in difficult airways. The evidence is insufficient to support the use of a certain device over another.

ABSTRACT

Mundialmente el reconocimiento de la importancia de contar con una vía aérea permeable en una situación de emergencia o urgencia ha llegado a su punto máximo. Es por esto mismo que la búsqueda de alternativas a los métodos tradicionales para la obtención de esta misma, es un desafío para los profesionales de la salud. Se han descripto múltiples dispositivos para lograr este objetivo, dentro de los cuales se encuentra el tubo laríngeo, presentando diversas ventajas y mínimas desventajas, respaldado por distintos y variados estudios que han probado su eficiencia frente a otros dispositivos que tienen el mismo fin. El objetivo del presente trabajo es lograr la unificación del procedimiento en la colocación del tubo laríngeo por parte del personal Profesional de Enfermería[AU]


Globally, the recognition of the importance of having a permeable airway in an emergency or urgent situation has reached its peak. It is for this reason that the search for alternatives to traditional methods for obtaining it is a challenge for health professionals. Multiple devices have been described to achieve this objective, among which is the laryngeal tube, presenting various advantages and minimal disadvantages, supported by different and varied studies that have proven their efficiency against other devices that have the same purpose. The aim of the present work is to achieve the unification of the procedure in the placement of the laryngeal tube by the Professional Nursing staff[AU]


Globalmente, o reconhecimento da importância de ter uma via aérea permeável em uma situação de emergência ou urgência atingiu seu auge.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Hydatid cyst in the cervical region is an extremely rare condition that can create challenges for anesthesiologists. Timely recognition of difficult airway and preparing the management plan is crucial to avoid life-threatening complications such as hypoxic brain damage. We describe a case of difficult airway management in a patient with massive cervical hydatid cyst. We used a low-dose ketamine-propofol sedation and lidocaine spray for local oropharyngeal anesthesia. Muscular relaxants were not used, and spontaneous breathing was maintained during intubation. Recognition, assessment, and perioperative planning are essential for difficult airway management in patients with cervical hydatid cyst.


Resumo O cisto hidático na região cervical é uma condição extremamente rara que pode criar desafios para os anestesiologistas. O reconhecimento oportuno das vias aéreas difíceis e a preparação do plano de manejo são cruciais para evitar complicações com risco de vida, como danos cerebrais hipóxicos. Descrevemos um caso de difícil controle das vias aéreas em um paciente com cisto hidático cervical maciço. Utilizamos sedação com cetamina-propofol em baixa dose e spray de lidocaína para anestesia local orofaríngea. Relaxantes musculares não foram utilizados e a respiração espontânea foi mantida durante a intubação. O reconhecimento, a avaliação e o planejamento perioperatório são essenciais para o manejo difícil das vias aéreas em pacientes com cisto hidático cervical.

ABSTRACT

RESUMO Objetivo: Descrever o uso do bloqueio neuromuscular e de outras práticas entre os médicos brasileiros atuantes em unidades de terapia intensiva para pacientes adultos. Métodos: Um levantamento nacional on-line foi aplicado a intensivistas brasileiros. As questões foram selecionadas utilizando o método Delphi e avaliavam os dados demográficos dos médicos, as características da unidade de terapia intensiva, as práticas relativas ao manuseio das vias aéreas e o uso de bloqueio neuromuscular e sedação durante a intubação endotraqueal na unidade de terapia intensiva. Como desfecho secundário, aplicamos uma análise multivariada para avaliar fatores associados com o uso do bloqueio neuromuscular. Resultados: Responderam ao questionário 565 intensivistas de todas as regiões do país. A maioria dos que responderam era homens (65%), com média de idade de 38 ± 8,4 anos, e 58,5% dos participantes tinham título de especialista em terapia intensiva. Apenas 40,7% dos intensivistas relataram o uso de bloqueio neuromuscular durante todas ou em mais de 75% das intubações endotraqueais. Na análise multivariada, o número de intubações realizadas por mês e a especialização do médico em anestesiologia se associaram diretamente com o uso frequente de bloqueio neuromuscular. Etomidato e cetamina foram utilizados mais comumente na situação clínica de hipotensão e choque, enquanto propofol e midazolam foram mais comumente prescritos em situações de estabilidade hemodinâmica. Conclusão: O relato de uso de bloqueio neuromuscular foi baixo entre intensivistas, e os fármacos sedativos foram escolhidos segundo a estabilidade hemodinâmica do paciente. Estes resultados podem ajudar no delineamento de futuros estudos relativos ao manuseio das vias aéreas no Brasil.


