To assess the adequacy of the general anesthesia commonly employed for Cesarean section, we used isolated forearm technique to study 30 parturients (physical status ASA I/II, aged 17-35 yr) scheduled for nonemergent abdominal delivery. Anesthesia was induced with intravenous thiopental (3 mg/kg, 250 mg maximum) and succinylcholine (1.5 mg/kg), and then(More)
Airway obstruction remains a constant problem in acute care. This is particularly true when there are anatomical or pathological abnormalities, trauma, or when repeated failed attempts at endoscopic or blind intubations have left a bloody field, preventing clear visualization of the vocal cords. Our refinement of translaryngeal guided intubation (TLI) uses(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Factors governing the spread of local anesthetic in the subarachnoid space have been controversial because of failure to consider the drug related and physical factors. Most studies of isobaric spinal anesthesia in the literature were made using plain bupivacaine which is slightly hypobaric. In this study the effects of drug dose,(More)

Endotracheal intubation is the most commonly employed technique in airway management. Having an endotracheal tube (ETT) in place, however, does not guarantee a patent airway. Tube obstruction due to kinking, blood clots/secretion, dislodgment, or patient's biting can occur. These complications are life-threatening or even fatal. Employing a Guedel oral(More)
