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

    

Dear Collogues and Airway Enthusiasts,

This month's article, chosen by Dr. Michael Seltz Kristensen, is a reminder that: if difficult/failed direct laryngoscopy is expected we must: 1) at least consider awake intubation... and 2) if we decide to induce anaesthesia we must not soleley rely on the success of an angulated videolaryngoscope, but we must have other rescue options avalable, including alternative techniques for intubation and a plan that is predicted to be successfull for ventilation/front of neck access.
