It has been agreed that the safe endotracheal tube intracuff pressures ranges from 20cmH2O to 30cmH2O with pressures above that range being dangerous to the patient even for a short time. While there are many different methods of inflation, the cuff manometer is considered the standard. However, its applicability in clinical practice is marred with numerous hindrances. Without the cuff manometer, anaesthesia providers employ a varied range of subjective methods to inflate and estimate optimal…

Application of a Loss of Resistance Syringe for Obtaining the Adequate Cuff Pressures of Endotracheal Intubated Patients in an Emergency Department
TLDR
The range of air volumes and pressures for cuff inflation varied and it may not be possible to obtain the appropriate pressure using the LOR syringe technique.
Interview method affects incidence of postoperative sore throat
Two hundred and forty‐two routine surgical patients who had undergone general anaesthesia, were questioned about postoperative sore throat by one of two methods, either direct or indirect
