Article of the Month


Dear colleagues and airway enthusiast 
The European Airway Management Society is introducing a new feature – Article of the Month. 
This is designed to provide an opportunity to our members to highlight and share airway related topics and to open discussion forums in order to share clinical experience for the benefit of all EAMS members. 
The Article of the Month will be made available via the EAMS website and is going to be accompanied by a short text (up to 200 words) explaining why is this article being selected. 
EAMS members with login to will have access to the articles as full-text PDF's.
We would like to encourage our members to propose articles of the month. The short text accompanying the article will also be made available on line with full acknowledgement of the author who proposed the article. 
The final decision to go on-line will be taken by the EAMS Board of Directors. 

Best regards 
R. Tino Greif 
President of the European Airway Management Society


Dear colleagues,
I hope you manage to stay well and healthy and are still able to  get to some reading done in this crazy year. Flexible endoscopic intubation has been praised as the standard technique for expected difficult intubations by numerous international guidelines. Current literature suggests that this is an easy technique with a high success rate and low complication rate. However, having taught flexible endoscopic intubations at workshop skill stations throughout the world, I found that anesthesiologists' skills in this technique are often inadequate. There seems a significant disconnect between published literature and clinical reality. 

In this month's manuscript, Dr. Grange et al. examined the experience with flexible intubation in the UK. They show what others already knew: one of the critical skills in anesthesiology is not as frequently used as it should be, the complication rate does not seem to match the published data.

Enjoy the read in the EAMS journal TACC!


Best wishes,
Rudy Noppens