Abstract Objective: To describe the use of neuromuscular blockade as well as other practices among Brazilian physicians in adult intensive care units. Methods: An online national survey was designed and administered to Brazilian intensivists. Questions were selected using the Delphi method and assessed physicians' demographic data, intensive care unit characteristics, practices regarding airway management, use of neuromuscular blockade and sedation during endotracheal intubation in the intensive care unit. As a secondary outcome, we applied a multivariate analysis to evaluate factors associated with the use of neuromuscular blockade. Results: Five hundred sixty-five intensivists from all Brazilian regions responded to the questionnaire. The majority of respondents were male (65%), with a mean age of 38 ( 8.4 years, and 58.5% had a board certification in critical care. Only 40.7% of the intensivists reported the use of neuromuscular blockade during all or in more than 75% of endotracheal intubations. In the multivariate analysis, the number of intubations performed monthly and physician specialization in anesthesiology were directly associated with frequent use of neuromuscular blockade. Etomidate and ketamine were more commonly used in the clinical situation of hypotension and shock, while propofol and midazolam were more commonly prescribed in the situation of clinical stability. Conclusion: The reported use of neuromuscular blockade was low among intensivists, and sedative drugs were chosen in accordance with patient hemodynamic stability. These results may help the design of future studies regarding airway management in Brazil.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Biological risks are currently of great interest and concern due to the coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) pandemic. In this setting, the exposure of anesthetists and healthcare personnel to patients infected with severe acute respiratory syndrome-CoV-2 causing COVID-19 in their professional practice makes an update in the knowledge of the subject essential. The aim is prevention and protection during procedures entailing a higher risk, as is the case of the so-called aerosol generators (by inhalation of droplets). Therefore, we recommend extreme standard precautions focused on hand washing and barrier protection through the use of personal protective equipment in accordance with comprehen sive prevention and protection protocols for anesthetists, patients, and operating rooms.


Resumen En la actualidad, los riesgos biológicos han tomado un gran interés y preocupación debido a la pandemia por COVID-19. En ese escenario, la exposición en su ejercicio profesional de los anestesiólogos y personal sanitario a pacientes infectados con SARS-CoV-2 causante de la COVID-19 hace imprescindible una actualización en el conocimiento del tema apuntando a la prevención y protecciones durante procedimientos que revisten mayor riesgo, como los denominados generadores de aerosoles (por inhalación de gotas). Por lo tanto, se recomienda extremar las precauciones estándar enfocadas al lavado de manos y protecciones de barrera equipo de protección personal (EPP) siguiendo protocolos de prevención y protección integral del anestesiólogo, del paciente y del quirófano. Dados los rápidos cambios en la evidencia disponible en esta patología emergente, muchas de las recomendaciones aquí pre sentadas serán sujeto de modificaciones o ajustes futuros.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: Un aspecto relevante en anestesia pediátrica es el manejo de la vía aérea. Diferencias anatómicas de esta población, hace que sean más susceptibles a dispositivos diseñados para su manejo. La videolaringoscopía mejora la visión panorámica de la glotis. El objetivo del presente estudio fue comparar el uso de la videolaringoscopía con la laringoscopía directa para intubación orotraqueal, en pacientes pediátricos. Métodos: Con un diseño descriptivo observacional, se estudiaron 276 casos, pacientes de 5 a 17 años, sometidos a cirugía planificada, con anestesia general más intubación orotraqueal. El especialista decidió el dispositivo para manejo. Los datos se transcribieron de los formularios y analizados con el programa SPSS 22.0. El análisis descriptivo se basó en mediana, moda, promedio, valor mínimo, valor máximo. Medidas de dispersión desvío estándar y rango. Se condideró un valor de p < 0.05 como estadísticamente significativo. Resultados: La edad promedio del estudio fue 9.83 años. Con laringoscopía directa 97.4% se realizó la intubación al primer intento y con videolaringoscopía el 88,4% (P=0.003). En el 94.2% de casos de laringoscopía directa se realizó una intubación exitosa en menos de 10 segundos, con videolaringoscopía fue del 75.2% (P<0.001). Complicaciones se presentaron en el 6.6% de intubaciones con videolaringoscopía versus el 2.6% con laringoscopía convencional (P=0.103). El 56.2% de especialistas prefieren laringoscopía directa para manejar una vía aérea pediátrica sin predictores de dificultad. Conclusiones: La videolaringoscopía brinda un apoyo adicional en el manejo de la vía aérea de rutina, amerita siempre conocimientos y destrezas previas. La evidencia para avalar una técnica por sobre otra es insuficiente


