Cannot ventilate-cannot intubate an infant: surgical tracheotomy or transtracheal cannula?

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

An unanticipated difficult airway is very uncommon in infants. The recommendations for managing the cannot ventilate-cannot intubate (CVCI) situation in infants and small children are based on difficult airway algorithms for adults. These algorithms usually recommend placement of a transtracheal cannula or performing a surgical tracheotomy as a last resort. In this study, we compared the success rate and time used for inserting a transtracheal cannula vs performing a modified surgical tracheotomy in a piglet model.
