Evaluation of Patient Outcomes of High Flow versus Low Flow Nasal Oxygen during Outpatient Bronchoscopy under Conscious Sedation at Thoracic Procedure Suite in Lyell McEwin Hospital

Singankutti Mudalige Thanuja Nilushi Priyangika, Moayed Alawami and Shanka Karunarathne

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: February 05, 2022

High flow nasal oxygen (HFNO) has been shown to reduce desaturations during flexible bronchoscopy. We evaluated outcomes of HFNO vs. low flow nasal oxygen (LFNO) on intraprocedural hypoxemia, the demand of sedative and reversal medications, postprocedure complications, procedure conversion to general anaesthesia and patient comfort during outpatient standard and EBUS (Endo Bronchial Ultrasound) guided bronchoscopy under conscious sedation. A Prospective open-label study where the first 42 patien...

A Novel Approach to Confirm Endotracheal Tube Depth Using Ultrasound Color Doppler: A Cadaveric Model

Ariel Daube, MD, Leroy Phillips, MD, Erin West, MS, Lorraine Ng, MD, Lindsey T Chaudoin, MD, Arthur Smerling, MD and David Kessler, MD, MSc

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 24, 2022

Proper endotracheal tube (ETT) depth must be confirmed immediately after intubation. We developed a novel point-of-care ultrasound examination called the cuff puff (CP) and hypothesized it would accurately confirm appropriate ETT depth in a cadaveric model. CP comprises visualization of cuff inflation using color Doppler sonography. On a single fresh frozen cadaver, a well-positioned tube was defined as the tip lying between 6.5 cm below the vocal cords and 3 cm above the carina. The ETT was pla...
