Effect of combined mouth closure and chin lift on upper airway dimensions during routine magnetic resonance imaging in pediatric patients sedated with propofol.
BACKGROUND In pediatric patients, obstruction of the upper airway is a common problem during general anesthesia. Chin lift is a commonly used technique to improve upper airway patency. However,Expand

Effect of common airway manoeuvres on upper airway dimensions and clinical signs in anaesthetized, spontaneously breathing children.
Chin lift, jaw thrust and these manoeuvres combined with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) can be used to improve the patency of the upper airway during general anaesthesia. We used videoExpand

The Effect of Chin Lift, Jaw Thrust, and Continuous Positive Airway Pressure on the Size of the Glottic Opening and on Stridor Score in Anesthetized, Spontaneously Breathing Children
Chin lift and jaw thrust are two common maneuvers used to improve the patency of the upper airway during general anesthesia. We investigated the effect of these maneuvers combined with continuousExpand

Effect of airway opening manoeuvres on thoraco-abdominal asynchrony in anaesthetized children.
Thoraco-abdominal asynchrony is frequently encountered during inhalation anaesthesia in children with adenotonsillar hypertrophy causing an upper airway obstruction. The study goal was to evaluateExpand

The Effects of Common Airway Maneuvers on Airway Pressure and Flow in Children Undergoing Adenoidectomies
Obstruction of the upper airway occurs frequently in anesthetized, spontaneously breathing children, especially in those with adenoidal hyperplasia. To improve airway patency, maneuvers such as chinExpand

The Impact of Postoperative Nasal Packing on Sleep-Disordered Breathing and Nocturnal Oxygen Saturation in Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome
Nasal septum surgery is frequently performed to establish a functional nasal airway. In these patients obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is frequently present. Although patients with OSAS areExpand

Effects of three different types of management on the elimination kinetics of volatile anaesthetics
The effectiveness of three types of management on the elimination kinetics of volatile anaesthetics was studied prospectively in 45 patients randomised to one of three groups. Patients wereExpand

Carbon dioxide narcosis due to inappropriate oxygen delivery: a case report
BackgroundOxygen delivery to patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease may be challenging because of their potential hypoxic ventilatory drive. However, some oxygen delivery systems such asExpand
