  • 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 chin lift (CL), jaw thrust (JT), and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) are often used. In this study, we examined the comparative efficacy of these maneuvers in children scheduled to undergo adenoidectomy. Sixteen children aged 2–9 yr were anesthetized with sevoflurane. During spontaneous… CONTINUE READING
