Airway management.
Percutaneous transtracheal emergency ventilation with a self‐made device in an animal model
A self‐made device consisting of a three‐way stopcock connected between a G‐15 transtracheal airway catheter and an oxygen supply was used in a simulated ’cannot intubate, cannot ventilate’ scenario and the hypothesis that the effectiveness of the device depends on the body weight of the experimental animals was tested.
Studies in transtracheal ventilation catheters
A dual‐lumen needle was designed, to provide exclusive respiratory access and support, in the instance of total upper airway obstruction, and was successfully conducted in a live canine subject.
Techniques for emergency ventilation through a needle cricothyroidotomy
This system of ventilation is inferior to a Manujet in terms of robustness and calibration throughout its range of pressures and flows, but seems appropriate for emergency use in the absence of a purpose‐made jet ventilator.
Can't intubate, can't ventilate! A survey of knowledge and skills in a large teaching hospital

There were widespread deficits in ‘can't intubate, can't ventilate’ knowledge and skills in anaesthetists and anaesthetic assistants for emergency tracheal access.
Percutaneous transtracheal ventilation: experimental and practical aspects.
This study defined the limited circumstances under which a 15-gauge needle, connected to oxygen at 50 pounds per square inch (psi), can provide an emergency transtracheal airway.
Needle vs surgical cricothyroidotomy: a short cut to effective ventilation
A self‐inflating bag used with a cuffed tube inserted through a horizontal scalpel incision provides sustained adequate ventilation, has a relatively low complication rate compared to needle cricothyroidotomy and is a skill that can be easily taught to paramedics, nurses and doctors.
The importance of flow and pressure release in emergency jet ventilation devices
The aim of the present study was to measure the efficacy of flow and pressure release of three previously described self‐assembled jet devices and one commercially available tool.
