Airway management is one of primary responsibilities of anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists in the OR. The care of patients with airway disease is an especially significant challenge. These patients often represent the highest risk population in anesthetic practice because of the potential for catastrophic and possibly fatal airway loss. This book will provide a video-illustrated, practical guide to the management of routine and complex patients and procedures. Each case will begin with a general discussion of the important topics encountered in the case. Then the case will be presented along with a series of questions. Images and video will present the patient's anatomy as well as use of intubation and other management equipment. Video and images will present relevant portions of the operative procedure. Each question will then be fully answered.
