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

    

This months article comes from Dr. Rüdiger Noppens and focuses on a back-up strategy for potential difficult re-intubation in the ICU setting. The authors examined the impact of the guide wire of the staged extubation set on correct positioning and patient tolerance. This is one of the first manuscripts looking on the feasibility of this strategy over a prolonged time period. Have fun!
