Despite chest movement being clearly visible, adequacy of ventilation is difficult to assess owing to the lack of end-tidal CO 2 monitoring. Profound muscle relaxation is achieved with intermittent succinylcholine combined with atropine to avoid bradycardia or a short-acting non-depolarizing agent e.

To reduce the drying ventilatiln the oral mucosa and the inspissation of secretions, humidified oxygen should be administered to all patients postoperatively. High-risk patients and jet ventilation. This is a correction to: However, there is a risk of barotrauma with use of a high-pressure gas system, especially if the jet is below the larynx. A cuff is inflated in the trachea, protecting the lower airway from contamination.

Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. Evaluation of the location, size, extent, and mobility of any lesion is required. Movements of the vocal cords due to the low-frequency jet stream are diminished to a laryjgology extent by the high-frequency jet stream, which prevents a complete closure of the vocal cords, and only a slight movement of the peripheral parts of the vocal cords is observed.

These methods provide the optimal surgical view and reduce the degree of stimulation but there is no physical protection of the airway. The patients’ diagnoses are listed in Table 1. Intraoperatively the anaesthetist must pay special attention to protecting eyes, neck, and teeth while optimizing surgical access in what may be a crowded area. Instead of a hand-held switch, the onset and offset of inspiration are controlled by a high-frequency flow interrupter which may be pneumatically or electronically controlled.


Intraoperative problems include cuff perforation, loss of airway control due to difficult insertion of the tracheostomy tube ensure pre-oxygenation prior to tube insertionand airway fire cutting diathermy should be avoided. Postoperatively, all patients had sufficient spontaneous respiration.

These patients often have malignant lesions and may show ,aryngology of its treatment e. No complications due to the ventilation technique were observed.

High-frequency jet ventilation–a review of its role in laryngology.

The mode of ventilation depends on the type of surgery being undertaken and the access required to the operative site see Table 1.

This article was originally published in. The arterial oxygen saturation SaO 2 of the patients with laryngeal stenosis Cotton III with hypoxemia with mist mask and 1. The SHFJV is superior to the single-frequency jet ventilation techniques for use in obese patients and patients with pulmonary diseases.

Of the patients, were female, were male, and 40 were children ranging from neonate to 14 years of age. All staff must be familiar with laser surgery and local safety policies. This pressure drop and the placement of the jet nozzles in the proximal part of the endoscope ensure that no high pressures occur in the distal part of the endoscopy tube.

Superimposed High-Frequency Jet Ventilation for Laryngeal and Tracheal Surgery

If no movement at all is required, the low-frequency jet stream can be shut off for a short time. Sign in to customize your interests Laryngopogy in to your personal account. At this point, ventilation of the patient karyngology not possible with any current ventilation technique. Tracheal resection is generally only performed in specialized units and a full examination is beyond the scope of this article.


The 2 jet nozzles are placed apart, one beside the other toward the distal end of the jet laryngoscope.

Anaesthesia for airway surgery | BJA Education | Oxford Academic

The mean values of the PaO 2 were The use of specifically-designed laser tubes that resist damage and dissipate the high energy of the laser, thus diminishing the risk of tube fire and reflection damage to adjacent tissue.

Even large silicon or metal stents can be inserted without any problems. Other disadvantages ventilayion movement of the operative field and gastric insufflation if the suspension laryngoscope is poorly aligned.

The high-frequency jet stream, which provides to breaths per minute, causes a delay of the expiration of gas and prevents the lungs from being totally exhausted at the end of respiration.

The equipment required for emergency airway access should be available in recovery, and anaesthetic and surgical staff must remain nearby until the patient is ready for discharge. Sign in to access your subscriptions Sign in to your personal account.
