Article of the Month

    

Dear colleagues and airway enthusiast 
The European Airway Management Society is introducing a new feature – Article of the Month. 
This is designed to provide an opportunity to our members to highlight and share airway related topics and to open discussion forums in order to share clinical experience for the benefit of all EAMS members. 
The Article of the Month will be made available via the EAMS website and is going to be accompanied by a short text (up to 200 words) explaining why is this article being selected. 
EAMS members with login to eamshq.net will have access to the articles as full-text PDF's.
We would like to encourage our members to propose articles of the month. The short text accompanying the article will also be made available on line with full acknowledgement of the author who proposed the article. 
The final decision to go on-line will be taken by the EAMS Board of Directors. 

Best regards 
R. Tino Greif 
President of the European Airway Management Society

    
For December article of the month, we have selected an article from the December issue of Anaesthesia:
 
Although this article appears to suggest what many of us think we already know, this is one of the first articles to use the power of the systematic review and meta-analysis to state that anaesthetists are better of using videolaryngoscopes when managing difficult airways. This article has confirmed that VLSs have higher success rate, shorter intubation time, are associated with fewer intubation attempts and are less likely to cause airway injury when compared to Macintosh laryngoscope. All extremely relevant factors for difficult airway management.

Please be aware that the full texts will be provided to EAMS members with login to eamshq.net.

With best wishes
Iljas Hodzovic, MD, FRCA