Introduction:A relevant aspect in pediatric anesthesia is the management of the airway. Anatomical differences in this population makes them more susceptible to devices designed for their management. Video laryngoscopy improves panoramic vision of the glottis. Objective: To compare the use of video laryngoscopy with direct laryngoscopy for orotracheal intubation in pediatric patients. Methods: With an observational descriptive design, 276 cases were studied, patients from 5 to 17 years old, undergoing planned surgery, with general anesthesia plus orotracheal intubation. The specialist decided on the handling device. The data was transcribed from the forms and analyzed with the SPSS 22.0 program. The descriptive analysis was based on median, mode, average, minimum value,maximum value. Standard deviation and range dispersion measurements. A value pf p < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: The average age of the study was 9.83 years. With direct laryngoscopy 97.4% intubation was performed at the first attempt and with video laryngoscopy 88.4% (p = 0.003). In 94.2% of cases of direct laryngoscopy, a successful intubation was performed in less than 10 seconds, with video laryngoscopy it was 75.2% (p = 0.000). Complications occurred in 6.6% of intubations with video laryngoscopy versus 2.6% with conventional laryngoscopy (p = 0.103). 56.2% of specialists prefer direct laryngoscopy to manage a pediatric airway without predictors of difficulty. Conclusions: Video laryngoscopy provides additional support in routine airway management, always requiring prior knowledge and skills. The evidence to support one technique over another is insufficient

ABSTRACT

Resumen: Introducción: Las masas congénitas de cabeza y cuello se asocian a asfixia perinatal e injuria cerebral con elevada mortalidad. La técnica EXIT (Ex Útero Intrapartum Treatment) consiste en asegurar la vía aérea del neonato, sin interrumpir la oxigenación y perfusión materno-fetal a través del soporte placentario. Esta técnica no ha sido estandarizada en países de medianos ingresos. Objetivo: Describir el caso clínico de 2 neonatos manejados mediante la técnica EXIT. Caso Clínico: Se reportan dos casos, uno con malformación linfática diagnosticada a la semana 20 gestación y el segundo con tiromegalia y polihidramnios diagnosticados a la semana 35 de gestación. En ambos casos, duran te la cesárea se realizó la técnica EXIT con un equipo conformado por neonatólogo, ginecólogo, anestesiólogo, cirujano pediatra, otorrinolaringólogo, enfermero y terapeuta respiratorio. En los dos pacientes se logró asegurar la vía aérea mediante intubación orotraqueal al primer intento. En el caso 1 se confirmó la malformación linfática y recibió escleroterapia, y en el caso 2 se diagnosticó hipotiroidismo congénito asociado a bocio, que fue manejado con levotiroxina. Los pacientes se mantuvieron 7 y 9 días con ventilación mecánica invasiva respectivamente y egresaron sin complicaciones respiratorias. Conclusiones: La técnica EXIT en estos casos fue un procedimiento seguro, llevado a cabo sin inconvenientes. Se necesita un equipo multidisciplinario y la disponibilidad de una unidad de cuidados intensivos neonatales, con el objetivo de reducir potenciales complica ciones y garantizar el manejo postnatal. Para lograr su ejecución, es indispensable el diagnóstico prenatal oportuno.


