American Heart Association (AHA) 2010 cardiopulmonary resuscitation guidelines recommend high-quality chest compressions (minimum interruption, a pace >100 compressions/min, and a depth more than 5 cm). They propose minor changes for pregnant women: manual left deviation of the uterus or a left-lateral incline of 27°–30° to alleviate pressure on the inferior vena cava. We examined the performance of the Pentax-AWS Airwayscope (AWS) and Macintosh laryngoscope (McL) for airway management during… CONTINUE READING
