Airway Management In Children Undergoing General Anaesthesia

An objective of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of apnoeic oxygenation during airway management in children. Airway management is a core clinical skill in anesthesia. Pre-oxygenation before induction of anesthesia is a standard practice to prevent desaturation. Apnoeic oxygenation in adults is efficient and prolongs the time to desaturation. Anaesthetic agents and muscle relaxants used in general anesthesia inhibit spontaneous respiration, resulting in apnoea. 

Classifications Of Pneumatization Of Temporal Bone