Abstract: Introduction: Congenital head and neck masses are associated with perinatal asphyxia and brain injury, increasing the risk of death. The EXIT (Ex Utero Intrapartum Treatment) technique con sists of ensuring the newborn's airway while is still receiving placental support. This technique has not been standardized in developing countries. Objective: To describe the clinical outcomes of two infants who underwent the EXIT technique. Clinical Case: We present two cases, one with lymphatic malformation diagnosed at 20 weeks of gestational age (WGE) and the second one, a preterm newborn with thyromegaly and polyhydramnios, diagnosed at 35 WGE. In both cases, during the C-section, the EXIT technique was performed with a team of a neonatologist, a gyne cologist, an anesthesiologist, a pediatric surgeon, an otolaryngologist, a nurse, and a respiratory therapist. In both patients, the neonatologist achieved to secure the airway through orotracheal intubation at the first attempt. In the first case, lymphatic malformation was confirmed and re ceived sclerotherapy, and the second one was diagnosed with congenital hypothyroidism which was managed with levothyroxine. The patients needed invasive mechanical ventilation for 7 and 9 days, respectively, and were discharged without respiratory complications. Conclusions: In these patients, the EXIT technique was a safe procedure, carried out without inconvenience. A multi disciplinary approach and the availability of a neonatal intensive care unit are needed to reduce potential complications and ensure postnatal management. Timely prenatal diagnosis is essential to perform this technique.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Introduction: In the management of the anticipated difficult airway (DA), awake intubation is the strategy of choice. In this context, flexible fibroscopy is the tool most widely used as the first choice. However, there is always the rare case where it may fail. Important findings: Six successful rescue cases using videolaryngoscopy following failed fibroscopy in patients with anticipated DA, and 1 case of rescued extubation of an airway previously secured with fiberoptic bronchoscopy. Conclusion: Videolaringoscopy may be an adequate tool to use as a backup plan for the management of an anticipated DA.


Resumen Introducción: En el manejo de vía aérea difícil anticipada la estrategia de elección es la intubación con el paciente despierto. En este contexto, la fibroscopia flexible es la herramienta más utilizada como plan A; sin embargo, en raras ocasiones puede fallar. Hallazgos importantes: Se presentan seis casos de rescates exitosos con videolaringoscopia luego de fibroscopia fallida en pacientes con vía aérea difícil anticipada, y un caso de rescate de extubación de vía aérea asegurada previamente con fibrobroncoscopio. Conclusión: La videolaringoscopia puede ser una adecuada herramienta como plan B para el manejo de la vía aérea difícil anticipada.

ABSTRACT

Abstract The 2020 pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, had its headquarters in China. It causes Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and presents a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations, ranging from entirely asymptomatic through severe acute respiratory failure and death. Presuming a significant quantity of ventilator-dependent patients, several institutions strategically delayed elective surgeries. Particularly procedures performed involving the nasal mucosa, such as a transsphenoidal approach of the pituitary gland, considering the tremendous level of viral shedding. Nevertheless, critical cases demand expeditious resolution. Those situations are severe pituitary apoplexy, declining consciousness level, or risk of acute visual loss. This case presents a successful urgent perioperative management of a 47 year-old male COVID-19 positive patient who presented to the Emergency Department with a left frontal headache that culminated with diplopia, left eye ptosis, and left visual acuity loss after 5 days. Transsphenoidal hypophysectomy was uneventfully performed, and the patient was discharged from the hospital on postoperative day four. It additionally describes in detail the University of Mississippi Medical Center airway management algorithm for patients infected with the novel coronavirus who need emergent surgical attention.


Resumo A pandemia de 2020 causada pelo novo coronavírus, COVID-19, teve seu epicentro na China. Causa Síndrome Respiratória Aguda Grave pelo Coronavírus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) e apresenta um amplo espectro de manifestações clínicas, que vão desde nenhum sintoma a insuficiência respiratória aguda grave e óbito. Com a expectativa de um número significativo de pacientes dependentes de ventilador, várias instituições estrategicamente adiaram cirurgias eletivas. Esse é o caso principalmente de procedimentos envolvendo a mucosa nasal, como a via transesfenoidal para a hipófise, devido ao nível imenso de disseminação de material viral. Não obstante, casos críticos requerem resolução acelerada. Essas situações são grave apoplexia hipofisária, diminuição do nível de consciência ou risco de perda visual aguda. O presente caso relata o manejo perioperatório bem sucedido de urgência de paciente do sexo masculino de 47 anos de idade com COVID-19 que chegou ao Pronto Socorro com cefaleia frontal à esquerda que culminou com diplopia, ptose do olho esquerdo e perda de acuidade visual à esquerda após 5 dias. A hipofisectomia transesfenoidal ocorreu sem intercorrências e o paciente recebeu alta do hospital no quarto dia do pós-operatório. Adicionalmente, descrevemos em detalhe o algoritmo de manejo de via aérea da University of Mississippi Medical Center para pacientes infectados pelo novo coronavírus e que necessitam de atenção cirúrgica de emergência.
