This third installment of the history of basic airway management discusses the transitional—“progressive”—years of anesthesia from 1904 to 1960. During these 56 yr, airway management was provided primarily by basic techniques with or without the use of a face mask. Airway maneuvers were inherited from the artisanal era: head extension and mandibular advancement. The most common maneuver was head extension, also used in bronchoscopy and laryngoscopy. Basic airway management success was essential…

An Anesthesiologist’s Perspective on the History of Basic Airway Management: The “Modern” Era, 1960 to Present

This fourth and last installment of my history of basic airway management discusses the current (i.e., “modern”) era of anesthesia and resuscitation, from 1960 to the present. These years were

An Anesthesiologist’s Perspective on the History of Basic Airway Management: The “Artisanal Anesthetic” Era 1846 to 1904

This second installment of the history of basic airway management covers the early—artisanal—years of anesthesia from 1846 to 1904, where the jaw thrust and chin lift were described in the artisanal years and used primarily with inhalation anesthesia in the spontaneously breathing patient and less often with negative-pressure ventilation in the apneic victim.

An Anesthesiologist’s Perspective on the History of Basic Airway Management: The “Preanesthetic” Era—1700 to 1846

Basic airway management modern history starts in the early 18th century in the context of resuscitation of the apparently dead. History saw the rise and fall of the mouth-to-mouth and then of the

A study of the deaths associated with anesthesia and surgery: based on a study of 599, 548 anesthesias in ten institutions 1948-1952, inclusive.

The death rate (and why deaths occurred) attributable to anesthesia whether due to agent or technique or to their misapplications is determined and the responsibility of the anesthetist in the total care of the surgical patient when failure occurred is assessed.

Respirators and Respiratory Care

Scandinavian scientists and physicians have contributed greatly to the field of respirators and respiratory care, as has the specialty of anesthesiology.

A restatement of anaesthetic principles.

The anaesthetist is today in the position of being able to use combinations of drugs in dosages which are virtually innocuous to the patient whatever his condition may be, or whatever operation it is proposed to undertake, which would eliminate most of the uncertainty and superstition that have grown up in the past.

A comparison of the mouth-to-mouth and mouth-to-airway methods of artificial respiration with the chest-pressure arm-lift methods.

QUESTIONS may be raised whether effective tidal exchange of air can be expected with the routine application of the currently taught chest-pressure arm-lift methods of resuscitation and whether the
